I am not sure if this is new but it seems if you search in Yahoo for, Yahoo will return results as if you submitted a site command to Yahoo. For example, a search on returns about 18,800, only from

If you conduct a true site command at Yahoo Search, i.e., Yahoo will automatically redirect you to Yahoo Site Explorer. Yahoo actually started redirecting these types of queries to Site Explorer almost exactly two years ago, today.

Has Yahoo decided using a simple syntax should stay on Yahoo Search and not be redirected to Site Explorer? Has Yahoo always returned a site command like result set for searches? I know Google does not return site command like results for a search.
