Yahoo!: “We have issues. Our new search feature proves it!”

Yahoo! Search Direct fail

Yesterday Yahoo! unveiled “Search Direct,” their version of Google Instant. Search Direct works like Google Instant, as soon as you start typing your query into the search box, search results will begin to populate based on algorithms that also factor in what other users have looked for using the same word(s). The idea is to speed up the user’s search by reducing the total number of keystrokes by assisting them complete their search entry. But what happens when the most popular search phrases are not the most glamorous? It exposes them to the masses. Sorry Yahoo!
