Yahoo! Inc., announced on Sunday, June 19, 2005, the beta launch of Yahoo! Search Subscriptions, a service that enables users to search multiple online subscription content sources and the Web from a single search box.
Subscription content includes:-
- The Wall Street Journal Online (30 days)
- The New England Journal of Medicine
- Forrester Research Inc.
- Financial Times (60 days)
The search service includes millions of access-restricted Web sites containing content that search engines typically cannot access. It is initially only available in the U.S. and the UK.
In the past, digging research information from subscribed sources is a tedious job as users need to search several sites across the Internet to perform a comprehensive search. Now with Yahoo! Search Subscriptions, users can find information from some of the largest, most popular consumer, research and business publishers through a single integrated search experience through Yahoo! Search.
“Yahoo! Search Subscriptions benefits our online subscribers by providing a direct channel to our world leading business, financial, geopolitical news and analysis content through a world renowned search engine,” said Alex Withers, Director of FT.com, Americas. “Partnering with Yahoo! makes perfect sense for publishers looking to provide users with a more well rounded search experience.”
To use Yahoo! Search Subscriptions, users can select from a list of subscription content sources. When a search is conducted, their subscription content appears in their Web results, and is displayed as a separate module above the standard search results. If users choose to integrate this experience in future Web searches, they can permanently add the list of subscriptions they want to search via the Yahoo! Search preferences page. In addition, users can restrict searches to specific participating content sources by going to http://search.yahoo.com/subscriptions. To view subscription content, users must be a subscriber of the publisher’s Web site.
Though users still need to be a subcriber, I think Yahoo! Search Subscriptions provides a one stop center for all kinds of useful information. This is certainly will be a helpful search service to researcher, thesis writter (like me :D ) ,those who reads financial reports, etc etc.
