Dissecting Yahoo Search Redirection Codes

author-default
by , Comments

Last year, I did a breakdown for Search Engine Watch members of what all those parameters mean that are embedded within a Yahoo redirection string. Huh? When you click on a listing at Yahoo, you're actually redirected through Yahoo's own servers and certain information embedded in the redirection URL is recorded. Nacho Hernandez spots some new one ones since I wrote about this last year and tries his own dissection in Stripping out the Guts of a Yahoo! Search URL at Search Engine Roundtable. Ideally, no one would have to dissect at all -- Yahoo would just explain what the codes mean. I asked last year, but no one ever got back on that particular question :). OK, I'll be asking again. Meanwhile, want to discuss or contribute? Visit our forum thread, Defining the Yahoo! Search URL Parameters.
