Anyone else seeing major changes in Yahoo today? I went from Prodigal Son to leper on Yahoo on April 15th... site:www.mysitename.com gave me only the index page. It was still that way this past week, today 9,530 pages of my site are back in the index. Interesting the caches are a few days to a month or so old so they have been spidering me, just excluding all the results.

This sounds more like you had a temporary penalty on your site that recently expired.

Yahoo just added more pages to the index, pages from a couple of my sites are now in there. But it doesn't look like an update from what I've seen. My guess is that an update will be more toward the end of the month.

My site's ranking has wobbled considerably today, for a number of keyword combinations.

Mostly downward.

I noticed major shuffling amongst the competition as well.

I can't say I'm impressed...

A lot of people, including myself reported a huge loss in indexed pages. A lot of the same people are now saying that their pages have returned + some. I think this is just the way yahoos new? algo is running. It used to be quite common a few years back to see yahoo doing this. Maybe they have gone back to an old algo with a few new features.

I have checked my client site that the index of website is shown only one page. Actually the website have over 30,000 pages. They have indexed by Google up to 30,000 pages. Why Yahoo index only one page?

No question the same type of changes have happened to Yahoo search that had happened to MSN months ago. In fact there is a parallel in the results.

Parts of a client site which have low page ranks, hits and are not great search candidates are now high on the search results, while rich pages which were formerly #1 universally have fallen beneath them...

No logic that I can see except greater dependence on the Title Meta tag...

It is kinda funny how they handle sub-domains. The purpose of sub-domains is to help further clarify sub-topics of your site without using new domains. Well if your sub-topics happen to be keywords (and what sub-topic aren't) then you get penalized and booted out of their results. You would think with all the link farming and black hatting going on, they could find some worse sites to pick on than those who designed their content around sub-domains. Oh well.

Its not funny to mean - its quite painful - I use sub domains to identify like so:

city.state.category.domain.com/subcategory_if_present.php

Its a directory site with several thousand business's listed across the country. I have over 500,000 pages indexed in google and Yahoo banned me - so what im supposed to rebuild my entire site because yahoo doesnt like using subdomains? The site is not spam it gives unique results based on the subdomain by finding business in and/or near to that city.

I have not attempted to get reincluded yet.

anyone seen bad rankings in yahoo.co.uk search? Our site seems to be ranking well in yahoo.com, but is out of index in co.uk.
