Just did a Yahoo search for the same two word search term <place name><widget> within a few minutes of each other on 4 different browsers (just as a test). The placement results for a page on my site were as follows:
Firefox - position 1
Internet Explorer - position 17
Netscape - position 17
Opera - position 14
I presume they are updating their algo.
I have checked the results several times, so I know they are right.
Can anyone with a bit more experience than myself throw a bit of light on this.
Note that as with all index updates we are still tuning things so you’ll continue to see some fluctuation in ranking over the next few weeks.
I have not seen any change myself since this post. I haven't seen anyone else reporting much either. For some reason, Slurp has really slowed down on my site. I know the month is not over, but June stats looked like this:
Googlebot - 3368
MSNbot - 2484
Slurp - 1737
While August looks like this:
Googlebot - 5293
MSNbot - 2253
Slurp - 244
The site has about 1,000 pages right now...
If you feel dissatisfied with the serps and feel Y needs to hear about it, you might consider emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
