This may be old news, but I couldn't find any information about this...
During a recent Yahoo search, I noticed that for a specific keyword, the #1 listing in the Yahoo serps had a link that redirected to the website instead of an actual direct link to the site. All of the other Yahoo SERPs (2 through 10) had standard direct links.
The redirect link is from Yahoo. The listing is not hijacked or spam.
I imagine that Yahoo tracks the CTRs of their results, but I didn't think it was this blatant.
Is an another example of Yahoo using human editors for their SERPS? or a slip up?
