Yahoo changed today in my sector, we moved from the 3rd page to the first page. From my analysis a few days prior I think they tweaked the algorithm on template recognition.

>>they come at you like a spider monkey

Is that a good or bad thing? In pictures, spider monkeys are kind of cute. :)

what's yahoo?

My sentiments exactly! I don't care if I'm #1 in Yahoo...It flat out doesn't produce. Any comparable term with Google pulls me 100 times the visitors. Yahoo sucks! Even worse they have banned two of my nine sites for God only knows what reasons. They don't care what we think or how we feel they could improve their results and to me that is flat out disgusting. Their communication is non-existent other than we hear about a "SEARCH WEATHER UPDATE" and even then they don't listen on their own forum. All I know is if I didn't listen to my customers I wouldn't be in business.

Giving credit where it's due, Yahoo does send *good* traffic. Maybe not as much as a competitor for sheer numbers, but for certain niches Yahoo visitors are buyers that convert well.

I haven't noticed any recent changes but did loose quite a bit of 1st page listings on the beginning of this month and has affected my income. So Yahoo search users do convert for my niche.
