Does anyone know if Yahoo has corrected their handling of 404 redirects?
To clarify, for those who dont know, Yahoo was punishing sites for correctly using the 404 pages when content changed. In my case, i ported a site to a new url and used 404 (permanent change) redirects to redirect the url. Google handles this great, dropping the old url and picking up the new one immediately, but Yahoo hangs on to the old url, adding the updated content, and pushes the new url way back. I hope this made sense.
Anyway, is it fixed?
