Yahoo! is expanding the number of SearchMonkey features set to default-on in their search results. The update is the result of the completion of testing microformat templates.
Now, sites that provide structured data according to Yahoo!'s specified formats will automatically get SearchMonkey default-on status, allowing an enhanced result to be displayed in the SERPs.
Enhancements can include:
- Local Businesses
- News items
Yahoo! is also turning on SearchMonkey defaults for Entertainment and Social Networking sites. Look for enhanced results from sites such as Netflix, IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes, Friendster and Britannica.
