Small Yahoo Search Update Two Weeks Later?

On January 19th we reported about a Yahoo update that many SEOs and webmasters took note of. The thing is, Yahoo never officially confirmed that shuffling as a update.

Now, I am seeing new reports of a Yahoo update at WebmasterWorld. Two different webmasters reported drops in their rankings. Here is what they said:

I have seen major drop down in my SE ranking for all of my keywords, even that my 9 out of 10 keywords were stable and holds top 10 position two days ago, but now they are no more coming under 50 results.

I've dropped about 8 positions from positions I've had since last October for the two main keyphrases I monitor on Yahoo. It looks like it happened late monday or early tuesday. Usually with Yahoo updates I tend to pop back up after a week or two.

So let's see how it goes and if things change or if Yahoo finally announces something.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.
