Yahoo Search Removes Numbers on Search Results

Dec 17, 2007 • 8:54 am | comments (5) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Yahoo Search Engine & Yahoo SEO
 

In the old days, if you conducted a search at Yahoo Search, Yahoo would automatically number the results for you. So of the 10 listing, Yahoo would display the rank number on the left of the result.

Here is an example of that in action for a search on google at Yahoo: Yahoo Drops Numbers

Now, the same search, does not display the numbers: Yahoo Drops Numbers

You can download the latest version of serp easy surf(Firefox add-on) and it will give you the numbers of the search results in Yahoo. http://serp-easy-surf.seoquake.com/ Thanks to Gleb from SeoQuake for doing this. (It also gives you numbers for Google and MSN)

serp=easy says it doesn't work for Yahoo. Why the heck would Yahoo do this? I thought they had overtaken Google in popularity . .
