Over the past few months the old Overture suggestion toll has been soooo slow you virtually can't use it or it doen't work at all.

Now, we know it's not the absolute best tool out there, but it is a staple and one of the few things that is unique about Yahoo offerings (keywords and counts).

Can Yahoo not see how all these little things (problems) are negatively impacting it's bottom line?

You realy can't see how these things hurt the credibility of an internet presense like Yahoo?

The only people they hurt are webmasters. The general public, i.e. Yahoos's clients, don't even know they exist.

Buy Yahoo relies on webmasters to provide Yahoo with keywords they want to bid on.

Take a look at Yahoo's last quarter results...not so good were they?

With respect, I don't think that is related to the Ovrture suggestion tool being slow ;)

No but it all adds up to over 6 years of poor service. If their own tools aren't working that doesn't do much to attract new advertisers (or keep existing ones happy).

While I tend to agree that things that don't work properly send a negative signal of quality to users, on the positive side Yahoo throws a great party for webmasters. :) Y

See you at Yahoo's Party at PubCon? A good place to bug a Yahoo'er about it.
