so it had been noticed some time ago, strange that no-one started a similar thread out here until now.
The jist of it is that Yahoo is giving certain sites a "booster" so that they always rank highly for certain keywords. Many think this is to increase relevancy, others think it is Yahoo's way of stopping people being able to "work out" their algorithm by throwing in a couple of manual changes.
