Yahoo partners with Yelp to fight Google.

 

Searching on Yahoo will now deliver local business reviews from Yelp, through a partnership that could help Yahoo search compete against Google, or at the least make it more useful.

Yahoo said Wednesday that it had partnered with Yelp, as part of its efforts to offer a richer experience to its users. Financial terms of the partnership are not disclosed.

The announcement confirms rumors surrounding Yahoo’s curiosity about Yelp to improve its local search results. Yahoo’s revenue has sagged in recent quarters, and an enhanced version of search could help generate more ad sales.

Yahoo’s search partnership with Yelp will integrate results from the Yelp app.

The integration with Yelp is a content partnership, a Yahoo spokeswoman said. Yelp user reviews, business information, star ratings and photos will be in the right-hand panel as part of the changes. The listings will appear in the results for Yahoo search as well as within Yahoo maps, for desktop, smartphone and tablet users in the U. S.

Links to directions within Yahoo maps, business hours and menus also can be found in Yahoo’s local search results.

The integration does not appear yet to generate Yelp’s listings for each business in Yelp, though additional listings will be added in the coming months, Yahoo said.

Yelp has exploded to become a popular service, but whether it will help Yahoo simply take market share away from Google is a tall order. Google has provided a range of similar information about local businesses through its search results for some time now.

The Yelp partnership comes as Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer seeks to make other improvements in search. Mayer recently said that “contextual search, ” particularly on mobile phones, would be a focus going forward. Contextual search, she said, could provide people with more personalized content by detecting signals from their environments.

On mobile devices, Yahoo’s app already incorporates the user’s location to display more relevant search engine results such as restaurants and movie times.

Bing pwnage!

#1 on bing X3

Yes.. Im the top of Bing.com 3x over LOL!

Update: The news just keeps getting better:  Microsoft will now force you to use bing.com with all new pcs that include windows 8.1 AND if you dont buy a new pc, you WILL use bing.com anyway via windows update.

A fresh build of Windows 8. 1 update has leaked but unlike the previous leaks, the phrase ‘with Bing’ is included with the build that is a deviation from past releases. The leak originates from a partner build of Connected Core that has been leaked in both x86 and x64 flavors; the build number for this leak is 17024 whereas the last Windows 8. 1 update leak had a build number of 17025.

The interesting thing relating to this leak is the ‘with Bing’ attribute as this has maybe not been seen in previous leaks of the update 1 for Windows 8. 1 )

It’s not surprise that Windows 8 (in all variants) ships with Bing built in as the apps and search are now part of the OOBE. But this build specifically calls out Bing in the terms and service agreements as well as within the watermark in the bottom right corner.

There are hints to the fact this build is supposed for partners and might perhaps not be released as a general public build. What could this mean? Well, Microsoft could have still another install of Windows 8. 1 that doesn’t have Bing as built in as deeply as the vanilla flavor of Windows 8. 1 Update – While this could seem odd, it could reflect the EU’s relationship with taxing Microsoft for baking in its own services deeply into the OS.

Obviously, it would seem much more likely, if the above were true, that the build would be called ‘with Internet Explorer’ as that’s where Microsoft got dinged last time around, but for now, it’s only a simplified observation and not a statement of fact.

Windows 8. 1 update 1 is anticipated to arrive in April and will also be distributed via Windows update, rather than through the Windows Store. Many expect that Microsoft will announce Windows 8. 1 update 1 at its BUILD conference that takes place the very first week of April.

The distribution through Windows update generally seems to make a bit more sense than the Windows Store as there are no actual major features being introduced only minor tweaks across the board. Unlike the 8. 1 update that brought back the Start button, to the layman user, they may perhaps not notice many of the new features at first since many of them are quite subtle.

With about 5 weeks until the conference kicks off, we do not have to wait too much longer to learn more about the update for Windows 8. 1.

Tied for first place on Yelp.com

So Im tied for first place on Yelp.com. My competitor has 21 reviews all 5 star as I do. I can remember back about 3 months ago when he was #1 with all 5 star ratings and 21 reviews, and I had about 7 reviews all 5 star, and I set a goal to pass him, and get the top spot. Should be just about another day or two before the top spot is all MINE ;) YIPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
