Some pretty signficant changes across the board. Doesn't seem much of an improvement in most of the sectors i've checked so far.

Definitely some jumps though, still trying to determine what factors may be more/less at play.

Yes, I've noticed these, very significant changes. Yahoo SERPS tend to be stable to the point of staleness, so it's pretty surprising. I saw a set of results yesterday, they were different today, and both of which were differnt that the results holding for the last couple months.

I've been in the #1 spot for a competative phrase for many months, disappeared, not I'm back, but the subpage that had been #1 has been replaced by the index page now at #4. Strange.

Very significant changes! I am very pleased to see that some of my sites have jumped out of the 50's range to the first page. Now if I could just get Google to follow suit! :>

Looks like a step backwords in my area. I hope they are going to still tweak this thing out. Yahoo has completely different results from positiontech pure search for some searches whereas in the past these were fairly close to matching with some sites being filtered out of positiontech for the Yahoo search. The ranking is completely different. If they would switch to the positiontech results with some filtering then the results would be much improved.

Looks to me like domain-name, and Title are even more important than before.

nice press release


It is important to have a dialog with publishers who rely on our product to send them visitors and that these content providers provide us with valuable feedback on our search products.

big big big changes, i'm doing well everywhere i want to be doing well which is very nice, seems on-page SEO is much more important.

Seems very similar to MSN's results.

Hmm...bad timing..
one of my main sites was down for 7 days and it lost all the rankings and backlinks to other sites, too.

Bad...

announcement

I think this marks the first time ever that an update has been announced. Another example of how Yahoo is trying to communicate with SEO's despite the obvious reasons not to.

I vote we name the yahoo update: Update Tim

A very polite announcement, in my opinion, representative of Y's increasing willingness to communicate with webmasters and SEO's. Nice job guys.
