Yahoo! introduced “Gule Page”, a new type of search results offered to Yahoo search users in India, which combine traditional search results with a wealth of other related information. Traditional search results appear in a strip on the left side of the page, while other modules appear that spotlight sponsored links, recipes, medical information, Wikipedia entries, stock charts, Flickr images, train schedules, restaurant lists, news, and even Google blog search results.

Instead of the usual text listing, some queries – like asparagus, blog, einstein or asthma – will now trigger a comprehensive and very visual result page. This page contains different elements laid out in boxes; there’s “normal” search results, encyclopedic information from health sites or Wikipedia, news results, YouTube videos or Google blog search results

[…]Last is the idea of vertical search, in which search results are tailored for a specific domain such as health. Vertical search sites aren't as plentiful in India than in the United States, spokeswoman Kathryn Kelly said, so Glue Pages can provide a more tailored entry point to the Internet.[…]
