Is Yahoo Still Showing Google at Times?

 5:43 pm on Mar 2, 2004 (gmt 0)

Just went to check my site in Yahoo, and noticed the listings had shifted. So I did a side by side search with Google, and it turns out that right now, for my keywords, Yahoo is displaying Google results - at least through the top 10, which were VERY different.

I know this happened at least once before, then the results switched back to Yahoo. Is anyone else seeing this?

Since they switched over about a week ago I've only seen the new Yahoo search results.

They might be either doing some testing or still working out the glitches from the transition to the new system.

I think I had seen G results over the weekend (nighttime Germany).
But only shortly...

Strange - Netscape gives me Google on Yahoo; IE gives me regular Yahoo. The two are markedly different for my key words, so it easy to see the difference.

Tried clearing the cache and reloading the page - still the same.

I saw 'cached' results like it was using google search results this morning. Made me wonder if it was Google results or if Yahoo was also caching pages.

When we announced our switch we said we would be rolling the Yahoo search technology out over the next few weeks. We are still in the roll out process.

I am seeing the Google results in the Ca Yahoo as well as the other country specific Y search portals

Thought I was seeing things...

New site went live last Thursday.
Picked up by Gbot immediately & now showing Yahoo in logs for a misspelt KW showing 2 results on Yahoo.

(Very commercial ;)
No Slurp in logs > Y still pulling from G
