    Google vs Yahoo results


    I am seeing big differences between what Google is displaying and what Yahoo is now showing. Up till yesterday I got essentially the same results on Google, Yahoo, and AOL for my search term "work at home".

    Now Yahoo is completely different.

    Does anyone know if Yahoo is now using a different search provider other than Google?

    Under Yahoo Directory search I am number one on the listing for above term but under web search I am not even in the index????

    Can anyone help me find out what is going on?

    Google results sometimes take time to migrate to Yahoo. Usually the results are identical. Google still feeds Yahoo. there was a change in the SERPS yesterday. I am now showing similar results on Yahoo. But not Identical yet. Give it a day or two.

    Yahoo has the ability to apply its own filters when listing the Google search results, so there will be times that the results will look different.

    It looks like Yahoo is slowly switching to a mixture of Inktomi and Yahoo Directory results. Many European surfers have already seen this, particularly in the UK.
