Yahoo Releases Search Index Update

Yahoo has announced its latest search index update. So, if you see a change up in your rankings, now you know why. But earlier news of new crawling abilities for Adobe Flash don’t appear to be part of this update. Instead, expect to see those updates in the future.

“Yahoo! is committed to supporting webmaster needs with plans to support searchable SWF and is working with Adobe to determine the best possible implementation,” said Sean Suchter, vice president Yahoo! Search Technology Engineering.

Yahoo’s last update occurred on May 28, 2008.
