Can you believe I just said that? Yahoo is delivering a cleaner SERP than GOOGLE.
You also need to be like the 1st ones in the directory to expect traffic now.
If not, well, you will have to have a good ranking in that third pary search results provider.. lol
Oh man.. This is not good..
Are you saying everything is Overture (top and bottom) and Google for results. And the Google results have Y! descriptions/titles for sites that are in the directory? This is what I saw when I looked at someone's screenshot too, but I can not see it myself.
I was seeing the new results, then on more recent queries it went back. Clearing cookies had no effect, so I think that they are either still testing (doubtful) or having migrated on all servers yet.
I'm really worried. We were riding high on Google, then had a weekend outage and appeared to get penalized by an average of 2 pages. We were still rocking Yahoo (all our sites are PR7 or PR8), but no more.
Good thing that I didn't buy that new car that I wanted.
That's exactly what I'm seeing, with ALL references to search results being provided by Google gone.
<added> Of course as soon as I posted that I checked again and got the old results. :) </added>
