yahoo! vs. google is a very cool visualization tool to compare results. I think the addition of numbers or a bit of instruction would have been helpful, but once you get the concept, it’s sweet.
the two rows of dots represent websites in load order, left=#1. So you can easily spot divergence.
here you can see a search for “information architecture” in which a webmonkey index page on design topics is #1 at google, while Yahoo’s #1 is jesse’s IA resources page. However, I wonder how accurate this is, since when I do the search a second time on google straight, the #1 is argus, then the webmonkey tutorial on IA, while yahoo shows jjg then argus. Maybe slow on the updates?
Still cool visualization idea.
