"Yahoo to offer structured Web search," announces a post in MacWorld. According to the article, users can now "search around select terms, rather than navigate through a large number of search results."
"If a user enters the words "mobile phone" in the search box, for example, apart from throwing up the usual search results containing the phrase "mobile phone," Yahoo's new structured search will also offer pull-down menus with choices including mobile phone brands, technologies and specifications, and other features, said Ricardo Baeza-Yates, Yahoo's vice president of research for Europe and Latin America, in an interview."
Ricardo Baeza-Yates, Yahoo's vice president of research for Europe and Latin America said, "The problem, which we are trying to solve, is to make the search for global queries also fast, as the latency of the network is the main problem."
This sure will help run searches on Yahoo! quicker.
