Music Search Wars: Yahoo! Goes for Music Video Search Supremacy

It’s no secret that music searches comprise a large number of searches on the web today. That’s why the music search wars have heated up in recent weeks with rumors and announcements surrounding efforts by Google, Facebook, and MySpace.

Yahoo! has been a player in music search for a long time, but now they’re amping up their game with music video search. They’re including a special section on the left sidebar to help you filter results.

This seems to only happen with artists and bands of a certain popularity. You can see the left sidebar filter for U2, Foo Fighters and Coldplay, but not for Paramore, Jet or The Swell Season. You get the left rail for Frank Sinatra but not Dean Martin.


The left rail contains albums and songs. Click on one to see videos related to your selection.
