As the index receives another round of tweaks at Yahoo, the search gurus there managed to fix an annoying Site Explorer issue.

Yahoo disclosed the latest update taking place for its search engine today. Priyank Garg and Sharad Verma said on the Yahoo Search blog they were rolling out various changes to their algorithms.

Crawling, indexing, and ranking should all see changes over the next few days. The post comes a day ahead of another announcement, Yahoo’s Q1 2008 financials, which takes place April 22 after market close.

Part of the update included a fix for an issue being reported by several webmasters to Yahoo. Some encountered problems deleting URLs from Yahoo’s Site Explorer.

Garg wrote that the issue in question has been fixed. As always when a search engine drops some updates into its secret sauce, rankings for sites may have changed. Site publishers should check in to Yahoo over the next few days to see if their websites endured any such changes.

    Yahoo site explorer got some good features for the webmasters. It is especially useful for checking backlinks since google doen’t show the backlinks properly.
    But I highly doubt the algo changes in yahoo will take them to a position to compete with google.
