This brings up the rest of the site. All pages cached.
We had over 10,000 pages of site indexed.
However, when i went to yahoo and did the same search
only the old pages were returned in the results.
Then later, this morning all 10,000+ pages were gone
from google. I was very excited... now i'm stressed
Oracle....I just deleted my cookies, cleared my cache and deleted all temporary internet files and now once again I am able to find the new results.

Listed yesterday [well for some of it anyway]
Other new additions have also been visited by 2.1 yesterday and today, are they looking for something?
The spam level is *high* [have they switched to Northern Light's algo?:)], doorways, refreshes, hidden text, cloaking it's all there.
Try a few searches and wander through the cache listings, it's ugly.
Seem to be more .asp pages and many more .shtml pages listed.
Do you find the yahoogle results by going to the second tab on Yahoo! (the one that says web pages, I believe?) If so, how many people actually click that tab to find results? I would think they would just take what Yahoo gave them, unless they're more web savvy, and ignore the yahoogle stuff.
Yes, that's the one.
The difficulty in comparing traffic from the two "strains" of Yahoo is that the positions are rarely close in both.
However after the latest Yahoogle update I now have a site at No. 4 in Yahoo and No 3 in Yahoogle, close enough for a fair comparison. Give it a couple of weeks for the data to build up and I will be able to give you the percentage split.
for what its worth, a few months back we had #1 for a very competitive term in both the WebSites results and within the relevant Category (top category for the term) and traffic was approx 3:1 search vs. category.
i know that's a little different than your question, but still interesting. we also had top-5 in YahInk and the traffic difference was probably 10:1 Sites vs. Pages.
But the pages is still nothing to sneeze at, and definitely still worth it, IMHO.... its still the most traffic to be had on the web, in one location, from an engine...
do others agree?
