    Just did a search in Yahoo and noticed they've switched to showing 10 search results per page. Don't like it.

    You can change that by clicking 'Preferences' (usually found next to the "Yahoo! Search" button.

    In the preferences you can change a few options, one of which is the number of results per page.

    I would think preferences are cookie-based, so that might have something to do with it as well.

    The did this at some point while I was on vacation. Between Aug 18th and Sept 7th but I don't know when. It's had an affect on Yahoo traffic and I think it's a shame. I always liked the 20 results per page format.

    they probably did it to make the dial up pages load faster who knows I reset mine to 100 when they made the switch as I am sure most dsl and cable users did also

    kmkimmo,
    I know you can change it - my point was most regular searchers won't.

    this just gives the paid results less competition from the organic results

    danniel,

    sorry about that, I didn't realize that you were talking about a default number of results.

    Was just trying to help you out...

    ...and I agree, most searchers won't change that preference. That's a bummer!
