    Yahoo Local Listings Disappearing?

    Hey All,

    I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

    I know this is a rarely discussed local platform but I just wanted to notify everyone that some members on our team (Evan Entler, Josh Volk, and Alex Cordes) have found (what we hope) is a glitch with Yahoo Local listings being irrationally removed from accounts.

    Please reference the screenshot below:

    We have checked this across a large amount of Yahoo accounts and the local listings have seemingly disappeared in all of them. However, they are still showing on Yahoo Maps. Therefore, we hope this is just a 'glitch' or 'bug' with Yahoo right now.

    If anyone is seeing different please let us know. As always, I appreciate everyone's feedback and insight.

    Thanks again,
    Matt

    Wowza! I'm seeing the same thing.

    Hopefully a bug.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Whoa! Thanks for letting us know Matt.

    I never deal with Yahoo, so in Google language, are you saying the listings are missing in the dashboard - just plain gone? But the listings are still live?

    Re: Yahoo Local Listings Disappearing?

    In Google language that's exactly right, Linda.

    I just received this message from Yahoo:

    "Sorry for the confusion Colan, we do actually have an issue impacting our Marketing Dashboard customers. When customers log in their My Businesses page is showing No Businesses. This is an issue we are aware of and are currently working to resolve. Updates to this issue will be posted on the http://ysmallbizstatus.com page."

    Looks like a bug.

    Sorry for the delay. But yes, Linda, you are exactly right. Looks like Colan's on the ball! Thanks for sharing the update and dialogue you had with Yahoo!

    Everything seems to be back to normal in the Yahoo Local Dash.

    Is everything back to normal on your end?

    Re: Yahoo Local Listings Disappearing?

    Hi All!

    I have seen this happen to one of my clients as well. However it seems like all of Yahoo! Local is down now as far as the dashboard goes? I've tried logging into a a few of my clients' accounts and each time I click on My Businesses in the dashboard, I get a "The page cannot be displayed" and that it is currently unavailable.

    It seems like Yahoo! Local has reverted back to the old dashboard when you are here: Yahoo! Local Features Overview. When you click on Local Listing Account Center (what is My Businesses in the new dashboard), you are sent to the page that cannot be displayed.

    Most likely a bug in the system...not sure if this has anything to do with the missing local listings either. Wanted to see if anybody else was experiencing this.

    Thanks!
    Rachel

    Nice catch. Yes, looks like another bug.

    I'll see if I can find anything out.
