Thoughts, about stuff

Wikipedia subsections spotted surfacing in Bing

leave a comment »

I just spotted a feature of Bing that I wasn’t aware of and I think its rather cool. When Bing search results include a link to Wikipedia we also get links to Wikipedia subsections (i.e. those sections of a page that are reached using hashtag labels). Take a look at the following result for a search for America’s Cup

Those links to History, Challengers and defenders and In the media take you directly to those subsections on the Wikipedia page, observe the result of clicking on the Challengers and defenders link:

Pretty cool, and very useful! I do not know whether this is a new unannounced feature or something that has simply passed me by but nonetheless I’m sure there are plenty of people out there, including Bing users, that didn’t know about it. Now you, dear reader, do!
