Yahoo once a close friend of google has started hiding total backlinks, when I did a search on yahoo I saw the total backlink count a little lesser than what it used to.
I used to do a lot of checks on yahoo .
Google on one hand has started expanding its lucrative Internet advertising network into the print world and on the other is testing a new SERP with multiple stage display. Is google going complex, I prefer google mainly due to its simple layout. I will prefer a simpler one rather than an AI based layout complicating my thoughts. I guess print media will give the PPC partners more mileage and click fraud free ad campaigning option.
MSN, the bills search engine is offering some new searching options and also new start.com.
Let the battle continue.
