Yahoo! Integrates Lyrics Search into Results

May 8, 2007 - 10:10 am 0 by

As a big fan of music and especially of singing harmonies, I like to know the words of the songs I sing along to when I'm onstage in the shower car. Lyric search results have never been quite perfect, and people always get some words wrong. It's nice to know that Yahoo! Music just launched its own lyrics website and the search results are being integrated into Yahoo SERPs.

The Yahoo! Search Blog covers the debut in more detail, and I was eager to try it out.

Some of the results are typical. Searching for "[artist] lyrics" showed the new shortcut in the results:

Puddle of Mudd - Lyrics Search (Yahoo!)

However, searching for "[artist] [songname] lyrics" didn't bring up the shortcut:

Puddle of Mudd - "Blurry" Song Lyrics Search (Yahoo!)

I can understand if people feel that the shortcut isn't necessary because there's really only one official result, but I still see a use for it.
