Expect the Yahoo Search Blog to make a blog post announcing a weather report sometime today or tomorrow. As I reported at the Search Engine Roundtable a couple hours ago, there are reports of Yahoo Search updating the index and search results. This is a typical sign of a “weather report” coming from the Yahoo Search Blog.
Many of the early reports discuss major increases in search traffic from Yahoo. I have yet to see people complaining about the update – so this is early signs of a positive update. The last Yahoo Search update was just about a month ago, in August.
Postscript: Yahoo announced the update, a day later, as expected.
