  1. Business listing has residential/personal phone number listed! Please remove ASAP!

    The business listing for Firestone Complete Auto Care at 3549 E Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA has AN INCORRECT RESIDENTIAL/PERSONAL PHONE NUMBER on the business listing. This business has been closed and no longer exists! A resident has been receiving MANY phone calls at her residence at all hours of the day and needs her personal phone number (626) 844-4601 removed from Yahoo as soon as possible. Here is a link to the listing with the wrong phone number: https://search.yahoo.com/local/s;_ylt=A0LEVzrk8r1Y.sYAGvNXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTExZzQ0YmY1BGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDVUlDMV8xBHNlYwNzYw--?p=firestone+complete+auto+care&addr=Pasadena%2C+CA&loc=woeid%3A2468964&selectedId=25750648&fr=yfp-t

    • Yahoo! Search advertising is out of control

      Sure, I understand the need to generate revenue, but really?

      Just today I was interested in the history of Moville, Ireland. Since I was already at Yahoo!, I used Yahoo! Search. The results were a disaster.

      Search terms: moville ireland

      The first page returned 16 search results. Of those, 9 were for hotels (hint: If I'd wanted hotels, I would have included it in the search terms): Booking.com (4), Tripadvisor (4) and Agoda.com (1). The top two results, one each for Booking.com and Tripadvisor, were so expansive, I had to scroll down just to find the first (and only) useful…

      • I do not like it when I click on one item and 2-4 different videos play at the same time.

        I do not like it when I click on one story from your home pave and 2-4 different (audio) videos play at the same time. I find this feature most distracting and I will begin to look for other search engines to use.

          • show the right rating on your searches

            Search for Roosevelt Inn Philadelphia. Your search shows either trivago or trip adviser and assigns a 4 star rating but when you go to either site, it's a 2 star at best. Why would you show the wrong rating? Just trying to help.

            • showing results

              Would it not be an improvement if an option of YELLOW ( or pink etc0 highlight could be switched on, if desired, along with an extended list of hits (say 20, 50, 100, 200) per shown page - to ease browsing? Thank you for your attention.

              • Yahoo brand violation

                There are sites, that misuse your brand to provide some fraudulent advertising such as
                http://yahoo.com-official-news.net/slovakia/sk/svitko/v1/

                Moreover, this illegal site also violates the rights of the person portrayed in it as it is a public figure in Slovak Republic (the Dakar racer Stefan Svitko).

                Hopefully you will address this issue on your behalf.

                Thank you!

I believe your company is putting the wrong map (location) of many small businesses & Individuals across the (USA) Incorrect map locations is dangerous to all that my need. Fire , Ambulance , Law enforcement , There are many stories to the fact that first RESPONDERS could not find the address. Because of the wrong placement of MAPS ON YAHOO & GOOGLE

                                        • Sheriff's Office Contact Information is INCOREECT

                                          The address and phone number for the Harvey County Sheriff's Office should ONLY be listed as 120 E. 7th Street Newton, KS 67114 and 316-284-6960 The other addresses and phone numbers listed are to other businesses and departments within our community. They are getting very frusterated with the internet search engines providing incorrect information for a government agency. Please fix this!
