Bing Powered Yahoo Images Brings Back Old Yahoo Search Features

Jan 14, 2013 • 8:22 am | comments (4) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Yahoo Search Engine & Yahoo SEO

Yahoo announced that Yahoo Image search now has the ability to search Flickr images, as well as filter images based on re-use or re-posting under Creative Commons terms.

Yahoo Image Search Powered By Bing Adds Flickr Photos & Creative Commons Filter

When I first saw this news, I thought, didn't Yahoo already offer this years and years ago. And yes they did. As Matt McGee reports, they had Flickr results in 2007 and creative commons filters in 2009 - both stories I covered, which is why I remembered it.

So why is Yahoo reporting that this is new? Well, it is the new old.

When Yahoo switched to search results powered by Bing, they quietly removed images on Flickr and the creative commons filter. Now they added it back. So, in a sense, Yahoo is catching up to itself.
