Yahoo SearchMonkey allows developers to control the content of their listings, incorporate images and embed live links. The tool is based on open source technology and is free.
“We know our users want more than just a list of links from their search experience, so Yahoo! has developed a revolutionary new product that makes this possible," said Jeffrey Revoy, vice president of search and social media for Yahoo Europe in a statement.
“For Yahoo!, SearchMonkey is part of our broader strategy to enable the most relevant content and services so we become the starting point for the most consumers on the Internet," he added.
Yahoo users will be able to start using the service in the coming weeks.
