Hi, please let us know how we can improve your Search experience.

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Advanced Search!

    Freakin bring back advanced search. If you aren't going to allow quotes around something to only find that thing, you need to bring back advanced search. Stop spamming results that don't apply

      hi
      I am placing browsers for my child *********** not see but the site warns that is locked and is very easy to remove it could have a password protection otherwise serves no blocking

      I hope my suggestion is useful for many parents who care about the content they see our children

        Hi Paolo,

        Thank you for your feedback!

        The lock on SafeSearch is intended to protect the setting from being changed by younger users of the browser (i.e. a family account on the family computer). Once the lock has been set, the user has to log out of their Yahoo session, and anyone using that browser after will not be able to change the SafeSearch setting, unless they log back in with an adult account.

        Here is an article that we have on this topic:

        Thank you again for your feedback – we are listening!

              Hi there,

              There is a self-service process to submit corrections to Yahoo! Local business search results, a process that needs to be taken by the business owner and involves that individual claiming the listing – once the listing is claimed, edits to the listing can be made.

              Within this brief article, the process is explained:

              http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&y=PROD_LOCAL&locale=en_US&id=SLN2783

              Thank you for your interest in keeping Yahoo listings accurate!

            • what happened to the advanced search menu?

              when I use google, they provide me with an advanced search menu. Yahoo Search use to have this same feature but I no longer see it on the right side of the screen. Rather than learn the various search parameters, I just use the menu on Google. But I prefer not to use Google so I hope to see it back on Yahoo
