The results seem pretty good now, and I see new pages listed, so this is new "pretty good" data, which may be the best part.
it's always shaking. Yahoo is very unstable. Unlike Google that has its "shake", then gives us a brake for another 3-4 months, Yahoo is shaking every month, or even every week. Sometimes my site goes #1. Then a week later it suddenly drops #30. Than it's back on first page, then... on page 100. The same with my competitors.
I don't care about Yahoo anymore, coz I know: no matter how good is my position today, it's not going to be like that tomorrow.
I don't think this is a sign of instability. More like a sign of a strong engine.
What makes more sense and which is better for webmasters, mixing up results and keeping them fresh, or having our site drop out of Google for months (and still counting) b/c of silly issues like 301s and dup content?
Also, when was the last time you had new commerical site indexed in Google?
Their new spam prevention techniques have done nothing but hurt good, honest webmasters for no reason.

Arghhh I hope I can comeback to first or third, but I have a bad feeling about this, Is everyone's site moving like that lately?
What could be the cause of such position changing?
They seem to have gone to a smaller index again, (not as small as the one seen Saturday) but smaller.
Wonder why they do this - I have no doubt (well a little) it will bounce back again.
Guess this is just the way it updates - perhaps they have to clear some old data before adding some new?
Actually, they are "discovering" the URL's. They don't cache them, or index their content - just that the URL exists. FYI, Google does this as well.
As a general comment - maybe some day, we can have an actual algo dicsussion at some point and not a thread of 200 "my site went down, I hate Yahoo" - "my site went up, Yahoo rocks".... someday...
