What else can go wrong for Yahoo, I mean, seriously kick them when they are down? Yesterday afternoon, Yahoo.com - the main web site - was offline for just about an hour. It technically seemed to be up, but incredibly slow, taking me personally close to a minute for it to load at times.

I wrote about it at Search Engine Land as soon as I saw people Tweeting about it. During the outage, I was amazed there was no note about this outage on the @Yahoo Twitter account, but later on they did admit to being "down a bit" yesterday.

As some of you noticed, Yahoo.com was down for a bit this afternoon. We're back up and running-sorry for the interruption!less than a minute ago via web

I do believe this is the first time I have ever seen Yahoo.com down in my life time. I really cannot remember Yahoo every being down before, at least not their home page.
