Yahoo Search and Syndicated Data

Yahoo’s new search is up and running with some new features.

The one I find most interesting is the addition to search results of a notification if a syndicated data feed is available for the particular site. If it is, you can go directly to the feed — or you can have the feed added to your My Yahoo! page. For example, take a look at Don Park’s search results on Yahoo Search.

At the moment, it appears this capability only is being used with weblog pages — but the eventual implications for corporate sites could be significant, bringing the use of syndicated data more into the mainstream.
