Is it just me or has there been a Yahoo update in the SERPs?

Seems my positions are fluctuating all over the place at the moment.

And, why can't we name Yahoo updates? Yahoo seems to be updating every couple of weeks now and it's spiders won't leave my sites! :>~

Y added 700+ pages to one site last night. None of them are showing as cached.

I'm seeing the oops message frequently too.

The new update in progress looks good to me

I'm getting a lot of Oops! messages still.

My site appears in the index 600+ pages, but ranks for nothing - not even the website's own name. This has been a problem since the June update. I guess I'll just keep waiting.

It's encouraging that their annoucing the update and that they're happening once a month. See you in August, Yahoo!

Got the Oops message several times today.

I see changes, but they are not particularly good or bad.

Yahoo still includes AdSense sites on its first page of results. They've got a long way to go before users will start taking them seriously.

Same here with the "Oops" thing.

I'm dropping like a ROCK on Yahoo, 1st on the 1st page for a load of phrases to now on the 2nd page and falling, and again replaced with BS like spam, blackhat sites and totally non-relevant content. It's Google all over again rewarding TOS-violating sites and penalizing guideline-abiding and relevant sites! Hopefully when this "Oops" goes away, so will the crappy SERP's!

Seeing nothing but "oops" here in the last ten queries.

I'm not showing 'oops' anymore at my location, but the SERP's are still trash.

Sites well optimized, but lacking quality are definitely having a good go of it. I'm happy, but then I use google to search, so...

Difficult to get any kind of an idea on the point of this update. What is it they are trying to accomplish with it? What issue or area is being addressed to improve the overall results or user experience?

First, Hi All, I am brand new. Great forum! :)

I had 900-1000 pages yesterday indexed by Y!
99,5% of visitors came from Y! And from today only
silence is on my site. Only homepage is indexed.

I don`t know how others, but slurp is visiting me as usually? Any idea is it temporary (i hope so) or this is a big earhqake?

Was thrilled to see that my perfectly legit site is now outranked by spam, link farms, and affiliate sites. Nice job Yahoo!

same here, at around 1-2% of normal traffic today, sure hope this is "work in progress" and we're not at the end game all ready

Batavlava,
Same happened to me.. and I don't do spamming, I don't do Link farms, I don't do cloaking - in fact I spent six months on creating content-rich pages! I'm panicking now because, just like you, I had 95% of my visitors coming from Yahoo till this morning! I'm just drinking a bottle of wine right now and hoping for the best!

Hi All,

You can count me also in the > 95% traffic from Y!, today .. zero, nada, no referals. I'm still sandboxed for GG and MSN does not like me :-(... I better go to sleep.

My last Y! referral was about 23:56 Jul 19th EST. After that no referrals, only a few from GG and MSN, and some direct (no referral) visits.

CS.
