Yahoo! Site Explorer Updates

Posted on 10.18.2009

Finally, some signs of life from Yahoo Search!

Yahoo announced it has updated its Site Explorer to include new data (for page-level and site-level) including key terms, activities, top delicious tags and Search Monkey Objects. These additions come about one month after Yahoo added top queries and URLs to the tool.

At the page level, Site Explorer users will be able to see SearchMonkey object statistics. You will need to have marked up pages (or provided Yahoo with a feed that matches one of their existing SearchMonkey templates) but if you have your page will show all SearchMonkey objected that were indexed for that page.

Yahoo has also included Yahoo Search key terms and delicious bookmark information for pages, giving you a good way to explore all sort of metadata about your pages. Site Explorer now also provides a site-level dashboard that displays additional information, including the number of SearchMonkey feeds you submitted and a history of any custom actions you have requested for your site (such as defining URL query parameters that you want Yahoo to ignore).
