Yahoo Search Engine Adds Suggestions

An increased amount of people are noticing that Yahoo has added search suggestions after users type more than two letters in the search field on Yahoo.com. This was first reported by Search Engine Land but was discovered recently by DigitalPoint Forums members.

Yahoo Search Suggestions (Ironic, isn't it?)

The feature, according to many, is called "Search Suggestions." In fact, according to Barry's report on Search Engine Land, you can disable it if you don't like it, which some DigitalPoint Forums members have done.

If you don't like the suggestion feature you can also use http://search.yahoo.com (which has yet to implement it).

The Suggestions are annoying. If this is how they want to catch up with Google I feel sorry for them.

I find the suggestion feature very useful, especially when I'm not exactly sure of the precise phrase I'm looking for. Often times if I start to type in part of it, the exact phrase that I want is shown. Highly useful IMO.

I have a suggestion, if it does to much, it makes me feel like i'm losing control. I don't like the big brother is watching scenario.

I am glad that Yahoo is now offering a much more open and interlinking search system. I am also gald that they are providing Google video links. www.aidsfraudvideo.com www.starlines.ispeedway.com

But I really like it. Atleast users can have keyword suggestions by it.

I want a search engine but I do NOT want a long list of suggestions. I don't want to have to keep turning it off either - I am now at a loss as to what service to use - Google and now it seems yahoo have lost the plot
