    I’m assuming this also means that crawls from slurp will disappear.

    One can only hope that Slurp vanishes from the Web.

    Reuben, it does not mean that. Mostly but Yahoo said they still will use Slurp on selective sites for richer search result usage.

    I know it doesn’t have that large of an index, but Blekko provides link data.

    I will miss Site Explorer. I use SEOMoz, but still instinctively go to Site Explorer for link data. Thanks for the update.

    Loved YSE, will miss it, but the backlink data party from the engines has been on last call for a while. You could watch the data getting less and less useful as years went by. Also, I have a really strong hunch something wicked this way comes. Wicked as in good. That’s all I can say.

    I loved using YSE along with SEOmoz. It was great to be able to use both of these tools. Sad to see it go.
