It has been over 24 hours since the most recent Yahoo! Search Update and some of the threads have been getting some traction. All in all, it appears to me that the Yahoo! update was a step backwards, from what I read in the threads. How do I know? Let's forget any of my own sites and just look at a WebmasterWorld thread.

You have those who are happy about the changes, but they all say something similar, I'll quote one.

wow great update i got like 30-40% of traffic income really nice i like it

In short, those who have sites ranking well now are happy, of course. The best sites are ranking well in Yahoo! Or are they?

Senior member steveb says;

Call it the groups.google.com update. This stuff should have been purged three years ago.

You have some calling this update the MSN Search update because the results appear to him to be easy to game.

Yes, we are seeing a lot of shifts. Did yahoo recently hire anyone from msn? Results are looking more like msn's

All in all, I think from what I see in this thread, that the Yahoo! update was a step backwards.
