Yahoo Announces Changes In Algorithm

Yahoo confirmed Friday that the changes noted by others had been in the works for a few days and would continue for a few more.

“We’ve rolled out some changes to our index with fresh web data and updates to our crawling, indexing, and ranking algorithms over the last few days. We have had two updates since last November: one in December, 2008, and another in late January this year. We expect the update will be completed very soon. Throughout this process you may see some changes in ranking as well as some shuffling of the pages in the index,” Yahoo blogger Sharad Verma announced.
