  1. Links to my registrtion site are incorrect.

    Search results link to the wrong page of a registration site instead of the main home page when doing a search on Yahoo. Should be linking to http://toolreg.servicesolutionsportal.com/ Instead it will bring customers to http://toolreg.servicesolutionsportal.com/server/authcuststartupdatecheckDB.html and this will not work for them.

    • 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.

            • Yahoo relevancy indexing of sites is terrible

              My idea is to change your algorithms as when I use Yahoo Search (which is rare to be honest) the sites which get listed are for the most part are 2nd tier in importance and relevancy to my search terms. I am a professional researcher so I know my business. Unfortunately I am heavily invested in Verizon which was the reason I was considering using Yahoo instead of Google. Anyhow, maybe Verizon will make some 'relevant' changes. excuse the pun. M

                      • Im looking for my company in search. It would be nice if the same companies didn't come up page after page after page

                        Let some other companies get in the first 10 pages of a search instead of the same sites coming up on every single page. Every page of my search for cnc routers has the same 4 or 5 companies dominating each page.

                          • Beat Wikipedia to their "Knowledge Engine"

                            Seeing as Wikipedia are taking so long to develop it, why not trial a proof-of-concept of the idea? I'd happen to prefer using a "knowledge engine" over a standard search engine.

                            I envision it as searching under different "lenses"... different contexts for searches, with differet sources depending on the lens.

                            So lets say you are doing a search for medical information. The term activates a "Medical lens"... This offers a wikipedia page with a blurb, along with a page from a medically qualified site with a more detailed blurb. Most people would probably click one of those two links... But…

                                  Removed a cover but needle came off inside it, the third time in the past three months. Have to use a pliers to remove some which neither I or my wife can remove.
