Drastic reduction of pages and backlinks

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by ajsa52, Nov 14, 2007.

    I noticed today that results obtained with Yahoo are very different.
    Over many months it was displaying around 500,000+ pages and 250,000+ backlinks for my site, but today I got only around 20,000 pages and 30,000 backlinks.

    I'm using this URL: https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/advsearch?bwm=i&bwmo=d&bwmf=s&p=www.MYSITE.com
    
    https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/advsearch?bwm=i&bwmo=d&bwmf=s&p=www.MYSITE.com
    
    Code (markup):
    Has anybody noticed something similar ?, or/and
    I need to use another URL to check pages and backlinks with yahoo ?

    Log into siteexplorer with a yahoo E-mail account. The results for me are much higher when you are logged in.

    Most of the sites I am usually checking have dropped to about 20% of backlinks they had 2 days ago ... I hope its something temporary again ... it happened 2 months ago ...

    They've definitely been tinkering with something within their Algo. As of yesterday they seem to have reverted to the SERP results that they had just before the last update.

    Anyone else see this?
