Right now the results i see at Yahoo are Identical to Google.

Is this temporary or permanent? Before the Yahoo Serps got priority. Now it seems an exact same result as google.

Anyone have any ideas?

The yahoo serps ARE google. They have been for some time. Overture, followed by Google results. And most recently Google results using Yahoo descriptions.

Is this temporary or permanent?

Has been permanent, but should be temporary :)

No not exactly.

For a long time the Yahoo serps were given higher priority.
for like 18 months as far as i can remember.

Just the past couple of days, it seems to be exact google listings...?

For a category keyword I track, Yahoo results are still different from Google.

LAWNBOY....
Guess it depends on your search. For quite some time, the yahoo serps for ALL of my keywords have been straight GOOGLE results. They still are, but with a Yahoo title/description.

Yahoo has been experimenting with some searches that are clearly different than Google. Furniture is one mentioned here before. There are other one word ones, but I personally haven't seen any that were two words or more.

Results are very similar to google, but it seems that local domains (.de, .it etc.) ranks a little bit lower (one position lower).

The word "Free" with almost anything "sleazy" you care to think of will show plenty of Yahoo/Google difference for two or more words.

Outside of that arena I didn't have much luck finding multiple word phrases.

NB: only works if you have Yahoo set to display the default 20 results, set it to a larger number and the results are pure Google.
