Features & Functionality

FELICE SCHMERTZLER (2012): »Yahoo also provides the “latest in images” similar to Bing. However, there are a few differences: To access Yahoo’s “latest in images”, you must click on the “Image Search” button without having searched anything. Then the images are split up by categories including: sports, music, movies, politics, fashion, etc. Again, this can be helpful in finding current images quickly as well as generally staying involved in what is popular. However, most users will continue to input a specific search query and hope for good results. Using “Biotechnology” as our test query, Yahoo provides an initial page with a set number of results and a button at the bottom that is labeled “Show More Images.” Yahoo’s approach– Yahoo takes a different approach to image search than Google and Bing. Yahoo focuses on High Quality (HQ) images in its search. Every search will appear with the first two rows of results being HQ images and the first images will say something along the lines of “999+ High Quality Images.” If you click on this first photo, you will be redirected to a slide show of the high quality images. Ads– Lastly, Yahoo also has Ads at the top of the image search. There will generally be a thin strip of about three ads lining the top of the page. Ads generally are related to the search. For example, searching “biotechnology” provides ads such as “what is biotechnology” on ask.com, “human genome sciences” on goldmansachs.com and “biotech summits/events” on opalevents.org. As ads generally are, these are more of an inconvenient distraction then a benefit.« Source
