New Yahoo MyWeb 2.0 & MyRank

Chris covers the new MyWeb 2.0 service from Yahoo today, Yahoo Integrates Personal & Social Search with MyWeb 2.0, in SearchDay. In short, you've now got the ability to tag search results, share them with friend and most important, help compile a collection of "trusted" sites. Yahoo even talks about a new MyRank ranking system for when you want to sort through this collection. Comments, thoughts!

At WebmasterWorld Conference last week, the folks ask Tim Mayer from Yahoo if they would use the data of "trusted" sites (saved sites) and "untrusted" sites (blocked sites) in the algo.

He said, if he said yes, you will all go out and start blocking your competitors sites. He said, it is something they will look at, but he doesn't know yet - they did not yet look at the data. Or something like that.

Isn't there will always be the good and the bad side of it? Now the next question is...how much does the good outweighs the bad or vice-versa?

It did not take long for Yahoo to trump Google's personalized search innitiative announcement yesterday.
As Beal suggested in his blog earlier today the news is coming at a faster pace than anyone can seriously digest--except Danny S. of course!

One takaway from all this personal search news is people better get aquainted with Furl, Del.icio.us, Spurl, Technorati, Bloglines, Feedster etc..

Tagging where appropriate is approaching full-on buzz mode!

I don't like it at all, not even one little bit.

I've used MyWeb since 5 minutes after it first came out, and save pages because it's been a handy time-saver. I've loved it. I have FOLDERS to categorize so I can find things easily.

No more; either I can switch back to pre-2.0 or I'm done with it. There is NO WAY I'll be able to remember all the different "labels" I'd use, it would no longer be possible to find my categories - which is exactly why I don't use Gmail.

OK, so this is what happened... when upgrading, the default got changed. I've changed the setting back to what constitutes "private" as the default, not shared, and it's back to using the folders again.

I've loved this and it's been totally handy, I've used it on a daily basis. But I've no intention of sharing what I save with my main ISP account (Yahoo/SBC is my provider), and besides, I'm sure not about to publicly share the folder with my little collection of "spam" pages that I find - with all my comments and notes.

Too many levels to go through. I prefer Furl for my bookmarklet saves. Spurl next and Del.icio.us third.
Yahoo and Google don't quite get it yet on social bookmarking IMO.

Looks like Yahoo removed the self tagging box when you do the Import via RSS.

Has anyone noticed that Yahoo is producing more Google type results with their new algorithm?
