Yahoo Search Engine Getting A Redesign
Ryan Martin / 3 years ago
Since Marissa Mayer took over as the Yahoo CEO it has seen some dramatic changes. These started with restructuring, followed by a push into the mobile market and recently they pushed past the milestone of having acquired 10 companies under her leadership. This has also been paired with a return to profit despite all these acquisitions.
With changing fortunes comes a changing search engine design and while Yahoo is dwarfed by the likes of Google and Bing, it is still a big search engine. Yahoo have been working on a new design for their search engine, which you can see below but it currently doesn’t show up on Google Chrome or Safari.
You can see the newly designed search engine page in the above image as shown by SearchEngineLand. The updated search page relocates search types (web, images, video. etc) to the sidebar rather than leaving it at the top. There is also a new navigation menu at the top linking to other Yahoo services including the recently acquired Flickr service.
The related searches and also try features have both been removed and the URL of each search result have been re-positioned to be under the title in “Google style”.
