I manage SEM for a large travel client and noticed that several large competitors sites had major reported link pop changes. I used a Link Pop tool and noticed one site was from ~43k avg last year to over 476k now. Anyone else notice this?

I'd guess it's because AV just switched to using a version of Yahoo search.

Personally, I don't think Yahoo/Overture has their act together with Site Match. I Added about $500 worth of pages to Site Match a couple of weeks ago. Have heard nothing from Overture/Yahoo. I thought editors "personally review" submitted pages. I'm already in Yahoo results from ATW/AV but that goes away 4/15. I'm very unimpressed with Yahoo's program at this point - clearly they were more concerned with Google than releasing a product ready for prime time.
