Yahoo Using Inktomi Now.
Posted 17 December 2003 - 09:34 PM
this is my first post so forgive me if it is the wrong place or already posted elsewhere. I just noticed that Yahoo is using Inktomi results can anyone else confirm?
If this is the case, I am through optimizing for google. I have a #2 for my KW on Inktomi (now also Yahoo ) and have been removed from google completely. I think I will now concentrate my efforts on Yahoo and MSN.

Here my results on the 3 search engines (top 2 results only) for my keywords "san diego vacation rentals"
for sure yahoo is using inktomi results, the question is just what is the extent?
Google (irrelavant results )

I'm sure it's only a matter of time (and not much time) before they make the switch for all of us.
But this is interesting: if you click the "What's this?" link next to the "web results" you get this piece of info:
No mention of specific search engines.
These results are a combination of relevant web pages and web sites included in the Yahoo! Directory or within other search engines used by Yahoo!. The total number of matching pages we found appears next to the Web Results label.

That is correct.
Can I assume you're in the San Diego area?

I have however heard that in the UK Y! have switched to Ink completely....(?)....& was speculated that rest of Y! may switch by Feb...?
PS: During the Florida update, my SERP on Y! varied completely from Google - they may have been testing Ink then....but now its back to Google

Not so for Yahoo, but MSN UK has.

But it's a strange Y!, it has never shown any sponsored listings!

It must not be based on region, but IP, or cookie. Does anyone know what the name of the Yahoo cookie is, could not find one with Yahoo in it? I am going to try to delete it and see if i still get the Inktomi results.

After deleteing the attached cookie, Yahoo returned to google results.
