Yahoo! Search April 2007 Update

The Yahoo! Search Blog posted a weather report informing us that they are updating their search index.

We are in the process of rolling out some changes to our search results. As usual, you may see some changes in ranking as well as some shuffling of the pages that are included in the index throughout this process. This update will roll out this evening and will be complete very soon.

This must be a small update because I did not find any threads preceding the Yahoo! blog post on this. Typically, SEOs and Webmasters are able to spot the update, before Yahoo! announces it.

Or, heavens forbid, the Yahoo! Blog could be startin' to pick it up and announce these things in a timely fashion. :) According to some contacts, this is supposed to be a legitimate update...I wonder if the SSP clients will come out in force and become more evident with the proliferation of "quick links?"

Funny example of the new results. When I look at this page today (4/6), I see the #2 result being a 302 to a 301 redirect hijack of an Google Groups result. http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=air+plane+tickets&rs=1&fr2=rs-top&ei=UTF-8&fr=yfp-t-501
