Yahoo!’s Search Pad application will go live later today (July 7th) after a year in development, it has been reported.

The service will be built into Yahoo! Search and is designed to provide an online notepad, allowing users to collect, edit, organise, save, print and email search results or content.

It could also be of interest to search engine marketing professionals, as it automatically tracks sites that a user has clicked on and detects if they are searching for information on a particular topic, Yahoo! said.

According to Search Engine Land, the company ran a "limited" beta test earlier this year, which it recently shut down in anticipation of a full rollout.

Users will be able to share information collated on Search Pad via a public URL, as well as through social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook and Delicious, the site noted.

"Search Pad is helpful in completing tasks and making decisions that require collecting information over multiple search sessions such as making a large purchase, planning a vacation or gathering information on a health issue," Yahoo! said.

Yahoo! Search Pad is set to go live at 21:00 Pacific Time today.
