Yahoo has had Search Shortcuts for a while now. Prefix your search by “!” and you could take a shortcut to your favorite Yahoo content.

They’ve decided to open up Shortcuts so that searchers can create their own favorite custom keywords. To get you started, Yahoo has created some new custom shortcuts for you.

* Navigation example, type: !my to navigate to “”
* Common Searches example, type: !wsf to search “weather san francisco” on Yahoo!
* Search example, type: !wiki rozier to search for “rozier” on Wikipedia
* Application example, type: !mail to compose a Y! Mail to “”

  • Such services are definitely very nice but how many users are that sophisticated really?
