Yahoo Rolls Out New Search Experience

Yahoo's New "Search Experience"

Yahoo's New "Search Experience"

Although Yahoo is still powered using Bing technology, they are rolling out a new “search experience” today. This “experience” includes a box of vertical tabs at the top of certain search results.  This “slide deck” seems to appear for the majority of entertainment related queries.

I like that we are finally seeing some innovation from Yahoo – it’s been a while – and I think it’s important that Yahoo! continues to differentiate themselves despite using Bing’s technology. That said, I’m not quite sure how I feel about tabbing through results and the impacts on organic results are too soon to tell as well.

What do you think? Have you used the new features yet?
