The cycle used to be end of the month - except for the early September update.
I noticed a small increase in traffic too, but this may be some tweaking before the official update.
I knew it...I was just starting to come back after being down 30% for almost 3 months. The last 2 weeks have almost been normal then Saturday I'm back to -30% again.
There is no win!
which is why I NEVER... EVER depend on Yahoo! traffic. If it comes, it's bonus.
For example searching for a three-keyword phrase ( in my niche ) I found at the top (the first result! ) a spamming site having only 2-3 not so important incoming links... Just a "work in progress" spamming site.
Ditto for other sites in the first page: some of them are "work in progress" ...... spammers that are beginning their task.
Other sites are spamming mirror sites.
Only few sites I know are genuine good trusted sites.
Maybe Yahoo is mixing results...
Something is moving.
I don't think these results represent the new yahoo algo, because they risk to lose quality.
Probably they are testing and getting information to elaborate.
