Anyone seeing any changes on Yahoo! portals? I only see an update in Yahoo.com.

Yes that is correct. This specific update referred to on the search blog will only appear on web search on the .com site.

So is this update complete or do all of Yahoo portals get some mysterious set of SERP's?

Why would only .com update and not the portals?

WOW, what's happened to Y? My site is buried on the 2nd page of the SERPS for its key keyword, the one on which G considers me an authority, and the one where I used to be n. 1 on Y up until this update.
It's not even the home page that shows up but some deeper page!
A site dead for 2 years gets the 1st position now. I've been updating mine for 3 years now.
Either the people at Y are REALLY incompetent, or they are trying to kill webmasters that use AdSense.
I noticed something though, Yahoo Site Explorer shows only 35 results for my site, which actually has hundreds of original content and thousands of postings. Is Y. having trouble with dynamically generated sites?

I use Adsense and did quite well in this last update. The two are really not connected at all.

There is NO DUPLICATE CONTENT Filter
1 competitor with 4 Exactly same sites:
keyword1+keyword2+keyword3 = domain name
ranks with in top 5, twice per domain on top 20

Has anyone experienced or confirmed a Yahoo "sandbox" effect? Do you tend to "come out" of the "sandbox" during these updates?

crobb305 - When Yahoo! announces an update, there is usually shuffling of positions along with a update to thier index itself. So yes, at times your websites can all of a sudden start ranking well on Yahoo.
That's what happened to my site. One day we had like 80 pages indexed, the next it was more like 500.

I have a site with just a single "coming soon" page. It was at #14 before the update. Now it is at #1 for its main keywords. It has no inbound links, no outbound links, no internal pages. Just a keyword related domain name, a single "coming soon" page, a title, description and content containing the keywords.
The weired thing is that it is quite a competitive niche yielding some 350,000,000 results in Yahoo, and 430,000,000 results in Google for the given keyphrase.
Yahoo seems giving more weight to domain name, title, and onpage factors than ever.

selomelo - Yahoo sometime ranks new sites high. Let us know where you are in a month.

I am aware of it. But the site in question may not be considered "new." The domain name was registered in late Oct last year, and the site is active for almost one year (since early Nov 2005). :)
I registered it and put it online for future use (left to "age," as it were).

selomelo - My bad, I'm not talking about new domains, but newly discovered pages.

Yahoo UPDATE confirmed and new support for NOODP tag! :>~
