Yahoo Updates Search Algorithm, Fixes Delete URL Bug

Recently, search marketers have been noticing changes to Yahoo rankings. And now, Yahoo has plans to roll out updates to its crawling, indexing and ranking algorithms, as reported on the Yahoo Search Blog. Expect to see the changes unfold over the next few days as the updates are rolled out.

Yahoo also took the opportunity to announce a fix to the Delete URL function on its Site Explorer tool. Previously, some search marketers were experiencing problems with submitted URLs remaining on “pending” status for a bit too long.
