  1. Suppress useless results by state

    Try suppressing Charleston SC results when the search is for Charleston WV. I lose so much time clicking on SC results that are no use to me. And I suppose it's vice versa for SC residents. Or at a minimum, make the state visible in the search results list, so you don't have to click to find out it's not what you're looking for.

  2. search features

    Search for a specific website gives listing with too much high-ranked irrelevant results.
    Search result(s) needs to not be a function of who pays the most for a higher ranking, when results are not relevant to the Boolean seach entry.

  3. Make NIGHT MODE available on your site. All the white hurts my eyes.

    You need dark background option. It's 2022 why don't you have this already. Only reason why i still use google is because the have night mode. Yahoo has better search results but I can't stand the bright background so I stay with google. Please make night mode an option

  4. search duplicate results

    I think maybe you have a pagination issue or not clearing variables issue perhaps. When you search anything at all, like Husky dog breed for example, results come up on page 1. If you click on page 2, some of the same results that were on page 1 also appear on page 2 and they are not ads, although ads do appear a lot. One example is the husky wikipedia page, the same exact result on page 1 and page 2. As you click more pages further in the problem is the same with barely any new results showing up.

  5. BIASED IMAGES

    I searched IMAGES for an example of an HIV Patient and got almost exclusively black photos of HIV patients. I thought this was EXTREMELY RACIST considering the fact that HIV and AIDS is a disease that affects people of all races and nationalities. This was in keeping with the racist view that AIDS is a black disease. I was highly offended. This is 2022. This making black people the face of every disease and problem known to man is wrong and needs to stop!

  6. Web addresses within search results

    The web addresses used to show up under the searches. After an update they are gone - Can I get them back? Searching is very difficult and inefficient without them.
    " internet address below the search results title. "

  8. Gender disparity for search term

    According to this article (https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2017/03/06/chart-the-percentage-women-and-men-each-profession/GBX22YsWl0XaeHghwXfE4H/story.html), the women to men ratio for models is approximately 2:1, but male models are rarely to be found for the query "model".

  9. Gifs not animating in Yahoo Sear results

    Using Samsungs internet browser on mobile, gifs no longer animate when you preview them in an image search on yahoo. This wasn't always like this. Samsung confirmed it was a problem on yahoo's end.

    How do we solve this?

  11. GIFS are not animating in Yahoo mage search results

    This began months ago, but I used to be able to do an image search of gifs, click on them, and they'd animate like gifs down prior to me choosing to download them or not. This was on my Samsung Galaxy. I wrote them and they told me it was a problem with Yahoo and not on there end. Sure enough, when I do an image search on Google on my Samsung Galaxy, the gifs animate/move as they are supposed to.

    What is the problem or change that produce this, then, on Yahoo's end?

  15. Inappropriate auto-complete sentence for searching "chinese people"

    After keying in "chinese people" in the search bar, the second highest recommended auto-complete query returns "Chinese people eating dogs". This seems rather stereotypical and inappropriate. It would be great if someone can take a look at it!

  16. Searching "leaders" yields mostly (if not all) male leaders at top

    When I search for the term "leaders", yahoo's image search results feature world-renowned leaders who are mostly male. It would be appropriate to see either more women representation at the top of the rankings, or less association with gender all together.

  18. Random number generator

    It would be great to have "RAND x y" typed into the search bar yield a random number between x and y. Duck.com has this feature and I like Yahoo better but would love to have it (seems simple enough). Thanks!
