Yahoo's My Web - personalized search

Posted on Wednesday, Apr 27 2005 @ 19:53 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Yahoo today rolled out a beta of its personalized search. It is similar to the personal search that Google launched a few days ago, it allows users to archive their search activity and results, and then share the information with other people.
"My Web is the next step in our vision of integrating search, personal search and community by providing users an easy way to have their own personal Web search experience that incorporates the best of the Web and what matters most to them," Qi Lu, vice president of engineering for Yahoo Search, said in a statement.
My Web also gives users the ability to archive exact copies of websites as they appear at a certain time and import bookmark links from Internet Explorer. Users will also be given the opportunity to add notes to saved webpages, create websites detailing favorite saved pages and publish shared pages via RSS feeds.
