@tedster I am not just referring to my site results those I can kind of understand. But the over all search quality. Example a couple months back I was curious what happened to a old live in g/f. Over the years I every few years do a search for her and could not locate her. One day I tried it on Yahoo after Bing merge and first listing she pops up.
She still does not show in Google with maiden name. There are other examples that in searching unrelated to the multi sites I work with where search results are better than in Google and that just was never the case before. In the quest to limit duplication they are also effecting search results with a negative impact.
If this is what they feel people want that is fine. But I think most people searching will check more than one source and if they continually find better results else where Google traffic will start to decline. Time will tell.
