Final week I reported that Yahoo Search posted on Twitter that it will likely be making search cool once more. As I posted on Search Engine Land yesterday, we acquired extra proof that Yahoo is actually shifting ahead with enhancing its search service.
Final evening, Jim Lanzone, the CEO of Yahoo (extra about him beneath), responded to Greg Sterling and myself about Yahoo moving into search:
Greg, I feel you and Barry know – there are at all times new methods across the mountain. No cause to go straight at it. However we’re excited to begin exploring once more…and might be affected person figuring all of it out.

So sure, we acquired that tweet that I lined final week, adopted by plenty of different tweets:
Simply popping in to remind everybody that we did search earlier than it was cool.
BRB making it cool once more.

However we acquired much more – we have now a job itemizing for a Principal Product Supervisor, Yahoo Search. The job itemizing says, “We’re searching for a Product Supervisor for Search at Yahoo. We’re searching for people which might be excited about pushing past the established order to alter the best way people work together and use search.”
Jim Lanzone, who was the CEO of Ask.com and labored for a number of years for Ask.com (beforehand Ask Jeeves), who’s now the CEO at Yahoo. He’s a search man, initially, and I do suspect he’ll wish to do massive issues once more with search. Beneath Jim, Ask launched some extremely revolutionary options, like Ask 3D – which Google form of ripped off with its Common Search – as some say… So I feel, Yahoo Search, beneath Jim Lanzone could be an fascinating Yahoo Search to have a look at.
As I additionally stated on Search Engine Land, Brian Provost, SVP & GM, Yahoo posted on LinkedIn about this job itemizing and wrote, “There’s going to be a lot innovation in Search within the coming years and there aren’t many locations the place you may instantly have an effect this massive. Would love to listen to from you you probably have a ardour for Search and constructing product experiences.”
That is thrilling – I believe it would take a 12 months or so to see something – however I’m wanting ahead to it.
