Post Yahoo apolcolypse: how are you?

So after Yahoo.co.jp's reset of the algorithm many of us saw our 1st page rankings disappear and adsense earnings disappear along with it.

So how are you doing now? On most days my earnings are 1/3 of what they were and on high volume days maybe 50% of peak. I notice a few of my channels are creeping back on the radar which signals some upward movement on the index. Have to check further. Anyone else?

Re: Post Yahoo apolcolypse: how are you?

Yep traffic levels down to less than half what they were before on Japanese sites. It wasn't that much before, but clicks are down as result of this decreased traffic. Bummer, but totally fair I think. I had some crappy little one-page sites that were doing nicely in Yahoo, but really didn't deserve to be ranked as high as some competing ASCII sites.

My newer small sites, around 5 or 6 pages each seem to have been indexed in more conventional style. They are ranked so low in some cases I can't find them, but I'm hoping they creep upwards over time. The free ride is over....

Is this really an algo change or just a flat penalty on idns?

Re: Post Yahoo apolcolypse: how are you?

It has nothing to do with IDNs. The ranking derived from URL match has been drastically down=graded.

Of course this makes little sense and the URL ranking will be restored, when Yahoo have got their head around things.

Yes of course but in the short-term rely on an IDN as a silver bullet is not going to work.

Similar scenario with a slow creep up the ranks .. I am experimenting with updating content on one of two very similar sites to see if it makes a difference, nothing conclusive yet

The effects are really not harsh enough to be considered a flat penalty on idns. It's inconsistent.

Genius? How are you doing after the reset?
