    Woke up this morning to find some interesting changes in the Y! SERP's. Visited the Y! Search Blog to find that a new update has just been rolled out:

    I'm seeing some good improvements to relevancy across the board. Nice.

    Congrats to Y!

    Hopefully it isn't done yet. Mine had a drop this morning, but this happened last time also. Then the next day it was back up.

    I was wondering if they did.
    I returned back to my old spot. The one I lost with the previous update.
    I did some changes to the layout and made the total page size 50% smaller so I figured it was either the change or an update. Now I never know if the changes really helped :D

    But anyway climbed back 21 spots and I am back on the first page
    even a no1 spot in some countries yay

    Based on their blog entry I see that there is nothing significant in this update over the previous updates.

    Yahoo has long way to go about the search improvement, if they want to compete with Google.

    Yes, some changes have been observed and some have gone down and others up. They have also updated their web pages links status as well.:)

    The update resolved the problems with subdomains.
    Now my site www.mydomain.de is no longer a subdomain :D

    It ranks #2 in Germany for an english high competitive keyword but not in the USA where I want to rank good. I think I must use an US webhoster in the future :rolleyes:

    A week ago I didn't rank at all for the term 'computer repairs'

    Yesterday I was ranking 7th so thought all my hard work was paying off...

    Today im 142nd and thats if I narrow the search to UK only.

    Not to sure what to make of it.

    well for one of my terms there is a suspended page and wikipedia in the 1 and 2 spots

    some of my sites that were dropped way down last update, came back , sort of, instead of being top 10 they are now top 20 which might as well be delisted for the traffic it pulls


    i guess i got a couple sites back in top 10 , but no real gains on the competitve terms

    I know from experience that getting above those wikipedia hits is no easy matter, but certainly doable for most keywords/keyphrases, IMO. Follow Y! content guide right down to using ALT tags should help (using the TITLE attribute wherever possible can't hurt either.)

    Suspended page: maybe that page was only recently suspended.

    It was a good update for my site also. Most of the keywords got top 10. It seems Yahoo bot is visiting more often than Google at this time.
