Citysearch had popularized the concept of “best of” and even named their product “best of” … even using the URL “http://bestof.citysearch.com” before moving it to “http://best.citysearch.com” … I wonder when MSN’s planned launch will happen?
Yahoo’s implementation is almost exactly the same as Citysearch’s, including the geographies/categories, a few UI implementations (i.e. vote button on search grid), etc…but, overall, I think Yahoo’s implementation is defintely an improvement. For example, I like their vote page better, the fact that they could have a larger set of users submitting to improve trustworthiness, etc.
How long until we see those “Best of Yahoo” window stickers?
