Yahoo! adds 'Web Rank' to Toolbar

GG replies to some members questions about local search.

At the end of his message, he alludes to a new feature of the Yahoo! toolbar, which displays a link popularity measurement called Web Rank, with rankings ranging from 1 to 10. Sound familiar?

I was wondering when you would show up to spread your rays of sunshine, SyntheticUpper. ;) dmz17, the information can come from either or both. Seeing an address in yellow pages and then verifying it by seeing it on the web can be a good way to gain more confidence in the data. Chndru, many thanks for mentioning the broken link. I emailed the geo team about it and pointed them to this thread so that they could read the feedback if they weren't already. 258cib, I think you've got the right attitude in message 72. The title of this thread not withstanding, Local Search is still in beta, but we're looking forward to improving the ability for people to find stuff near them. GodLikeLotus, I don't think the web pages need to be hosted in the U.S. but after the geo folks have a chance to read this thread, I'll ask them. Good point, Robert Charlton. I know that you and nyehouse have been thinking about local for a long time--I can tell it from your posts. peteboyd, I don't think we've talked about which YP sources we're using, or at least not yet.

That's at least a pass to answer questions (the FAQ answers a few more). My parents are in town and I'm (gasp) taking a day off today, but I'll check WebmasterWorld again tonight. By that time, people will have noticed that Yahoo just added a graphical little bar to Yahoo's toolbar that shows a rank as you surf around the web and folks will be eagerly dissecting and debating it, I'm sure. :)
