This week’s interview is with Dr. Larry Cornett, the VP of the Yahoo Search consumer products division. Our discussion focused on SearchMonkey, Yahoo’s new effort to remap the user experience in search.
We talked in particular about Yahoo’s recent announcement that certain SearchMonkey applications have been defaulted to on for all search users. Personally, I think that this is big news, as it is a bold step in the direction of giving individual publishers a great deal of control over their listings in the search results.
Check the interview out, and then come back here to talk about it.
