Meal-Based Food Searches, Coming To A Yahoo SERP Near You
The Yahoo search engine would index pictures of foods based on alt tags and sets of meta data that describe how the dish would taste (i.e. spiciness, sweetness, etc.) and its nutritional content, and serve users results based on their search criteria. If a user picked a particular dish, the meal search feature could also suggest alternatives, side dishes, and possibly even restaurants where they could find it. Other results could include grocery stores to get the ingredients to make the dish and recipes.
