Yahoo Site Explorer Gets a Makeover

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by HomeRun, Aug 21, 2008.

  1. #1
    A few years ago, we launched Site Explorer with the goal of providing site owners with better visibility into how we index their websites and what data we use in our search service. Over the years we've moved beyond simply providing information to webmasters to allowing them to tell us what to do with their site, using functions such as submitting feeds, deleting URLs or reporting spam. Our most successful function among all has been Dynamic URL Rewriting. We've had thousands of site owners enter rules for their websites and webmasters auto-rewrite an average of 25,000 URLs per rule, with some sites rewriting millions of URLs in 1 shot.

    Today, we launched a new look and feel for Site Explorer (http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/new) that provides a more dynamic interface to accommodate future feature roll-outs. The new interface also includes a new Site Summary page to provide statistics for authenticated sites. On top of this, we're also increasing the number of rules for Dynamic URL Rewriting that you can enter from 3 to 10.

    The new site is located at a special URL to give you some time to play around with it and update your tools that use our interface. We will make this the default experience soon, so please use this time to update your tools. And, as always, please give us feedback on your new experience. We want to hear from you!

    Huge improvement! Still needs to step things up to catch up with Google's webmaster tools, but I like the new look and new features.

    I like the new look & feel they've crafted for Site Explorer, but I'm more interested in what it might mean for us in the near future.

    Could this Site Explorer redesign be a harbinger of things to come? One line from the Yahoo announcement really caught my attention...
    I'm imagining a more 'Google Webmaster Tools'-esque dashboard with a lot of the same tools & features, which would just rock ;)

    Nice design, same functionality. Hopefully they make it more customizable in the future in terms of narrowing results.
