Yahoo Search January 2008 Update

Jan 18, 2008 • 6:57 am | comments (3) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Yahoo Search Engine Optimization

I am seeing early signs of reports of a Yahoo Search index and algorithm update. The last update at Yahoo Search was on December 3rd of last year, so we are well due an update.

We have threads at both WebmasterWorld (see new posts of this old thread) and at DigitalPoint Forums, with signals that the update has begun. And about 99% of the time, we report the update before the official Yahoo Search Blog does - so expect a post there today or within a few days.

One WebmasterWorld member said:

My rankings are starting to show up again, but not even close to where they once were. I must admit, that I am glad to see that I am not the only one. What's up with Yahoo?

A DigitalPoint member said:

Yes, I saw changes... something is updating right now...

Is there any way to find out what kind of changes? While the two post above me say it's great for them - I have seen no change in my sites? Would like to know what i need "new" to improve ranking at Yahoo.....
