Yahoo rolled out a U.S. beta version of its Glue Pages, giving a visual boost to users' search results, according to a posting on its Yahoo blog site.

The beta is designed to allow users to enter a search and have not only text links appear on the site, but also related pictures, videos and blogs.

The company is taking a page from its Yahoo India Glue Pages site, which it unveiled in May.

With this effort, Yahoo is seeking to put related content all on one page, while its competitor Google currently offers up text links, with additional links to related photos, videos, blogs, books and news.

Microsoft's Live Search takes a similar approach to Google's.
