Some results seem more legitimate while they still keep on being scammed by automated link exchange networks, at the same time they keep on penalizing legitimate site.
IMO it is a little better overall, still there are bugs in this algo that do not reflect 1/4 billion dollar investment for sure.
Just don't get it.
AV and Alltheweb show spam free authoritative results.
Y! is still full of junk.
AV has the same results as Y!..........
in my IMHO...a see a slight increase in relevance. but the #1 result for a very competitive keyword I follow...has almost NOTHING to do with it........ like....wow...thats bad.
but luckily they have some better results elsewhere.
At least 50% of the serps for relevant key phrases are showing links to yahoo.store sites, ebay store sites, whatever.about.com sites, a new proliferation of scraper sites, and big portal inforamation sites that had nothing to do with the niche market key phrases except a mention in a sentence or two within an article!
The serps right now in our estimation are pure trash. Historically, over the past 2 years, Yahoo only drove about 10-15% of sales, however, every little bit counts.
I was pulling for Yahoo to give search relevancy a real boost since Google seems to be loosing their focus on the original concept of "pure search".
To me, yahoo seems to be falling apart. After analyzing them for 10 years, this is the worst I've seen.
