Is Yahoo back using Google's results again?

I am seeing the exact same result sets for Yahoo as the usual Google results.

I was just trying to research where a referal from yahoo came from. I did the search on yahoo and my page was nowhere to be found in the first 9 result pages. Decided I must have been hitting a different index or something and stopped researching the issue.

I was looking into it since it is to a site which normally does not get many Yahoo referals since the Ink. cutover.

After seeing your post, I did the same search on Google. My page is #2.

Some servers switching back to G could explain this.

This is not a big enough sample to really mean anything, but maybe others are seeing something similar.

When I search Yahoo (US, Northeast, Road Runner), I am getting ink results.

I also see yahoo serving google results.
There was a big cosmetic change on Friday, then Saturday it had all changed back to original look and feel plus they were serving googles results...
Any one else see the same?

The need to go back to using Google until they get all the ridiculous problems being discussed in other threads worked out. They should not have launched the "new" Yahoo until it was ready.

I still see Yahoo serving its own results. Yahoo should probably consider going back to Google until it fixes the redirecting link issue. I am seeing more and more search terms dominated by this problem.
