To the engineers working on the crawler, please consider how redirects should be handled; 302 and 301 are very different -- figure it out and it'll remove about a third of your doorway pages.
Previously we were #1 for our top mtarget 2 word term. What was listed was the same as is in the Y Directory. Now on yahoo.com we are at #20 with our description meta tag as the first line of the listing and the second line is the same as the second line from the Y Directory.
On yahoo.co.uk we have dropped to #6 but the whole listing is still the same as the directory.
I suspect that they are playing around with how they incorporate directory results into Web results.
The whole thing looks a mess to me. I wish they would stop experimenting with live data.
