My Web 2.0 BETA

source: Jim Ley revews it here
Yahoo seem to have released a new product, "My Web 2.0″, it has to be a BETA of course like all web 2.0 things, it's got tagging, it's got one of those things with different sized words that you know is just cool as anything - completely useless, but it looks cool right. There's every other buzzword compliant thing you could find, but I couldn't actually spot any AJAX going on, I'm sure it's there somewhere. (Oh there's no background colour either of course, that was so Web 1.0)
Not doing any studies of it intially and thinking it was something that it probably was not, I did a search for some things and kept comming up with nothing. So i guess you, or the community must put stuff in there first, err not unlike deli.cio.us.  I don't know, need to give it a moments study.
But then i got to thinking ... and came up with a ... why not make a search engine that works the way i was expecting the yahoo beta to work.  Why not allow tagging right on any search result page not just of people's shared bookmarks ?  You know, the way we allow pretty much anybody to tag here at fastblogit right in the plane of the room.  Me thinks that would be a grand way to improve search results. After all the statagy of ranking by number of inbound hyperlinks is rapidly becoming extinct; what with all of the spamming.  I wonder if any major search engine would ever have the guts to try that.

I mean why can't it be just as easy as the instructions for bookmarking in Google's bookmark beta:
source:  google bookmarking beta
When browsing your Search History, just click the star next to one of the search results listed to create a bookmark for that website. Once you've starred a site, you can click the "Edit" link to add labels and notes for the site.
Except of course the part about "browsing the search history" ... I'm talking about browsing any search result page.  And the tagging could be a pop up window so that you don't loose focus. 

Incidentally, in case you haven't tried a service like fbi, bookmarking isolated from the process of blogging is as stale as yesterday's french fries.  Why separate the two?  Why go here for this and there for that.  Keep all of your effects in one place.  You get just as good indexing (me thinks better) on your bookmarks as you get at del.icio.us, and you don't have that severe restriction on the amount of annotation that you can leave plus other's can comment on your bookmarks and annotations.  If you want to visit the larger pool of bookmaks, the del.icio.us common pool and more is just a click away.
