New MSN Search “Fast Answer” Offers Results from MSN Shopping on Web Results Pages

MSN Search has added a new “fast answer” feature that provides results direct from MSN Shopping at the top of web search results pages.

To trigger these results, search for a product category or the brand name and the product category. For example, this search for Nikon Digital Camera offers a direct answer from MSN Shopping with direct links to product pages for the top three results. This “fast answer” also shows user ratings, megapixel info, and pricing data.

Here’s another example search, this time a search for Sony Televisions.

Google, Yahoo, and Ask Jeeves also provide direct results from their shopping databases at the top of web results pages if the query is shopping/product based and/or uses the correct trigger terms.

More MSN Search “Fast Answers” are listed here.
