The latest changes to Yahoo’s search engine should be wrapping up soon, the company said on the Yahoo Search blog.

The weather report from Yahoo Search has been tempestuous recently. But the skies should be clearing soon.

Yahoo has been undergoing another update to the search system. This follows their Search Assist debut in early October.

But as we’ve heard many times, no good deed goes unpunished, and it appears the Yahoo Search team didn’t get to have their dessert after dinner. Yahoo acknowledged issues with their Site Explorer last week regarding inlinks, and have been working on the problem.

A broader update has been taking place as well, as the team noted on the Yahoo Search blog:

Over the last few days, we’ve been rolling out some changes to our crawling, indexing and ranking algorithms. While we expect the update will be completed soon, as you know, throughout this process you may see some ranking changes and page shuffling in the index.

We think everyone will be happy just to see the inlinks working as normal again.
