Yahoo! Removes Category (Directory) Links From Under Search Results

David at Search Engine Roundtable Forums reports that Yahoo! has removed the directory (category) links from within the search results (directly under each search result.

A search on google at Yahoo! Search confirms this to be true. In the past the results looked like:


Notice the category link, which links the search result directly to the category it belongs to within the Yahoo! Directory. Now that seems to be gone for all searches I tested.


Same with a search on search engine roundtable:

Old Result:

New Result:

I tried several different searches that I knew returned the category link within the listings, and all are gone. I do not know if this is on purpose, or if this is just a Yahoo! test.
