    Is this a new marketing technique for Yahoo? Type in any search term (I used the term "turds") in their search box, and results 2-4 are ALWAYS the sites below. Wassup wit that??

    Overture and Yahoo have always done that. Included paid results in the main listings.

    No what he's got is some BS that got downlaoded to his PC apparently without his knowledge.

    Not sure if it's 180/n-case, but I got that at the same time as 180 and Whenu on one of mine. Whoever/whatever it is inserts a few of their own listings near the top of results on Yahoo and Google.

    In other words, they are altering Yahoo and Google results.
