The link which is shown as just “wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails” actually goes to “http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/Plugins”. That’s a big difference and one I care about.
Anybody else having this problem?
Update June 4th: The problem seems to be resolved. Or maybe they are just doing some testing.
That's what Yahoo! search now does for Wikipedia.
Search for Switzerland and you'll get this:
This result directly links to the subsections "History", "Politics" and "Direct democracy" of the Switzerland article. Now don't ask me what's the algorithm for selecting the subsections, but it's a pretty cool feature.
This is similar to the Google feature where Google will sometimes provide deep links into the site. I never use Google, so the only example I know is when you search for Stanford:
Those links Admission, etc. link to other pages on the Stanford Web sites. That's an intelligent idea as well. Though again, I have no idea what algorithm this links are based on.
(Via Yahoo! search blog and they get bonus points for using coffee as the example.)
