Yahoo Image Search Now Shows Points of Interest

If you are a frequent traveler then you would appreciate this brand new feature of Yahoo image search that lets you refine your image search results by points of interest whenever you search for a particular travel destination or location.

For example, if you search for Rome, Yahoo Image search will automatically show up a special column containing categories of a whole bunch of ‘places’ from rome that you are likely to be interested in. Clicking on any of the categories will show an overlay of images so that you can virtually take a tour of the image results without leaving the original search results page.

To test it’s usefulness & accuracy, I searched for Kuala Lumpur, and Yahoo did manage to give me a pretty decent list of places that most tourists would like to go.

Try it and let me know what do you think about this cool new feature of Yahoo Image Search!

    It looks handful. I must confess that I don’t use yahoo search engine very often, instead I use Google. But this option looks nice. I wonder if Yahoo will still invest in their search engine in face of near close cooperation with Bing?

    Hi,

    Thank you for sharing this with me. I am very much into web design and seo.

    I originally did not come here looking for this, but when I found it, I was glad I did.

    I believe this feature can enhance search results for the end user, but google maps also show you the location of the address you put in and it even shows you the side streets in every angle.

    Anyways, great web design and information.

    Thanks alot

    Carrie

So, what do you think ?
