    what is Y!Q

    so I got an email from Yahoo! promoting its Y!Q Beta program. Why in the world would anyone implement Y!Q on their website for free?
    Links? I don't need no stinkin' links.

    # Y!Q lets you search from any web page you're on so you don't have to interrupt your workflow to find more information. Traditional web searches force you to go to a specific search page and type in a query.
    # A regular web search only uses your search term or "query" to find what you're looking for. Y!Q uses both your query and information you highlight on a webpage to determine the "context" of your search. Using this "context," Y!Q provides exactly the type of information you're looking for. A traditional search does not utilize context and isn't a contextual search.

    I got the email too, if it weren't ad-laden it would be an interesting extension to sites like wikipedia I think.
    GamesLib.com - the slickest, most complete and
    easily navigatible flash games site on the web.

    i will be employing this on my site to test the technology as this reflects what will be used in Yahoo!'s new advertising service for publishers. i believe its a great way to get the feel for the technology Yahoo! will be bring to the table. there is a downside which i hope is not included in their ad service, we have to specify what content is used in the search which is a pain compared to adsense's techonlogy where a bot does all the work. a bonus though is control over the results. we will have to see how much is added before the exiting of beta.

    You can see an example of Y!Q at http://yq.search.yahoo.com/publisher/news.html
    It seems interesting, but unfortunatelly we can't use it and adsense on the same pages.

    I can't imagine why anyone would do this for free.
