    • 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:

          https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN2247.html?impressions=true

          Thank you again for your feedback – we are listening!

                  • Yext is not thorough

                    To whom it may concern,
                    I have a listing on Yahoo for my company which is wrong The wrong listing is:

                    Seize the Day Chair Massage
                    1007 Mo Pac Cir, Ste 202
                    Austin, TX 78746
                    (512) 327-2284

                    We are no longer at the above address. We have moved to:

                    Seize the Day Chair Massage Services
                    3530 Bee Caves Road, Ste 204
                    Austin, TX 78746
                    (512) 327-2284

                    I paid Yext $449.00 to change our listing, but all they did was create a new listing and leave the old one intact. This can be very confusing/frustrating to people who are looking to…

                        • hire intelligent writers and editors

                          How about if you hire people who actually graduated from a real college and can use adjectives other than "jaw dropping". Also have news stories rather than catch phrases by websites looking to draw you into their collection of partial sentence photos

                            • Local results with false business names, keyword stuffing.

                              Please make it a requirement for local businesses to use their ACTUAL NAME in their local listings, and start removing ones which do not.

                              I'm tired of seeing businesses called "Dallas Car Accident & Injury Doctors and Attorneys" or "Affordable Plumbing 24/7 in Dallas TX," etc. They literally looks like ads, and you're losing trust with users.

                                    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!

                                          I live in Howell NJ My searches keep coming up Howell MI. This has been getting worse over time. I used to be able to spell New Jersey and that would fix it, but not today. This occurs on your map which pinpoints the local businesses. The individual results seem to operate correctly.
