    Get rid of the ads, and focus on real news, not fashion, sports, gossip. Yahoo is currently looking more similar to a tabloid rag. Remove the non newsworthy items, which are 90% of your current content. You must have a bunch of puberty aged staff deciding what content to publish.

  2. Settings to turn off auto play videos

    Is there a way to turn off the videos that automatically play as I scroll through my news feed? It turns off the podcast or news I'm listening to. I want the choice whether to play a video even if it is cute dogs. This just started happening again, I don't know if it's a setting on my side or it was turned back on on your end. Thanks

  4. You are stealing ad revenue from advertisers by having links that misinterpret attempts to close the ad with attempts to follow the link

    You should improve the sensitivity of your X to close buttons on your ads, because when I attempt to close, I am invariably sent to the linked ad.i have no intent to follow the link or purchase any product or service. I believe this misinterpretation of my click is deliberately designed into the system, as it greatly increases the number of ads clicked, and thus the amount of advertising revenue that yahoo received from its ad customers. In my mind thus amounts to theft or fraud. I have already filed a report with the FTC notifying them of this practice.…

    Hi Brent,

    If this happens again can you please let us know what ad this is happening on so that we can investigate this? The Ad Name, Ad URL, and any additional info about the ad you can provide would be helpful.

    Regards,
    Homepage Support

  5. Shorter ads

    The video ads should be 15 seconds or less. When I see that an ad is 30 seconds I immediately leave the site and look for the video elsewhere.

  7. X-ing out articles we don't want to see...

    Yahoo, wouldn't it be cool if we could X out an article on the homepage like we used to with advertisements. For example, say we're tied of seeing the same Kardashian article over and over, we could X it out and then tell you we found it offensive, irrelevant, repetitive or just not interested. You stopped it for the ads but it may prove more relevant to the articles.

  8. Please remove Vivid Seats from advertisements! They are a scam company and have scammed many people.

    Please remove Vivid Seat from your advertising. They are a scam company they does not get your tickets to you, or willing to give your moneyback. The reason I used this company was because they popped up as one of the top advertisements on your site. Please investigate them and do the right thing.

  10. Quit the sponsored ads

    The mobile site has entirely TOO MANY sponsored ads that take over the website. I counted 63 today! Most are repeat ads for the same products. It's annoying and makes me want to quit using Yahoo! I understand why people are looking for other news sources. Yahoo has sold itself to the advertising gods & sacrificed user friendliness in the process. Also, the stupid click bait articles like Cheat Sheet are ruining the experience. Furthermore, the subscriber stories are ludicrous! Why would we pay to read another paragraph of a story when we can easily find another news story or…

    Please stop the video ads after I scroll by them. Obwviously if we scrolled past the first ad we r not interested. Does yahoo have a deal with cell providers to use data so we can be billed more?? Seems a bit fishy to me. Maybe this should be investigated. Costs the everyday person $$$ to see ads we weren’t interested in in the first place. Stop just trying to bring in more and more revenue for the shareholder and pretend like u give a **** about costing people $ for unwanted videos. And I’m not interested in some bs…

  13. fewer ads

    label ads more clearly and don't post so many. literally 20% of the content on your homepage is ads. I use Google now. Yahoo used to be my go-to, now it's celebrity fluff and **** that doesn't matter. and ads.
