Confirmed, see some major changes. Weird ones too. Almost Florida like.

I see changes - but they are minor and date oriented.

Looks like simple incremental updating to me.

Biggest changes I have ever seen there. I had to delete my cookies to see them though.

Are there multiple Yahoo ips? Or does everyone see them at the same time?

I see no changes in my little neck of the woods.

Believe there are 3 indexes because I monitor one page daily for key phrase and it is either #8, #9 or #10 on any given day.

It's been reopted for the next update, this one? But remains at 8 - 10.

Everything looks the same on the SERP's I follow. Even broad single keywords. (Deleted cache and cookies too)

I see new results too. 80% of the top listings in my area are now (a) doorway page sites that (b) redirect to affiliates and (c) whose backlinks are all from spamming blogs.

The trend continues. . .

Big changes on a few serps I watch on Y!. Looks like a lot of sites listed in the directory pushed down those that aren't. Probably not the case everywhere but the ones i've been watching seems like it.

YEEEHAW! my major keyword shot to #4 in all the yahoo/inktomi sites.....

.... and they finally picked up my new page names 3 months later (wipes a tear)

I'm seeing real traffic from Yahoo now, not as much as Google but it increased significantly today.

Now if only MSN will pull it's act together to get back to where I was the week before BETA went LIVE, the universe will once again be in harmony.
