You are now required to sign-in using your Yahoo email account in order to provide us with feedback and to submit votes and comments to existing ideas. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

Hi, please let us know how we can improve your Search experience.

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

            • When I search from an Ireland Yahoo site it should allow me to select Irish sites

              When I search from an Ireland Yahoo site it should allow me to select Irish sites as priority. At the moment when I do a search it automatically goes to .com or co.uk sites? no good when your looking for local items you should be able to select ,ie preference
              .

              • new tab is focused after Ctrl

                Until your last site update, I can click with Ctrl key on any link and new tab will be opened, but focus stay on the result page. Please give me back this feature (it's expected behaviour). Thanks

                • How about bringing back the UK site only button. Sick of getting results from US companies.

                  Have a search filter that gives only UK website rather than both US and UK. will stop so much useless clutter that seems to be Yahoo's feature.

                    • Stop the drop down suggestions in a search, it covers all the top results and renders Yahoo absolutely useless!

                          • Searches, Contact, Email

                            On any search you provide 50-70+ pages of URL's, unless the person is famous, the majority of these pages do not have any relevance at all. You include listings simply because people share one name, shouldn't their other names sift them out, so that only the relevant searches are displayed? Many of your listings are dead links, you should have a dead links report form, or improve your bot, some of them have been listed for years. It would be okay if the relevant searches were the first ones, but often this is not the case, sometimes relevant listings are…

                            • Pulverising defunk mobile phones is wasteful: they contain gold which charities would love to have. I wish you'd stop doing it.

                              OK I'm a spoilsport but I'd like you to take the moral high ground and give away fewer prizes than the current tens of thousands' worth and donate the balance to local schools and/or communities for tech

                                  • Why do you keep changing your formats! Now you have changed to an AWFUL layout for the football reviews, bring back the OLD format

                                    Go back to the old NEWS and SPORTS formats. Whoever designed the new football layout should be sacked. STOP KEEP ALTERING FORMATS when there is nothing wrong with the old ones !!!

                                    • if you can't view previous posts you've made how can you have a meaningful debate?

                                      if we are not able to easily search and view our previous posts, it becomes impossible to hold a meaningful debate about anything. If you cannot look up your posts and view other peoples comments on them how can you challenge ideas and rectify your own ideas if you find you are wrong? The new format is closing down debate when it should be promoting it. Please return to the old format or simply enable us to easily find our posts, check the responses and reply appropriately.

                                      • why do you oblige me to have a 2nd email account and then close it down because I don't use it.

                                        for security reasons yahoo requires a second email account in case you have a problem with the main one. I don't need 2 accounts, and I don't use it so every once in a while I get advised that they (yahoo) have closed my account because it is inactive...and then I have to make up a new account. Why do you do this? This is a waste of time.
