    I'm not impressed with the results. I've seen some stupid results from this update. I don't mind being dropped from SERP by better pages, but most of the pages i see now are not very relevant compared to ones before this update.

    For example, when i search for this - benefit of cabbage , look at the top 5 results. Highly irrelevant!

    Even the sponsored ad is a joke.For other results it appears that the more keyword you stuff on the keyword and description tag, the higher you may go on the ranks.

    Look at the No 1 site for the term stupid yahoo . very stupid results ....

    Not impressed. Hey Yahoo! shake again ( hehe ..i will be very unpopular because of this :D)

    -- one of the comment i see at http://www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000158.html said that the NEW ranks are riddled with spam. I support that 100%

    I have not noticed much movement for my site in the SERPs, but it is nice to see them finally index all my pages.

    still almost 2000 indexed pages down (make that 38,000 pages down if google is a good indicator of how many should be indexed). I love how every update they say "you should be seeing more of your pages in the index" and it just doesn't happen.

    Weird. Yahoo API shows that I have great SERPs in yahoo again I wasnt showing up at all for about a month), but when I actually check yahoo, I do not show those rankings at all. Anyone know if the Yahoo API is a leading indicator or not?

    Still no recovery for one of my sites. Another has gained quite a few new top 10's though... adding to a long list of current top 10's

    Same here....
    I just got:
    #1 on Yahoo of 38,300,000 page some 500 search a day only.
    #4 on Yahoo of 62,900,000 pages over 6K search a day.:D
    #1 on MSN of 4,500,000 pages some 100 search a day only
    #3 on MSN of 18,900,000 pages some 100 search a day only
    So I'm quite pleased with this combo

    Google.... NOTHING :mad: but a #9 of 3,000 pages and some 5 search a day:eek:

    Google really hates me so so so bad!

    I don't mean to add fuel to the fire, but I am tracking about fifteen sites and the only one that suffered had adsense all over it. I don't use adsense on any of the others.

    The one that dropped had many top ten keywords that dropped off as they almost completed de-indexed the site.

    whatever has happened at yahoo has made $x a day from adsense to $4x !

    so sites with adsense will not be effected.
