    I was reading over at webmasterworld about somebody seeing different results and the example give was furniture. So i typed furniture in both Yahoo and Google and get entirely different results. On some other searches the same thing. Sometimes its straight google results, sometimes it's not. Anybody know why?

    Hmm..did the same search. Getting a full page of Yahoo directory results - no Google at all. Interesting. And no, I don't know why.

    Just did some other searches (SEO related) and it's the same as usual. Google results with a boost for those sites in the Yahoo directory. I'm sure it all means something, I just don't know what.

    I have been getting some strange Google results. I think the crash or whatever happened when they went down last weekend may have goofed something up.

    My ex-employers site where I was eCommerce manager and did all the SEO and affiliate marketing just had a MAJOR Google ranking change. I resigned 2/15 and they hired someone to take my place. Suddenly their site which I had gotten very high rankings for is nowhere to be found in the Google serps and they lost their PR. I'm not sure if they changed their site or if the new guy did something or if it's just the mixup that Google has been having. (I'm sorry, this is really mean, but I think it's kinda funny - bet they miss me now.)

    Yes, it's interesting.

    It seems like, they're doing it for the certain terms, like "shopping" which are designated keywords, probably hand-selected by Yahoo editors.
