Y!Q on SearchBlog

Yahoo! has a new live search function called Y!Q that lets site owners embed marked links into sections of web pages. Users clicking the links get a small popup box with top contextualized results. Because blogs etc. deal with multiple topics per page, Y!Q lets you cordon off sections with DIV classes which interact with a JavaScript library. If you use a publishing system like Movable Type, it’s a simple matter of surrounding the summary insertion code with appropriate Y!Q tags and rebuilding. Pretty nifty, though it does add a bit of weight to pages.

Implemented Y!Q for John Battelle’s SearchBlog today.
