  6. When you search for "Parish Lane Vet" the first hit that appears is "Parish Lane Vet | MayowVets.co.uk". This is misleading "Parish Lane Vet

    When you search for "Parish Lane Vet" the first hit that appears is "Parish Lane Vet | MayowVets.co.uk". This is misleading "Parish Lane Vet Surgery" is a different business to MayowVets. MayowVets is not even in Parish Lane. This cost me money and my injured cat was transferred to the wrong vet after an injury as a result. Can you please sort this out.

  8. Dump of MDN

    You have own copies of Wikipedia data, e.q. If I need to know who is the next husband of Avril Lavigne, just white her name into Yahoo Search Box.

    I want the same functionality for Webmasters, specially for Javascript. On the same place of results page as Wiki data now.
    The source of informations: MDN - Mozilla Developer Network, for example

    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Node/replaceChild

    Start with Array functions (e.g. map, find), then EC6 (e.g. let, arrow functions) and also old functions (e.g. replace child).

    * 1 sentence of explanation with returned value (Object, array, item, string ...)

    * easy code as example…

  11. Your home page is ridiculously slow in loading and has been for some time as are the pages that you link to re ads and features etc..

    Your home page is ridiculously slow in loading and has been for some time. It takes forever before I am able to insert text into the search box

  12. post only those casinos where the roulette games are not illegally fixed

    All system players are illegally stopped by roulette games where the bet is known in advance and the result is fixed to ensure we lose. Stop it from being allowed, it is illegal

  13. Respect quotation marks and provide exact-matching results

    Yahoo does not respect quotation marks around a search phrase whereas Google does. So even when I put quotation marks around the phrase Yahoo does not just provide exact-matching results but all sorts of variations. But I often need to get exact matching results and I really hope Yahoo respects quotation marks.

  14. Improve the Search Engine.

    The results you make from a search for example: Dubai Sports TV, disappointingly yields unrelated results like Accommodation.

    Try to improve accuracy of results.

  16. It would be nice to stop placing articals in the main page from the telegraph newspaper as you can not read them and then they want money

    It would be nice to stop placing articals in the main page from the telegraph newspaper as you can not read them and then they want money all the time and this is not reporting the news it is helping the telegraph make money.
    News articles by yahoo should be free if I want to join the telegraph I will search for them myself.

  18. Use strict Boolean search operators as you used to do.

    A simple phrase search no longer brings up results strictly including the phrase. It brings up results where the words in the phrase are next to each other including punctuation.

    This is frustrating and wastes users' time in wading through pages of irrelevant results. This is sloppy programming.
