I don't know about yahoo, but on Google, if you do a search, for
instance, on "gold rings" you get 1 million plus pages, if you scroll to
the bottom of the page of the first results, there's a link there that
says " Search within results" ... which takes you to a new search page,
but only searches within the results of your original search.

I would post a screenshot here, but since it's plain text... well...

Give that a try.
