Was There a November Yahoo Update?

The Yahoo Search blog announced there would be an update over the weekend at Yahoo Search. The thing is, there are currently no comments at that Yahoo blog post on the update nor do I see many threads discussing any update at Yahoo.

We do have a WebmasterWorld thread talking about the announcement. Maybe one or two are noticing some slight changes in the Yahoo search results. Maybe Yahoo is updating and maybe SEOs have gotten to the point where they don't care? I hope not.

One member said that for his niche, Yahoo stopping mimicking the Google results. He labeled the update, the "Divorce from Google" update. This is what he said:

It seems they've dropped many of the Google manipulations they started in July especially in my areas. Wise decision on Yahoo's part. Let the good times roll. Commerce sites are coming back.

The last Yahoo update we reported was in mid-October and it didn't show up until a couple of days after the announcement. This November announcement was made on Friday, but still very little reaction.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.
