[ Search]

AlltheWeb almost became one of the world’s most popular search engines a few years ago but was quickly forgotten during Google’s meteoric rise.

In 2003, it was bought by Overture. Around the same time, Overture acquired AltaVista and Yahoo acquired Overture.

Yahoo used AlltheWeb and AltaVista for experimentation, eventually allowing the brands to fade to obscurity. Wednesday, Yahoo released AlltheWeb LiveSearch , a tool that automatically generates a dropdown menu showing keywords and phrases that might match the query as it is being typed.

Results are displayed as the user types the query, defaulting to the nearest match for the words as they are entered. It also offers users related queries, spelling suggestions and keyboard shortcuts that can be set by individual users.

SEOs can use LiveSearch as a keyword suggestion tool and as an indicator of other terms that might relate to targeted keyword phrases on client campaigns.
