(First posted 8/27 2:05 a.m. EDT) - Steve Rubel over at Mico Persuasion is reporting that Yahoo! has ended its blog search, however larger blogs like the Huffington Post are still showing up in the News index (smaller blogs aren't). He is speculating that this is pretty much a temporary thing as Yahoo! is probably going to roll out "an integrated feed reader/search engine the way Ask.com/Bloglines did in June."
Steve's very on top of things in the blog world, I've found it a rare occasion when he wasn't right on target with what is going on with the Blogosphere. Kudos to Steve for this find!
Lee Oden commented on Matt's blog that:
Greg Jarboe says he called into Yahoo News and received this response:
“Brian Nelson, a Yahoo spokesperson, called me back to say the Blogs beta had been 'temporarily taken offline to retool the offering.'”
update2 (8/28): Jeremy Zawodny commented on Om Malik's GigaOm Blog -verify that they have in fact killed it. "I suggested we blog about it, but sadly it didn't happen," commented Zawodny.
