Anyone see the samething on your area?
I have been tracking this quite a few weeks on Yahoo, (since there has been no Google changes lately.. :) )

My sites are up a few rankings across the board for most target keywords. I am seeing the increased traffic from Yahoo.

Also One of my newest sites(Lauched on March) has been ranked decently. The results seem to change (like Google's update) depending on when I check the results.

Any comment?

<<<<<I see changes. A site I think was banned (though has pages in yahoo) was showing up for keywords on May 6th but now isn't...>>>>>>

Jilla, I'm sure you've noticed that it's back to that again on Yahoo as well as MSN? I've noticed ever since late yesterday.....do you see the same?

I thought yahoo.com already updated the database.
My ranking and traffic also gone.
I got traffic from yahoo on 17-3-04 until 13-5-04.
I haven't changed my website.

seeing a major update to the directory results serps - and one authority site I have and a few others I follow that were all in the old pfi penalty box are finally showing good rankings in Y - and definitely not seeing google results (in the US) they finally are allowing a bunch of us back into the SERPs

I have the same problem Jon King has...a relatively high rated page with a title that reflects what was on the page 2+ years ago. I do know that there are some old links out on the web with that title on the link text but not a large number of them and not nearly as many as links with the proper link text.

Strangely enough, the title only changed on this about a week ago...it was correct until then. It started to alternate between "right" and "wrong", and now, it has been "wrong" for the last day.

It certainly is destroying the value of what should be a very valuable page...however, overall, I'm happy with Yahoo turning into what Google used to be. I just wish they would index my deep pages faster because the ones that they've indexed are doing real well.

I see many changes today.
They are updating.
Serps for my keywords changed, even though they rolls back.

My backlinks are updated, the backlinks that were incorrect (based on their caché) and were redirections to another site, are now gone.

I am still not in, but yahoo vertical crawler came back today for my homepage again,
let´s have hopes that all these problems will end soon.

I'm also seeing some major changes in the SERPs today. I'll have to study it more to see what all's changed, but a quick glance across a number of keywords seems to indicate sites listed in the Yahoo directory ranking much better.

A colleague of mine was talking to Positiontech (UK) yesterday and they told him that Yahoo tweaked the algorithm about a week ago.

I suspect that it the effect of that change that we are starting to see.

wow...serps that i follow are full of affiliate spam with no orginal content..the exact thing that they were trying so hard to block.....yep...all that hand reviewing looks like it was a complete waste of time and resources..any chance of letting legit sites back in now?

I would say that this is definitely the most substantial algo change since Yahoo launched their new engine. In general, the serps I watch have improved.

Any ideas what changed?

It looks like Yahoo favors the web's worst and most useless. Yahoo is also late to update. They seem to be stuck in their effort to prevent the most competitive sites to be in the serps and instead get all the garbage.

I think the webmaster community expects more from Yahoo and many of us thought they would perform better than Google because of the clean start they said they gave themselves.

Eventually, if people can't find the best products, services and information out there, Yahoo will be hurt moneywise and lose reputation.

I see an update in progress as well and see quality sites moving up. Sites that were less relevent are dropping down.

From the examples I know, all but one of the lost/redirect pages have returned. This is very great news of course if it applies across the board.

I see some of my pages appearing for normal searches. Still only 10% of my new pages seem indexed but much better than 2% just a few days ago. Hope it will improve in a couple [or more] weeks. [Hits have improved dramatically.]

Results are significantly better in the areas I follow. I'm very impressed with how fast Yahoo created a quality algo. Sure, no SE is perfect (never will be), but before you start complaining just compare the current algo to old inktomi algo. Better than Google's right now if you ask me.
