Enhanced Answers Integration in Yahoo! Search Results

As you may have seen, we have been integrating knowledge from the Yahoo! Answers community into search to enhance your search experience. We recently made some changes to the way these answers are presented:

As you can see, the new section features an excerpt of the best answers to questions that are relevant to your search. The excerpt gives you a more detailed preview of the content from the Answers community before you click through. In this example for “best hybrid cars” you actually get a whole lot of information – one best answer cites the breadth of hybrids to choose from, another user mentions he’s heard good things about the Prius, and another discusses the potentially lower maintenance of hybrids.

So if you’re looking for personal experiences with tennis camps, finding places off the beaten path, or researching the best hybrid car, you’ll now have an extra option on Yahoo! Search (scroll down the results to see them).

Try it and let us know what you think – your feedback is essential and very appreciated.

Happy Thanksgiving! (Don?t forget the pumpkin pie!)
