Some people have noticed that Yahoo!’s news search no longer shows blogsearch results alongside it. Normally I’d assume that if the blog search in News results disappeared, it meant one of two things: 1) Blog search was about to roll out as a separate product, or 2) maybe Yahoo! acquired their own blogsearch company? But downloadsquad has a different theory:
I received information that this move was the result of the rampant splog problem and only a trickle of click-through traffic. Thus the overhead to operate it wasn’t justified.
Does anyone know the skinny on Yahoo! blogsearch? Is it gone for good, rolling out into a separate product, or maybe making way for some acquired company?
