Yahoo's June Search Update Goes Unnoticed, For Now

Jul 1, 2008 • 7:35 am | comments (5) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Yahoo Search Engine Optimization

Yahoo has announced yet another Yahoo Search index update. Yahoo notified us that we "may see some ranking changes and page shuffling in the index." But as of this morning, no SEO has noticed any significant changes with their rankings.

In fact, there isn't much discussion around the Yahoo Search engine at all, right now. We have a WebmasterWorld thread discussing the announcement, but all posts in that thread say no one noticed anything. We also have a Plurk thread where I asked if any one cares about the announcement, and the consensus is, no. No one cares.

The last Yahoo update was about a month ago, where the changes were very subtle to say the least. Yahoo typically conducts monthly search index updates and you can see all our coverage on those in the Yahoo SEO category at the Search Engine Roundtable.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld and Plurk.

I like Yahoo too. I've had my yahoo email adress for 8 years now. This search update maybe the reason why slurp has been acting like a spider in knots!

We like Google a bit more as at least 90% of our traffic comes from Google...but still wont ditch Yahoo!
