Yahoo News Tests Trackbacks, Enhancements

    January 31, 2006

Yahoo News is gearing up to implement trackbacks.

When I blogged this last story using ecto, it automatically discovered this trackback URL. More details can be found on the Yahoo News Sandbox blog. In addition, they are also rolling out new personalization and keyword highlighting features. You can demo all the new goodies on this Yahoo News! Sandbox site.
