Yahoo’s web 3.0 move?

May 10, 2008

The latest news about Yahoo’s new beta test in India for Glue Pages (ahhm, familiar landing page design…) – a search that generates text, images and video results in a single results page – is one step towards web 3.0, the semantic web. It is great to see this coming from Yahoo, especially in a difficult time it’s experiencing now following the massive drop in share price after the formal breaking of the Microsoft deal.

I have tried searching for ‘apple’ – one of the web 3.0 searching stones – and though it obviously did not interpret the meaning of what I was looking for (i.e. display only ‘fruit’ relevant results, or brand relevant results) it did show a very wide pallet of results that covered all meanings and all content formats, ensuring one can find what they are looking for in first glance.

go-go yahoo!
