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?
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'.
