My Yahoo! Search

october 14, 2004

Yahoo! has been beta testing their personalized search named My Yahoo! Search. It comes on the heels of Amazon's release of a9 and AskJeeves release of MyJeeves. Right now I am using My Yahoo! Search more than the other two because I use a few of the other Yahoo! properties (maps, My Yahoo!, finance, and mail). a9 looks good especially since it uses Google for its web searches -- and also because it has links into Amazon, Google images, and IMDb. I never really liked AskJeeves (its bot is a bit rude and its search results not as good as Inktomi [Yahoo!] nor Google), so MyJeeves really does not appeal to me.
