Yahoo search engine results gradually reduced indexed paged of Arlingtoncards.com during 2005. Yahoo! at one time referred about 70 pages per day at the height of 2005, but by year’s end was only referring about 5-10 pages per day. While this dropoff occurred Google results increased steadily.
Many other search engines use Yahoo for their search results, so eventually a dropoff was observed in other search engines as well. A sudden dropoff was observed in MSN.com in December 2005.
One frustrated webdesigner wrote to the Yahoo! Search Blog staff on 12/15/05 about dropped results:
Many times the results bounce back, but Arlingtoncards.com is working to attain search engine optimization to recover from the cuurent Yahoo! failure.
