Yahoo Search Gives Users Geographically Relevant Suggestions

SMS Text

Yahoo Search blog announced today that it is introducing a new Search Assist that is enhanced with the ability to provide users with geographically-closer suggestions as you are typing. This new feature is suppose to help searchers save a little time while typing their query because Search Assist will take into account the location you are searching from.

The office where I work is located in the Citrus Park/Carrollwood area of Tampa, Florida so I begun conducting a search of the closest mall – Citrus Park Town Center. I typed out “citrus p” and the first two results were for the place I was seeking; three out of the five results listed had something to do with my query.

This enhancement seems like it will be pretty useful and will definitely shed some seconds off of your search time. Getting back even just a few seconds of our lives here and there could be pretty beneficial to most of us in the long run.
