Detailed Description

Update

Yahoo Buzz is a Digg-like Yahoo product where users can rank stories from a set of pre-approved publishers. Yahoo then combines users rankings with search engine trends to determine the 'buzz' of particular stories. Every day, a few of the top Buzz articles will be bumped onto the Yahoo.com main page, giving the story potentially the widest audience possible on the internet. Reports suggest that, in tests, links to Wired.com received over 2 million unique hits in 2 hours. Yahoo says that they are able to rotate coverage on the main page for smaller sites unable to keep up with the traffic.
