Yahoo rolling out more Inktomi?

I posted before that I was seeing Inktomi in my Yahoo SERPS and it appeared to be IP based since it was definately Ink at home and Google at my office computer. This has been the case for over a month now. However when I look at the percentages of traffic given over time, I noticed a huge shift today:

Last Monday:

Google: 43% of traffic
Yahoo: 20% of traffic

Today:

Google: 34.7 %
Yahoo: 29.8 %

This is a huge discrepancy considering that this is a site with several million unique visitors per month.

Is anyone else getting percentage of traffic discrepancies today like this? Is Yahoo rolling out more Inktomi as they slowly phase out Google?

No - what it is, is my title and description show up correctly but the url string when you click on it is the old affiliate coded url. I also had started with free pages and rolled into a .com - the old free pages, I believe, were dumped by INK going back over 2 years.

This is one of the things that both Google and Inktomi need to address. Chances are the affiliate has a higher PR than you do and may have used some sort of a redirect page to count clicks at his end.

Here's a recent thread someone else started, with no explanatory reply:

Here's another related:

And another, which I started:

And I've responded to a bunch of posts on this subject area in the Supporters Forum. If Yahoo is monitoring this thread, I wish they'd address the problem. I can point them to some other threads on the topic... It's getting to be a big and annoying problem.
