Yahoo Testing A Google Knowledge Graph Lookalike In Search Results
One of Yahoo’s latest search results tests should look awfully familiar.
The website All Google Testing discovered a test that turns the right column of Yahoo’s search results page into a dead ringer for Google’s Knowledge Graph.
The post even offers some instructions on how to enable the test in your own browser, but I wasn’t able to get it working myself last night. Thankfully, this video shows the test in action.
Each of the tech company examples included in the video has a section on Yahoo called “Top Products” — that’s different from Google when I look at the real Knowledge Graph results for those companies.
It reminds me of Yahoo’s recent rollout of local business snapshots in its right column — a user interface change that also looks a lot like Google.
