IMO - YAHOO seems to have made a major miscalculation in their most recent alg exchange with GOOGLE.
We had 2 or 3 Sites where YAHOO delivered good relevant serious traffic, beating GOOGLE "Hands Down" in all "Relative Respects", not for months, but years ---- well established.
They all fell off the map! Even, GOOGLE Images is leading on one of them now and it isn’t even an “image based site” What the hell happened to YAHOO in this last alg update?
IMO - This is absolutely the worst competitive screw-up I have seen by any SE trying to distinguish themselves in the algs!
I believe this is more serious than many think!
By the way, GOOGLE constantly updates their “Webmaster Pages”... Is this new?:
I just don’t remember them posting a recommendation that webmasters also list in a major rival directory. Do they use that public information (Yahoo Directory) also now?“Submit your site to relevant directories such as the Open Directory Project and Yahoo!, as well as to other industry-specific expert sites."
What’s going on here? - These are; major changes addressed inadequately!
Everyone I talk to are reporting major drops in YAHOO!
Did they fold up and die?
Did anyone come out ahead, if so I haven't seen it professed publicly?
What happened here?
