Yahoo Kills Blog Search?

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 “temporarily taken offline to retool the offering. In an email sent a short while later, he added, “Maybe this goes without saying, (but) blog content remains an important part of our overall news and news search strategy. It’s worth mentioning again because I’ve read speculation in the blogosphere about what Y! might be thinking bigger picture when it comes to blog content.”

So there you have it. There’s a new blog search offering from Yahoo in the pipeline.
