Yahoo Search Fixing 301 Redirect Issues Already?

Yesterday I got upset that Yahoo Search Still Not Listening to 301 Redirects. Sometime yesterday afternoon, we were getting reports that this is now resolved.

An updated WebmasterWorld thread has the individual upset with how was handling those redirects in the past saying things are now looking better. Here is his post:

This seems to be clearing up on its own.

I no longer see the non-canonical URL in the links of Yahoo search results; The link in the SERPs is now correct. However, I do still see a non-canonical home page listing in Yahoo Site Explorer when "Show pages from: Only this domain" is selected.

I am happy to see this resolved or being fixed.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.

The question is whether they are showing backlinks to 301ed domains under the backlinks for a target domain ? I know that until now they didn't

I realize this is an old post but from my perspective the issue is not being resolving nor fixed. My hompage has been showing up with and without the www for for around 8 mos now. 301's have been in place for a very long time. For some queries, with the www and for other queries without the www. Sometimes the homepage disappears completely for periods of time. Needless to say, the problems have simply killed my Yahoo traffic. Dave
