You can easily add reviews to sites on StumbleUpon.com by using a Yahoo Search Enhancement. I had never really used Yahoo Search Enhancements but they are pretty cool and I will be using more of them in the future. They are almost like Google Gadgets specifically related to web searches. Using Yahoo Search Enhancements does not require the installation of any software. The StumbleUpon search enhancement will provide the number of reviews, links to those reviews, a link to review the site, and a link to thumbs up the site. Use the directions below to install the Yahoo Search Enhancement and review a web site on StumbleUpon.com.
- Open Yahoo Search: Visit http://search.yahoo.com in a browser.
- Open Yahoo Search Preferences: Click the Options link to the right of the search box and select Preferences from the drop down menu.
- Sign In To Yahoo: If you are not already signed into Yahoo then click Sign In at the top right of the page. This will redirect you to the sign in page where you need to enter your username, password, and then click the Sign In button.
- Edit Enhanced Results: Click the Edit button next to Enhanced Results which will open the Enhanced Results configuration page. Even before making any changes click the Save button which will pop up a new window with more options. Click on the “Add more enhancements” button to open up the full Enhancements configuration page.
- Install StumbleUpon Enhancement: Now enter “StumbleUpon” in the search box below the Yahoo logo and click the Search button. This will being up a couple results with StumbleUpon being the top result. Click the Add button to install this Enhancement.
- Test The Ehancement: Now type in something in the Web Search box located at the top right of the screen followed by clicking the Web Search button. Your results will now have a small StumbleUpon information section below each one.
There are numerous other Yahoo Search Enhancements to install and play around with. Since they are new to me I will probably be posting about other ones in the near future.
Just click the links under any result to either review or thumbs up the site on StumbleUpon.
