Yahoo Blog Search implementation is very odd!

Posted by geeknews at 1:06 PM on October 11, 2005

I was jolted this morning when I realized that although Yahoo is including blogs in their regular news search be it in the margin, that I thought they had a direct way to get blog only results. Thier implementation is really weird, and you will see what I am talking about in the next paragraph. Unless I am missing something, what they have done here is horrible.

Click this link http://blog.news.search.yahoo.com/blog/search?p=geek news and see what results you get, and then go to this link http://blog.news.search.yahoo.com and you will see it re-directs to thier main news search page, search for Geek News, you end up with two separate sets of search results.

So unless I am missing something big here were is the direct link to this Blog search page? Really poor implementation unless I am just totally missing something.

    When I engered Geek News in the blog search page, a list of blogs, including yours, appeared in the right hand column, near where the google ads usually appear. The heading says Blog Beta.

    Did you see that, and was that what you were looking for?
