As we continue to watch and report on the issues over at Google.com, we notice more and more weirdness in the Google SERPs. Reported at Search Engine Watch Forums that a site:www.yahoo.com command search at Google will provide three homepage results from Yahoo.com.

Notice the three different descriptions selected for the same URL? Look closely at the way the second URL is listed, looks a bit funky - no? Looks like ASCII like characters. Also the third result, the "m" in the .com is ASCII code %EF%BD%8D for "m".

A site command search for site:yahoo.com without the www brings back 360,000,000 results. So is this a Yahoo! server issue or a Google indexing issue? I am not sure.
