Weather Report: Yahoo! Search update

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 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.

This is the first update after the launch of Dynamic URL Rewriting in
Site Explorer. We've had millions of URLs rewritten based on your
submissions and your sites should have seen smarter crawling from
Yahoo! Slurp as a result. You will see further benefits in how your
site is represented in the index from this update. Your input improves
relevance and coverage for users in search results, particularly in
relation to your site.

Thank you for collaborating with us to improve our understanding of
your site. If you haven't yet, login and try out the feature to
authenticate your sites.

Keep the feedback coming..
