Yahoo Search

Everybody is talking about it, so I decided to take a look for myself.

My first query was the inevitable vanity query. And the first thing that I noticed is that it returned the old userland hosted weblog before the current weblog. Since the hosted weblog hasn’t been updated in almost four months, it looks like the temporal side of Yahoo search could use a bit more tweaking.

The next thing that I noticed is that I didn’t see the Add to My Yahoo! link for my RSS feed. So I searched for the shifted librarian – no RSS feed there either. Then I realized that it would help to actually have a My Yahoo! account, so I created an account and was able to find the shifted librarian feed. Went back to my vanity query and still no joy.

I have no idea why my feed wasn’t found, but I ended up manually adding my feed to My Yahoo! I hope to report back when my feed shows up on my vanity query.
