    Some interesting things in the article:

    "In a surprising move, Yahoo isn't replacing Google with Inktomi. Rather, the company has developed a brand new search engine," http://search.yahoo.com/

    "Today's launch is the beginning of a progressive rollout that will take place over the next few weeks."

    "While Yahoo and Google are likely using similar algorithms, one reason for the differences in what's displayed is that Yahoo's email and search teams are now working together to leverage what they've learned about spam. Since Yahoo mail processes billions of email messages, this knowledge is likely quite helpful in providing Yahoo with a much deeper understanding of the characteristics of spam -- and helping keep the nasty stuff out of the web page index."

    "The Yahoo Search index is capturing the full text of web pages, up to a 500K limit. This is greater than the 101K maximum indexed by Google."

    The article said they're not replacing Google with INK but any INK PFI gets in the index.

    I like the idea about matching up the spam messages to the domains that are responsible for sending them. I'm hoping that Yahoo! makes sure they find the party responsible for the spam, and not someone who's domain has been inserted.

    If they are able to remove the domains responsible for spam from their index, good for them! That certainly earns them a few extra points in my book!

    Now that’s more like it! Yahoo actually shows many and I mean many people linked to my sites.

    It’s about time!

    Looks like a mix of Ink and Fast global index from here. There are moves on the PFI side too, which those of you who have Search Submit renewals approaching need to be aware of. We'll have to wait and see if they do an L$ on us, but the grapevine says they are....

    slurp came by last month and grabbed some pages, but overall I still don't see my site anywhere in inktomi results.

    I hope yahoo cranks up the bot aggressiveness and frequency to something like the googlebots.

    anyone know how long it usually takes before showing up in inktomi results? or an easy way to check if you're in the index like google with site:domain.com or allinurl:domain.com?

    Lately though it seems people are finding my site through tons of specific searches through google.. and my daily traffic has been increasing though, I hope now that the switch is official it doesn't drop off until I can get properly indexed by yahoo

    Yahoo is the same as MSN and INK

    domain:www.yoursitename.com

    To see links to your site use

    linkdomain:www.yoursitename.com

    Yeah, Yahoo is going to have there own PFI separate from INK PFI.

    So if you paid for pages to get in MSN/INK, they'll still be in MSN and for the next couple of months in Yahoo. Then after that those paid listings will be gone from Yahoo and you'll have to PFI to get your pages in there, and the pages you paid to get into INK/MSN will still be in the MSN index.

    If you're in free in both Yahoo and MSN, you're in good shape.

    So now we got
    Google
    MSN/INK
    Yahoo - Another SE for the professional SEO'ers to try and figure out the algo.

    Looking great for me so far. Be interesting to see what the future holds, though. Will Yahoo gradually "lose interest" in their free SE listings - focusing on PFI and such instead??

    Yet another crazy chapter in the search engine wars.

    Time will tell, i don't think they'll lose too much interest in the free listings, they need those to be relevant and with Google promoting how many pages they have indexed, Yahoo would want to keep them in. They'll definetly push PFI more and it is good for getting pages in quickly and for the 48 hr. refresh. Have to wait and see how much $$$ and the rest of the details for the Yahoo PFI.

    Should be an interesting year, i still think Google will become a portal (ala MSN, Yahoo) later this year/early next to keep up.

    On a general public demographic, ads served jumped 14.285% yesterday (on a base figure in the tens of thousands). The CTR dipped slightly as a percentage, but stayed on the high side of the normal range.

    These sites do not cloak for the various engines, nor were there any changes made to them in the past few weeks. The base number was calculated from records of a few previous Tuesdays to eliminate any day-of-the-week differences.

    Looking good so far. I'm getting more traffic from Yahoo than Google on a couple of sites. I hope this sticks

    I don't see as many spammy sites in Yahoo as I do in Google, yet for most of the search terms I'm utilizing, I see a higher level of relevancy.

    I'd say Google has its work cut out for it if Yahoo keeps this up. More pages indexed is one thing, but if you can't find what you want, that's something else!

    I am glad to see a little more competition in the SE world, now.

    Agreed.

    Still amazes me how only 3 or four search engines in this infinite world of internet. I think by now there should have been atleast 10 or 12. I know its expensive and eventually somebody buys out somebody else, but we need more competition amongs SE's
