Yahoo! launches Mindset

Yahoo! Mindset is a recently launched search tool from Yahoo! which allows you to customize your search experience to add bias toward comercial or research type resources.

When Google update florida occured about a year and a half ago some people viewed it as a way to bias the results to non commercial or informational type listings. If search engines can train users to use the search resuls for information and ads for commercial sites then that could do a large bit to change the face of SEO.

Combine that idea with:

  • most searches being unique

  • the longer and more unique queries typically have higher conversion rates
  • giving away information builds credibility (in linkage data, consumer trust, & karma)
  • building communities builds an abundance of content

and you can see why / how people without much money can compete with large evil megacorps by building up from the bottom and working their way toward the middle.

I may be beta testing a new SEO tool this week. Trying it out will be free. More on that later :)
