One search even brought up one site 6 times in the first page of results!
Mind you I would keep in mind this 301 problem with Y.
They have said they are working on it and so I am sure that there will be changes in the future.
We have a site that has well over 20,000 pages in Y and where we used to rank very well for the past 7 years (with around 5000 refs/day) are now nowhere to be seen in the SERPS.
One test search I did brought back a result of a domain I purchased through Network Solutions with a forward option attached - so this site which does not exist (only domain name purchase with forwarding through NS) but which I own was showing the title and secription etc of the main site (the one it was being forwarded to).
I expect there will be a lot of changes on Y for the next few weeks/months.
I checked the results against Google each time, and the results were sometimes almost identical to Google, and sometimes fairly close.
This is a big deal for me, as I while I have been doing very well in the Google serps, while being nowhere on Yahoo, as of about an hour ago I am doing equally well on both. I suspect that there may have been an algorithm adjustment at Yahoo, but what do I know .....
The phenomenon is not IP-based, since I get the normal Yahoo results if I use a different browser on the same computer, or if I login as a different user. Thus, I assume it will stop if I clean my cookies, but my question is: why? Any theory?
BTW.. this applies to google in French and google in English ( fed from the states ..in as much as one can be sure with load balancing as it may be coming out of Ireland or Switzerland )..where "y" is sending me it's results from I didn't look up ...as I never use it for search ..just go there sometimes to see what it's doing ..
as "interesting" as the y! results are right now, going back to google would be an improvement.
