The local arm of Internet navigational organisation Yahoo! has launched a new version of its To-Go service, expanding it to include search, news and finance information.
The To-Go service allows Web publishers to add a Yahoo! button to their pages and thereby provide customer access to the Yahoo! site and specialised search engines -- all for free.
The new tools allow Web designers to customise the area of interest on the site. News Search allows for a keyword to be entered into the search form and Yahoo! then provides the pre-programmed button which can be copied and pasted into any HTML page. Then when the button is selected on the Web page, a search is automatically started to locate the latest news surrounding the keyword.
The Finance Search operates in a similar way, with a Web designer entering an Australian Stock Exchange stock ticker. Stock prices, company profile and financial news articles can be retrieved by clicking on the button.
