26312Re: [Y-Mail] Yahoo Now Screwing Around With Yahoo Searches
- Nov 3 6:30 PMNormally, my search engine of choice is ask.com. But, I tried yahoo this time and typed your search words into the search field. The results page showed several ads related to New Zealand Libraries; but, there were also several actual links to articles or sites related to New Zealand Libraries. There were at least 4 pages; with the same ad links on each page. However, I did not click through all of the pages. Even ask.com gives me ad links in addition to search results. It's all part of having a free search engine.

At the top of the Neo email pages is a search box for searching emails or the web. Just now I entered a search such as "New Zealand Libraries" - I wanted to search their online archives catalogues. The result was a simple four item list - of sponsored sites only. I expected hundreds of results. In other words Yahoo had deliberately switched off a search for ALL websites, but was only offering sponsored results - four in all. I could find no way of switching the search back to include all sites. I tried the same thing with a Google search and got the full list of site that I expected. WTF is going on at Yahoo? CJB. P.S. From my Gmail account due to Yahoo Neo FF continually refusing to allow me to compose new emails.
