I'm seeing SERP changes for all of my keywords. All went up a bit, and more backlinks are now showing. Looks good so far...

Hurah! Our targets keywords are finally No1! A great update for me. :)

Our listings went down a bit, but to mostly spammy sites. It feels like the only way to be competitive in Y! is to use spammy techniques nowadays.
This update is yet another disappointment.
What a joke Y! has become.

All mine went to number 1, and at the same time all went to number 1 for MSN too! What is up with MSN and Yahoo tracking like that?

Yeah something is definitely going on. Went from 150 page views yesterday to over 1400 today.

Looks like our site had been re-included! Disappeared in June - looks like it's back today! Phew...

Hope I'm not speaking too early...

I have had a couple sites move up and a couple slip off the rankings. The top 10 results for most of my categories have fewer spammy sites. I would say this update was an improvement rather than a setback.

Yahoo did a small update a few weeks ago, then rolled back to original serps with 96 hours. I hope they stay with this one for at least 30 days before updating again. Too much instability makes Yahoo look like they are unsure of themselves and their serps.

Let all the lab rats know the results are getting better Tim.

Great update!

These results are looking very good indeed :-)

In fact unless I am wrong they have sorted the 301 redirect issues?

This update hit my site so badly, I'm now raring for the beta MSN Search to be released.

And that's bad.

Edit: interesting to note, my results are hugely different using Yahoo UK (way better).

Yes, it seems they have.
