As of roughly midnight yesterday my statistics from yahoo! tell me something has changed with my yahoo rankings, or just in general.
- Google traffic is up a nice clip, the new Panda iteration was kind to me(I worked hard for it!)
- Bing traffic is up 11% over what I would expect for today.
Overall both Google and Bing are sending what I would expect barring major changes, minus the increase likely resulting from Panda, but then I look at yahoo and..
- traffic is down 41%
- traffic quality is drastically lower
- time on site down 44%
- bounce rate up 17%
so not only did I receive less traffic from Yahoo, by a considerable amount, it was lesser quality traffic (mostly foreign in fact) as well.
Now if Yahoo is no longer a search engine and it's powered by bing... what's going on here?
