Yahoo integrating Delicious into search results

Internet, Yahoo

Just got word that Yahoo Search has started integrating information from into their search result pages. Yahoo aquired some years ago and I was wondering since then when they would start to combine the two online services to offer their visitors additional information.

If a site has been bookmarked at Delicious it is shown in the Yahoo Search Results pages. The number of users who have bookmarked it as well as the main tags that have been used to bookmark it are shown. A click on the number of users who bookmarked a link using Delicious leads to the bookmark at Delicious while a click on any of the tags mentioned opens the tag listing at Delicious which does not necessarily mean that the website is listed on that website.

I think that this is a nice idea to integrate Delicious into Yahoo. It could give users confidence that the website that they are going to visit has been useful for other users because of the bookmarks at Delicious. I would not like to see a integration of the amount of bookmarks in the search results because it is not a huge problem to get hundreds of bookmarks at Delicious for a small amount of money.

The cheapest offer that I was able to find was to pay $5 for 50 bookmarks at Delicious. Yahoo should take this into consideration.
