MSN Adds Direct Answers With Sports Info

by , Comments

MSN Search is now providing "direct answers" at the top of web results pages with scores, brief bios, stats for baseball and basketball teams and players.

No words as to when direct answers for other sports will become available.

AOL Search, Ask Jeeves, and Yahoo also offer snapshots/shortcuts/smart answers with current sports stats, scores, and info.

Here are a few examples from MSN:

New York Yankees

Shaq Height

Baseball

Vicente Padilla

More about direct answers from MSN here and from other engines here. We've also posted about Google's Q&A service.

Postscript: MSN provides more details about the new sports answers here: More on Sports Instant Answers and direct answers it provides in general here: Getting Answers.
