Yahoo to Answer Google on Blog Search

Stephen Baker over at Business Week’s Blogspotting reports:

Look for Yahoo! to unveil a response to Google’s blog search early next week.
This from Bradley Horowitz, director of tech development in the
company’s search group. He wouldn’t provide details in advance.

It will be interesting to see how the two products compare — will Yahoo try to be more comprehensive?  Will they have a wider range of options?  Google’s product doesn’t eliminate the need for more specialized services like PubSub, Technorati or BlogPulse, and I doubt that Yahoo will have the same specialized features these players (and others like my own CustomScoop) have.  But Yahoo’s entry will likely trigger a battle with Google that will make both services better (as their general search contest has).
