Y!Q

Yahoo just released it's Y!Q, a "contextual search technology that analyzes the contents of the Web page you're viewing and then gives you a list of search results directly related to what you're reading." offering in a direct faceoff with Google's Intelligent Context Sensitive Search. Yahoo's Y!Q seems to be way more efficient in it's context sensitive search results than Google's.
Jeremy Zawodny who runs a blog on Yahoo Search quotes "The fundamental idea was to supplement search queries with context. So instead of having to spend a lot of time searching and assembling all the information you're after, this contextual search technology could incorporate that context (the stuff you were reading at you moment you decided that you wanted to know more) to find the most relevant results."
Reiner Kraft is the brains behind Y!Q. Reiner had published a whitepaper in the recent past on "Mining Anchor Text for Query Refinement", that seems extremely related to the logistics behind the Y!Q magic. Y!Q does some text extraction from a website, and it then runs a search against Yahoo's DB using the keywords that were extracted. Y!Q Challenge in ON !!. I myself intend to use this Challenge and customize it so that contextual text from my blog could alternatively return intelligent search results from Yahoo. Lets see how this works. I already started my efforts into integrating it in my blog and other websites that I run, And hopefully this Y!Q magic works. I shall also be awaiting Googles response to this Yahoo Offering. The WWW is getting to be a way more interesting place to be in than what I originally envisioned. Cheers Yahoo !!!
