Relevancy = Where? Please let me know because I fail to find any improvement..REALLY.
additional usual stuff = keeps on screwing up perfectly legitimate websites..
ok ok find me a major improvement that leads to believe that Yahoo will finally be a real and trusted search engine (I mean 4 PPC ads on top of the listing + hand coded SERP + discount if not listed in their directory + .......etc....) :)
I lost some very good positions, and I don't believe this drop is final. Last week the same happened. I lost positions for a few days and then recovered all of them.
I think yahoo is updating but it is not finished.
Serps are dominated by websites whose webmasters who are outwitting Yahoo.
There was a time, a few months ago, that the serps actually seemed relevant. Whatever they're doing to tweak the results isn't working. Maybe it's time to roll it back and start over?
Combining the lack of cashe for many sites in the serps with this knowledge i doubt were done yet
One weird thing, for a specialized two word term, the first result is the main page of a university, which has absolutely nothing to do with either term (not separately or together). It's like ranking the harvard main page first for a search for: elephant skateboards
Considering the extreme lameness of the last few updates, there are clear positives this time. Yahoo still not in Google's overall quality league, but now pulls way ahead of MSN.
Still, the utterly worthless spam in some highly targeted terms is amazingly terrible.

If you do a search for "the", it used to show roughly 20 billion, currently I am seeing 6.6. Quite a big difference.
