For as long as I can remember, Yahoo accounted for only about 12% of my SE traffic, while Google was at 76%. Over the last couple of weeks I've noticed that Yahoo jumped to about 20%.

At first I thought I was losing my positions in Google, but realized that the Google numbers were steady. It was just that Yahoo picked up.

Has anyone else seen an increase in Yahoo referrals? Is Yahoo up to something new?

Did the latest Yahoo update increase any of your rankings in Yahoo?

Yahoo had some pretty big changes. Affected our rankings in a negative way and traffic has dropped significantly the past few weeks

Apparently I picked gained some positions on Yahoo.

I've always ranked well on Yahoo, though. It's just that not as many people use it.
