The Yahoo Search Blog defines which queries will be redirected from Yahoo Search to Yahoo Site Explorer. Remember on July 11th when we reported that Yahoo Tests Redirecting Some Searches To Site Explorer? So which queries exactly do this? Queries in the format of site:ysearchblog.com or link:http://www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000341.html or linkdomain:ysearchblog.com but not ysearchblog.com or ysearchblog or site:ysearchblog.com webmasters (looking for ysearchblog posts mentioning webmasters) or link:http://www.ysearchblog.com/archives/000341.html Danny Sullivan (looking for links to the article mentioning Danny Sullivan) or or linkdomain:ysearchblog.com site:yahoo.com (looking for links to ysearchblog from within yahoo.com).
