Live Search Displays Paragraph Under Wikipedia Results

Microsoft’s Live Search is now displaying a portion of the first paragraph from Wikipedia results. On the Live Search Blog, Program Manager Kemp Peterson wrote, “We realize that often you just need to get a sense of what your query is about. Wikipedia is great for that — you can learn enough from the first paragraph of a Wikipedia article to start you out on the right path.”

Wikipedia’s traffic has grown 8,000% in the past 5 years due largely to search referrals.
