If you remember, Yahoo! launched SearchMonkey last year to allow customization of search results. Yahoo! has already set Yelp, LinkedIn, and Yahoo! Local SearchMonkey apps as default, as well as Citysearch and Zagat.

Users can also check out the Yahoo! SearchMonkey Gallery to select other apps they'd like to see in their searches.
