Yahoo Search Suggestions for MySQL

 | August 16, 2007 |  Posted In: Events and Announcements


I noticed today if you go to Yahoo.com and type MySQL to Search field it gives you suggestions for MySQL, which are:

* loading javascript arrays with mysql data
* mysql performance blog
* mysql download
* mysql administrator download
* mysql front download

It may not be best search suggestions but it is cool to see our blog name to make it in the top of the list.
Too bad few Geeks use Yahoo for search so most of our search engine traffic comes from Google.

  • I find that Yahoo Search is better then Google with this feature. It’s super fast and I know I’m typing the correct phrase that will give a good result because others have done the same 🙂

  • Could be. But it is matter of habit most of the time – if you got use to Google (which is default in FireFox among other things) you may not go to something else unless you have hard time finding stuff with Google.

    There could be other reasons but anyway I find web sites with tech material gets most of the traffic from Google

  • This is not in the search results for mysql but in search suggestions.
    Enter MySQL but do not press enter.

    Or may be it is gone now – I do not know how dynamic these are.
