There is no weather report on the Yahoo blog, so that together with the amount of sites that aren't even indexed, some blue chip companies - I don't think it will stick.
No dont both with Yahoo its not worth it even if you got a no.1 spot you dont get a lot of visits, focus on MSN and google.
Ohh one more thing there image search is somewhat ok

i had left the old versions of the pages up, hoping to phase them out. wonder if i got tagged for dup content.
all links point to the new sites.
site:www.google.com has 8 results!
11,700,000 results for me in the UK.
Hmmmz - when Yahoo makes changes lot of pages get dropped only to come back later (dont know about a whole site getting removed though and such drastic drops of 12mill to 8 pages.)
Oh - and I mean comeback later as in hours/days - not as in months.
Look at the last few update threads - exactly the same thing happened - and also at the end of the month Y! do seem to make some changes.
I had all but two of my domains completely removed from the serps, and most of them were in the top 3 for a variety of terms.
Just sit tight for a few days and hopefully things will get back to normal...
Aside from one legitimate site, they are only showing spam/fluff, along with two of yahoo's own sections, wikipedia, an article from the bbc, the page from the cia world fact book, etc.
I don't think Yahoo would be happy if they were to actually look at these result sets.
I get the feeling that whatever they are trying to do, it's blowing up in their face.
When I do a yahoo search for site:www....domain...com I see there are still a bunch of long dead links in their index to the doorway pages that I removed months ago. They are mixed in with my good links.
Could these dead links in my Yahoo backlinks be my problem? How do I get rid of them? Yahoo has been spidering my site but they never seem to update their site links.
Should I put in a custom 404 redirect back to my homepage in .htaccess? Is this practice recommended? I have been adding lots of original content and a blog.
My domain in question is in my Profile.
