Yahoo has begun making use of clickthrough measurements as part of its relevancy ranking system. If you look closely, you will notice a redirection when you click on a site. These are on sites other than the Google sites.
Anyone have any ideas how much clickthroughs are going to affect rankings? Maybe similiar to Googles?

Hmm, interesting. Didn't they always have this? If not, when did they started doing this? It looks like what Excite does.

Logs show it started this morning sometime between 6 and 7am eastern US.

What does this look like in the logs? I mean, how does it look different? I am wondering if I need to tweak my traffic tool so I still get a good "Yahoo" measurement.

They've been tracking the clickthroughs for at least a week. I had saved some searches from Yahoo last Monday, and the links then already had the clickthrough tracking URLs.
