The Big 3 Search Engines Join Forces

Quick note on an interesting development: Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! are collaborating on a universal sitemaps protocol. All three companies are blogging about this extensively. Google: Google Webmaster Central Blog, Official Google Blog. Microsoft: Live Search's WebLog. Yahoo: Yahoo! Search blog, Yodel Anecdotal.

The news is spreading quickly in the blogosphere: TailRank, TechCrunch, Threadwatch.

Sitebases, the next protocol after Sitemaps
It can save the time and press for the search engine, also for the websites.
It can bring new search engine that named Search Engine 2.0.
Using Sitebases protocol, will save 95% bandwidth above. It is another sample for long tail theory.
In this protocol, I suggested that all search engine can share their Big Sitebases each other, so the webmaster just need to submit their Sitebases to one Search Engine.
And I suggested that all search engines can open their search API for free and unlimited using.
