Anyone want a gentlemen's bet that Google updates their count within one (1) week from this post. Anyone?

Says it on the front page.

Yahoo! Image Search
No other search engine gives
you a more complete picture.
  • Now over 1 billion images
  • Yada yada
  • Yada yada

Yahoo image search often finds that obscure image I'm searching for when Google doesn't. Well done Yahoo.

So this is a roll in/out of the old AllTheWeb multimedia and gfx object engine?

600,000 of which are porn. Use Google if you want to get descent images.

Does anybody know how to identify referrals that come through via Yahoo image search? I've tried a few times, and my logs show no referrer string.

RobBroekhuis:
On my logs, these show up with a referrer string starting with:
"http://images.search.yahoo.com/search/images/view?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages

I wish I had the same rankings in the normal search; there is not a duplicate URL filter...

d'oh! Never noticed until just now that my browser from work NEVER returns a referrer string, no matter where I come from (I don't usually get to my site via other sites, so I never noticed before). Is that a user browser setting, or more likely to be determined by a corporate tinkering/firewall?
