Closing week I reported that Yahoo Search posted on Twitter that this could furthermore just furthermore be making search frosty again. As I posted on Search Engine Land the day earlier than on the brand new time, we purchased more evidence that Yahoo is occasionally transferring ahead with bettering its search carrier.
Closing evening, Jim Lanzone, the CEO of Yahoo (more about him under), spoke back to Greg Obedient and myself about Yahoo entering into search:

But we purchased loads more – we beget a job checklist for a Predominant Product Manager, Yahoo Search. The job checklist says, “We’re searching for a Product Manager for Search at Yahoo.

Jim Lanzone, who was as soon as the CEO of Assign a query to.com and labored for a total lot of years for Assign a query to.com (previously Assign a query to Jeeves), who’s now the CEO at Yahoo. He’s a search guy, first and most predominant, and I place suspect he’ll are seeking to place fine issues again with search. Under Jim, Assign a query to launched some extremely progressive facets, worship Assign a query to 3D – which Google roughly ripped off with its Universal Search – as some say… So I savor, Yahoo Search, under Jim Lanzone could be a appealing Yahoo Search to seek at.
As I furthermore said on Search Engine Land, Brian Provost, SVP & GM, Yahoo posted on LinkedIn about this job checklist and wrote, “There’s going to be so mighty innovation in Search in the arrival years and there aren’t many places the build you can straight beget an affect this fine. Would intention shut to hear from you whenever you may furthermore just beget a passion for Search and building product experiences.”
