not in France they didnt ..I just tested directly 1 minute before posting ..same old tacky looking ad ridden confused site ..with their own logo and search box smaller than the all singing all dancing ads for other peoples products ..
I type yahoo.fr into the address bar ..it sends me to [m.fr.yahoo.com...] ..
as per usual ..and it looks as per usual :((

I'm very impressed with the new email they updated last week.

No idea but I'm there so I'm not complaining.
Might be to so with multiple relevant pages from the same website.

See the tech.yahoo.com and shopping.yahoo.com links?
Both are paid inclusion...sigh.
What are the odds, do you think, that the algorithm really put both of those results there? You'd think, after firing so many people...the ones left would want to play fair (or is this Carol's influence?).
I do find it odd, too, that the only 2 paid inclusion links *in* the top 10 are from Yahoo properties for this query.

Thanks I actually saw the new one ( vast improvement )...but it's not the default landing page if you try to get to Yahoo France from where I am ..and thats inspite of what they said about doing this new cleaner interface here too ..
til they do IMO they'll not be a search engine but continue to be a shopping portal and send no traffic ..
Unless you are in the left hand column ..

If I were #1 on Yahoo I'd keep it to myself. Up until a year or so ago Yahoo results were mediocre now they are pure unadulterated garbage. The sooner they start to use Bing to drive their results the better.
In my niche for the top $ term the #1 is a recently launched hyphenated generic domain with a site built purely for affiliate links. Below that are 4 sites with high repeats, high density and characterised by the undoubted fact that they all paid some poor guy in a low wage part of the world to buy them links from off topic low quality blogs.
It's just complete garbage. Yahoo's only saving grace in the UK is the fact that it only has 4% of the market. I wonder if those are the poor thickos who get the oh so simple question in "Who wants to be a Millionaire" wrong when the even thicker contestant asks the audience.

Now then .. if we could just be totally rid of that stupid "guess what I'm typing" dropdown on the search box .. we would be set.
