Surprised no one has commented, haven't seen any ads on Y for a couple days. Not on top and bottom nor to the right.

Spartan looking by comparison, but pure search without the fluff is nice.

Have to bring this up again because Y still not showing any ads when I do a search.

Are you seeing ads?

Yes, I do seeing ads on Yahoo, but very much less clutter than before. The right ones and also the bottom are mostly disappeared. For some keywords, only 1 or 2 sponsor results appear at the top and that of Yahoo is often there. So where are all the rest of sponsor results?

If this is what they meant to do, WOW. I have actually seen a search with the ads however, but certainly different than what I have seen before.

Ads on the right and bottom as usually, but, also ads on top. But more of a Google AdLinks horizontal type than before. Much much much cleaner.

On second thought, perhaps it was the term I searched for. The 'shortcuts' shown may have long been there before and I hadn't noticed. The links were to other pages within the Yahoo portal, but just selling 'gear'.

No change. If artdog is still seeing zero ads it might likely be your Norton Internet protection, or something along those lines.

Ads are back now but were absent for about 3 days, not running Norton.
