Where 2.0, Yahoo Structured Tags

Where 2.0, Yahoo Structured Tags

Starts in about an hour. Demo’ing tonight. I may try and take some notes here, who knows if I’ll get a chance.

The big news right now is Yahoo’s Social Search. This is interesting on many levels, but stand out for me is

Structured tagging – The internet is about much more than web pages – key dimensions like time and location can be as important as the content itself. With user-provided structured tags like “geo:[location]” applied to pages, search results can now can include maps to locations in addition to the web page.

Yahoo supports geotagging! and other structured tags. [location] right now refers to text for search in yahoo maps, hopefully lat/long will be coming soon
