My results in Ink/Yahoo are very relevant with or without quotation marks. I think the results are on topic and very accurate.
If anyone wants to see the ink/yahoo database in action go here and swap out (keywords go here) with your keyword, spaces between keywords does not matter. Make sure this string (&tmpl=E088) is on the end of your search before searching.
[search.yahoo.com...] go here&tmpl=E088

Are those that have seen YInk finding the results worse, better or the same as standard Ink results?
Some keywords are up and some are down. But isn't the more important thing that ink or Yahoo is finally coming online with a different set of results than Google.
What I like is that people will finally be able to find my sites for not only my main KW's, but now completely diferent word combinations more than one main search engine.
Ink for me at least is bringing new KW combos that I didn't previously think of, which in the long run means more and better traffic. All more reasons we need more SE competition.
I've not seen ink yet on .co.uk but just out of interested when ink results are being showed is the "results provide by G" still their or the ink logo?
I do see the G reference on a beta search (&tmpl=E088) that contains the INK results.
I also see the G reference is on a results page that was loaded an hour or so ago, that featured G's listings.
However, I no longer see the G reference in the window where INK results were live on Y! (this search was just done).
Feels like things are moving forward...
Now it seems random again (I can't see it anymore without the "beta-tag").
It has to be very close now.
It went back to Google for me in MI for a while, and now it is Ink again. Curiously tweaked Ink, too. On the most critical SERP for my sites, one site is #1 on Yahink, and the other is #2 below it on Yahink. That second site is #4 on Pure Search. Needless to say, I really like these Yahink SERPs. ;)
Some stunning surprises including a number 2 for a killer term with 85 million pages returned (some mistake surely)! Goodness only knows how many backlinks I'd have had to get for this in Google!
What ever the tweak to INK is - I love it.
The most of my pages that I can find indexed on ink is 26 out of about 300 now. Yahink has 86 of them, does this mean a completly seperate database from ink?
With the additional pages, I do much better in Yahink than via pure ink or the msn version!
Then it went away, and I could look no further.
Bummer, bring it back please
Ex: When I searched for cars, I get :
That link is still the old Yahoo we know. I'm pretty sure it's a different link when you get Inktomi or other results.
That way we will be able to test it.
The little "powered by Google" is gone at the bottom of the page. But one site I have is nowhere to be seen. It is top ranked in Ink for many keywords.
I even tried just typing the domain directly into Yahoo but it told me it didn't exist.
So am i getting Ink results or not?
I certainly hope this is the case, Tim. Yahoo has been brilliant for 18 months, a switch to Ink would be dunderheaded. A switch to a technology that draws on all of Yahoo's assets would be outstanding.
For one thing, I hope we'll be seeing the results of Scooter's web crawling since it seems to be about 10 times more active than Slurp.
