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

Mar 26, 2007 - 7:11 am 5 by

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:
add-to-my-yahoo-removed.gif

New Result:
ser-cat-yahoo-search.gif

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.
