Yahoo Search is Getting Closer to Google Search

    Did anyone noticed changes in Yahoo!' SERP today. Yahoo is following the same way as Google. Frequent change in Google SERP is kind of common now but it's new for Yahoo!. Yahoo! is changing search results very frequently now.

    Yes, I did noticed a difference on one of my sites about 5 days ago. It started getting and has since been getting a lot more type in traffic from yahoo search for its main key word. I was rather pleased. The same site gets only a few type in hits from google.

    Yea there is an increase. But Yahoo has to work hard to give relevant results. Google is having manual rater program to increase relevancy of search results.

    Yahoo! results are relevants but the problem is that major % on internet uses Google so its natural that you will receive less traffic. If more people will start using Yahoo!. they will find Yahoo! good also now days. :)

    I've seen an increase in traffic from Yahoo too.

    This in turn has increased my earnings from Google ads :D.

    Thanks Yahoo

    Just because their results are getting better doesn't mean they will EVER become better than Google.

    Google visitors are not likely to switch back just as Mac users don't switch back to Microsoft.

    I have noticed an increase of 100 unique visitors per day to 1k unique visitors per day from Yahoo! :)
    It's really catching up and sending me more and more traffic these days.

    I've been seeing this for a couple of weeks, much more regular updates. Mind you I've always thought the first page of results with Yahoo compared OK to Google, it's just a shame it doesn't drive much traffic.

    Yahoo search get awful, most of my keywords that rank in number one bounce back to to second page, it is unstable right now! but Yahoo search is far from Google SERP.
