Checking our Monday rankings and noticed a dip. However, when I click on the cache, the highlighted terms include and extra 'kw' highlighted, i.e. 'green' 'widgets' 'widget' with 'widget being the extra term.

Anyone else noticing this?

No one sees this?

I watch the financial sectors.

Not seeing that problem Tex,

and i don't watch that sector but i do think the cache is having issues.

I am seeing the cache of some of my pages showing a completely different websites cache/page and my Uri on site explorer. Not just one page being “jacked” but a few.

All the offending page is doing by the looks of it is linking to mine and for some reason they have placed the base href as my page and its completely confused Slurps.

All seem to be last crawled on the 2nd of May. something is wrong with the cached pages on that date for my site all before and after are looking correct so far.

Waiting to see if slurps can figure it out if not i'll have to report is some where i guess.

Vimes.

Well I see that my my ranking of a certain keyword changes every hour for the last couple of days. It almost looks as the ever changing ranking at Google.

Strange, no clue what it is.

I think they are just refreshing.
I noticed the number of our pages in Y! doubled this week, according to SiteExplorer.

I noticed this happen a few months ago, then they steadily whittle down the number of your pages indexed.

For example, there are about 36 of our pages indexed that are old long dead 404s.

I used the new "Delete url" feature to get rid of most, but it only allows a maximum of 25 deletes per domain.

I've emailed them the rest, and asked them to let me delete the remaining 404s.

How about it Tim?

It'll save slurp some work.

Strange? I'm looking at a very competitive term in the UK and in the first ten I see one p*rn* site, one Russian chat site (yes it's in Russian, not English), one completely irrelevant one and three 'blocked owing to abuse of TOS' blog pages. In the ten years I've been trading on the web I have never seen such a disgraceful offering. What on Earth is going on?

Yahoo? strange?
Imagine that!

I have an older site that used to rank very well on Yahoo?
(intentional? rather than!)

Last year it dropped in an apparent penalty.
They won't say why, so I decided to do some digging...

I found several privately registered domains I do not own. The owners cut content directly from my site, posted and linked the site to me. Seems like a favor right? Wrong!
This may be one instance that earned me a dup content penalty.

In doing more research, I found totally screwed up listings for my site under "mydomain.com.com" That's no typo.
.com.com and that's how it appears in Yahoo.
My registered trademeark name in blue text, then "www.mydomain.com.com"

Clicking the link takes me to a search engine whom which the TOS will not allowed to name.

This sounds like a deliberate action by a competitor, and I have a very good idea who it is.

Seeing is believing...
If anyone is interested. You may contact me.

I am taking this one step further....

Checking my logs and noticed that when someone types in 'bleu widgets' the results returned include the proper spellings as well as the misspellings. Our site (no misspellings) ranked nicely with the misspelling listings. There is also a link the user can click so that only the proper spellings come back.

When clicked, the cache of the listings returned include 'blue' 'widget' 'widgets'.

Again, I see this in the financial sector.

Forgot to mention that when I click the correct spellings, our site tanks.
