While Google has made its Music search more subtle along with its Search Engine, Yahoo seems to do a better job with it. Taking a closer look I realized this was not at all surprising considering Yahoo Music, a beta product was being promoted with the search results.
The first thing that is striking is the way there are links to listen to music. Most of these links allowed me to listen toSongs throughRhapsody. There is also another link to listen to more songs. This leads you directly to theYahoo Musicpage. This is still in beta stage and I think later on Yahoo might push the service more aggressively.
Music are also something that is crucial to sell music and I could look up related videos of my search query. This looked a lot similar to howGoogle Searchdeals with music queries. I wonder who got inspired by whom.
Finally to the left there are related links to Wikipedia, VH1, Rhapsody and Last fm. This is whereYahoo Searchwill be looking to monetize this search feature with tie ups with Rhapsody. This enables the user tobuy music online.
