  1. some links doesn't open and instead requests mobile phone info

    Hi, when clicking a link related with my search, link doesn't open and facing with a mobile phone info request...Very...Interesting...

    You must obey to laws and never do anything against them. You may not collect personal data as you like.

    You may face some "unexpected" results in the future like google, facebook and others...

    Just an "early warning" from one of your "product user"...

  5. start placing ads in a professional manner that will give the ads more meaning and readership. Do something incentivize pmr omyp

    stop with the annoying ads and approach ad placement in a more professional manner. Blocking content that one is interesting in reading is not going to do anything but turn people against viewing ads. I myself learned a long time ago all one has to do is right the advertiser at their headquarters. I have in the past actually gotten responses from companies.

  7. When searching for MLBB, it should pertain to Mobile Legends: Bang Bange

    MLBB is the game Mobile Legends: Bang Bange and not MLB. They are different.

  8. Your search results said, 16,000,000 results

    And yet, YOUR search results for the first 6 pages were the exact same results as the previous pages...then you got off into other subjects and things that had nothing to do with what I searched for. You could be specific if you wanted to....a little more programming on the browser...I search for Marlin,MODEL XT-22MTR, for sale and you cannot provide me with one link to someone who has any for sale. I can find sold ones, pictures of some but nothing available...; this feedback access to you is also a problem...I accept cookies and you say I don't...I am…

  9. Some racial insensitivity

    Definitely an issue. Searching for "Chief Seattle" turned up a page full of results, but included in the upper right a picture of Bill Gates, next to the words "Chief Seattle Duwamish chief." I'm sure someone thought they were being funny, but it's a bit insensitive to replace the picture of an Indian leader with the picture of a white industrialist. I don't care to make a big stink, but I would like a reply to know that the picture has been corrected.

  10. Yahoo lost touch with reality when providing search results

    searching for something specific is ridiculous...looking for images of a personal check, I get pictures of students, crowds of people and people with smiles on their faces. When wanting some bookkeeping information used when cashing a check, I get pictures of crowds of people in a mall, people on the street, people at a meeting....
    regardless of how specific I might be for a search, I often get links to totally unrelated information or images....you aren't even close...it isn't even a word association...you miss the ball park completely

  14. search yields address that is permanently closed

    In effort to go to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Camp Hill, PA, I did a search. The address that came up in my yahoo search is a location that is permanently closed. It needs to be updated in the search engine so more people don't go to the wrong location like I did. Former address: 3903 Hartzdale Dr., Camp Hill. Correct, updated location: 216 Skyline Drive MECHANICSBURG, Pennsylvania 17050-1754 United States. Can you discontinue the old default address?

  19. Search for term in News exactly how I spell it.

    Why doesn't your site give me the option that if the site thinks I misspelled a word to go ahead and search using the "misspelled" word. I am searching using my surname Kiker. Yahoo thinks I am looking for kicker. Why can't I click, "no, I meant Kiker?"
