  1. Change the date range for searches beyond 1 month.

    Change the date range for searches beyond 1 month. I'm removing Yahoo as my default search engine because of this. I don't have this problem when searching on Google, I can specify any date range I want.

      Hi Jason,

      Thank you for your feedback. To clarify, are you referring to the “Anytime”, “Past day/week/month” options for time filtering on the search results page?

      Thanks,

    • allow a bad review to be removed.

      I'm trying to remove bad feedback for the company that my wife and I manage. The previous managers did the company and customers wrong. How can we get it changed?

                • Galesburg Academy of Martial Arts

                  As the owner of this business I am puzzled at how a search on Google and Bing has our correct information but Yahoo does not. Our phone number is 309-299-5845 and has been for 11 years. I have no idea where 309-343-2900 came from on one of the listings.

                  We are located at 1960 North Henderson St Galesburg Il 61401.

                  I am available to verify all the correct information.

                    • Your local search results do not match the updated listings in Yahoo Small business.

                      We have updated listings on Yahoo Small BUsiness, and they were approved back in January, but these changes still do not show up in your Local Search Results. Example: https://local.yahoo.com/info-171824357-newsound-hearing-aid-centers-sugar-land;_ylt=AwrBEiGCPKxUOD4AnkbumYlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTBtcGNmMWIyBGNvbG8DYmYxBHZ0aWQDBHQxcG9zAzE-
                      Address and website was updated in dashboard, but still incorrect in search results. Thanks.

                      • I have not figured out why Yahoo does not put the pertinent articles on Yahoo news as the first response to any yahoo query.

                        I was searching for an article on yahoo about the death of Leonard Nimoy. I know that Yahoo! News posted such an article because I can see it in my facebook newsfeed. Why do articles from nearly every other news site but Yahoo pop up when I search. Yahoo seems to be putting a lot of money into its news division, shouldn't it attempt to drive viewers there? I am willing to work as a consultant on the cheap too.

                            • Add an option to turn off the automatic search suggestions

                              The search suggestions are more than an unwanted distraction. When I type in my search argument and press enter, there is always a default suggestion that fills into the box so most of the time I have to perform the search a second time to receive my original intended result.

                              Someone needs to teach Ms. Mayer that something which is unbroken doesn't need to be repaired, and also, making changes for the sole purpose of making changes usually produces a negative result.

                              Her haphazard and piece meal approach to both changing what was already very good and implementing what is…

                                  • For one your algorithm sucks. If I am looking for a classical guitar I am not looking for the Walmart of Classical Guitars=a Guitar Central

                                    The best classical guitar site on Google and Yahoo by far is Guitars International. They have the finest in guitars. Any of these websites that use Nylon String Guitars is laughable. A professional classical guitarist and even a student of classical guitars would not use the term Nylon String Guitar. That shows the algorithm lacks the correct understanding of the subject matter. Guitars International has better quality guitars, more information on Classical guitars, Classical Guitarists, Classical Guitar makers known as Luthiers for those that are as ignorant as your algorithm and he has great articles on French Guitar Polishing and…

                                    • Video Thumbnail results

                                      The thumbnails of video results are all lined up vertically instead of the rows going across horizontally. Please revert it the way it should be displayed as it is more organized and easier to navigate on which video to choose.
