    I was looking across all my sites in RankRanger and i have to scroll past Yahoo before i look at Google. But I kept noticed that 80% of my sites have jumped in Yahoo this morning. Like 10 out of 12 core keywords increased to the first page. I've no idea why this happened though.

    Oh also i thought it might be worth pointing out that i've been working on anchor text ratios for a site hit by Penguin, some keywords returned to page one and two this morning, which could indicate a Penguin refresh.

    Good for you. Don't underestimate the power of Yahoo/Bing. It's not gonna make you rich but it can certainly help.

    I'm counting 95% of all sites which I record Yahoo in RankRanger have increased every single core keywords in Yahoo. Some over 200 positions straight to the first page.

    Certainly something weird going on. I see some Google rankings moving positively too.

    Can you guys check your own rankings in yahoo and report back?

    Ye, I've seen a massive difference in Bing and Yahoo rankings this morning. I have a site which was only ranking for 3 of its 7 main keywords now ranking high for all 7 in Bing and 6 in Yahoo. Also seen a nice raise in G keywords too.
