Updated Yahoo! Search Limiting Parameters

In an updated Yahoo! Search Review at Search Engine Showdown News, I discovered some interesting search prefixes that you can use. Some of these I was not aware of at all and they do not seem to be in the Yahoo list on their main site. They appear to be using old Inktomi prefixes.

New found prefixes include stem:, domain:, feature:homepage, feature:index, feature:meta, and the region: limiters.

The feature:x is very useful in some instances. For example, feature:index will return only index pages of a website. There are other feature: limiters for activex, applet and flash also.

If you are worried about ActiveX security issues, I suppose you can always search at Yahoo with the -feature:activex as a limiter and not worry about such things. But considering that Yahoo's Search Index is a little bit dated ... do not count on it.

I almost but forgot about Greg's site. Have had it sitting in my reader all this time and he has been quiet since April. Then out of the blue he posts this update.

I took a double-take when I clicked on it because his site went thru a redesign and I did not recognize it. Actually I do not remember what it used to look like. My memory is short these days.
