Yahoo Begins to Indent Search Results

Aug 19, 2008 • 8:12 am | comments (4) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Yahoo Search Engine & Yahoo SEO

I am 99.999% sure this is a new user interface for Yahoo Search. In the past, Yahoo never ever indented search results. In fact, in the past I thought they did do indenting and then stopped, but Yahoo told me that they have "never grouped results."

Many search results, including a search for search engine roundtable return grouped results now. Here is a picture:

This is 99.999% new behavior from Yahoo Search.

This was launched in early June. So it's new, but not <i>new</i> new. :)

As far as I know there wasn't a blog post or press release announcing the change. Feel free to email me if you need confirmation that I work on Yahoo! Search: first initial followed by last name
