Yahoo announced today it redesigned Yahoo! Image and Video search results pages to include the most popular trending topics that people are searching for.
These new pages are no longer bland and boring, and now shows up to five pages of topics that are trending in search. One really cool feature it added is the ability to turn on the auto-scroll feature so you don’t have to scroll through the pages manually.
Yahoo said it has already seen double digit percentage increases in engagement for both image and video search since it launched the new home pages, and a 60% increase in time spent on the image search home page.
Here are screen shots of the new look taken from the YSearch Blog:
This is great news for anyone who blogs about current events and performs SEO tactics on images to acquire a new and increased source of traffic to their websites.
