Are Yahoo! preparing to launch a blog search engine? Are they getting rid of blog entries from their news index? Is blog content rubbish? Are Yahoo taking a stand against blogs? Rumours are flying in the self-absorbed blogsphere about what, where, how, and why.
The answer is most likely:
“the Blogs beta had been â€œtemporarily taken offline to retool the offering. In an email sent a short while later, he added, â€œMaybe this goes without saying, (but) blog content remains an important part of our overall news and news search strategy. Itâ€™s worth mentioning again because Iâ€™ve read speculation in the blogosphere about what Y! might be thinking bigger picture when it comes to blog content.â€
So there you have it. There’s a new blog search offering from Yahoo in the pipeline.
