Yahoo Site Explorer Adds Top Queries Report

I was looking at Yahoo Site Explorer when I was reviewing the dynamic URL tool earlier and noticed a new beta link available to sites that are validated or authenticated in Site Explorer. The new tool is named "Top Queries" and it basically shows you the top ten searches you come up for a specific day, week or month. It shows the number of views and clicks you received for those top queries. In addition, it shows you your top URLs as well.

Here is my top queries report for the day:

Here is my top URL report for the day:

In this case, Yahoo is playing catch up to Google Webmaster Tools.

I am pretty sure this is new, but I can be wrong. A Yahoo Site Explorer suggestion thread notes that the feature was not available at least 11 months ago. And I have not seen any reports of this feature being available in any blog, including the Yahoo Search Blog.
