Yahoo! Search Places Yahoo! Buzz on SERP Pages

May 1, 2006 - 8:49 am 4 by

DigitalPoint Forums reports that Yahoo! has added, what seems to be a totally irrelevant feature, to the Yahoo! Search results page. It does not work in all browsers, so it seems to be one of those tests, it works in Firefox. Do a search on anything, I did it on yahoo and you will noticed this big box with a yellow/brown header on the right side named "Buzz Popular Searches" and it constantly refreshes with popular searches ranked from 1 though 12.

The Yahoo! Buzz Index "is the percentage of Yahoo! users searching for that subject on a given day, multiplied by a constant to make the number easier to read." But what does the listed searches in the buzz index have to do with my search query on "yahoo?" I have no idea!
