Final week I reported that Yahoo Search posted on Twitter that it will likely be making search cool once more. As I posted on Search Engine Land yesterday, we acquired extra proof that Yahoo is de facto shifting ahead with bettering its search service.
Final night time, Jim Lanzone, the CEO of Yahoo (extra about him under), responded to Greg Sterling and myself about Yahoo stepping into search:
Greg, I believe you and Barry know – there are at all times new methods across the mountain. No purpose to go straight at it. However we’re excited to begin exploring once more…and will probably be affected person figuring all of it out.

So sure, we acquired that tweet that I coated final week, adopted by quite a lot of different tweets:
Simply popping in to remind everybody that we did search earlier than it was cool.
BRB making it cool once more.

However we acquired much more – we now have a job itemizing for a Principal Product Supervisor, Yahoo Search. The job itemizing says, “We’re on the lookout for a Product Supervisor for Search at Yahoo. We’re on the lookout for people which might be concerned with pushing past the established order to alter the way in which people work together and use search.”
Jim Lanzone, who was the CEO of Ask.com and labored for a number of years for Ask.com (beforehand Ask Jeeves), who’s now the CEO at Yahoo. He’s a search man, initially, and I do suspect he’ll need to do huge issues once more with search. Below Jim, Ask launched some extremely modern options, like Ask 3D – which Google form of ripped off with its Common Search – as some say… So I believe, Yahoo Search, beneath Jim Lanzone is likely to be an attention-grabbing Yahoo Search to take a look at.
As I additionally stated on Search Engine Land, Brian Provost, SVP & GM, Yahoo posted on LinkedIn about this job itemizing and wrote, “There’s going to be a lot innovation in Search within the coming years and there aren’t many locations the place you may instantly have an effect this huge. Would love to listen to from you in case you have a ardour for Search and constructing product experiences.”
That is thrilling – I think it would take a yr or so to see something – however I’m trying ahead to it.
