Yahoo offers personal search

Yahoo launched a new service designed to let users of its search engine save and manage their query results for accessing later and sharing with others, the company said Tuesday.

The service, which is still in beta mode, is called My Yahoo Search and is available to registered Yahoo users at http://next.yahoo.com.

My Yahoo Search lets users save search results, annotate them and categorize them; block Yahoo from returning specific results the user may deem irrelevant, and share saved results with other users.

Competitor Ask Jeeves launched a similar service in September.
