Is this an error?

Just noticed today that searches on Yahoo.co.uk "all the web", which were previously UK biased (correctly so) are now showing USA companies in positons 1-6, the old 1,2,3 etc are now 7,8,9

Yahoo has been very good at UK targeting searches when people don't select "uk only" results, which most don't. Better than Google I think, but this is a definite downturn.

The products I'm talking about are regionally restricted, so the top 6 results are of no use at all to UK users.

Anyone else seeing this, wonder if it is an error - how do you go about reporting such a thing to Yahoo?

Yes I see this too today 22nd September, the normal UK results now only show when you click UK results only.

It seems that yahoo uk is currently showing US results for some reason.
