A Nip & Tuck for Yahoo Site Explorer

I’ll admit, I only ever use Yahoo Site Explorer when I want to check out a web site’s backlinks. If you’re not aware, YSE will show backlinks in pretty much the order of authority (unlike Google).

Well, it appears I may soon have reason to use YSE for more than just snooping.

Today, we launched a new look and feel for Site Explorer ( that provides a more dynamic interface to accommodate future feature roll-outs. The new interface also includes a new Site Summary page to provide statistics for authenticated sites. On top of this, we’re also increasing the number of rules for Dynamic URL Rewriting that you can enter from 3 to 10.

You have to click the above URL to see the new interface–at least while they test it for feedback. Don’t want to waste the click? Here’s how it looks:

I know the folks over at Yahoo Search are always spying on reading Marketing Pilgrim, so leave a comment with any features you’d like to see added to Yahoo Site Explorer.

    I also use yahoo site explorer to check for my links and I find it very useful. When i was starting and google wont show any links for me, i tried YSE and I am very happy to see all the blogs and site i have linked with in the list.With the new look and feature, i will surely be more becoming an avid fan of YSE.

    Yahoo site explorer is not that famous with me either. I just use it to check my backlinks as it updates frequently and that’s the best thing about yahoo siteexplorer.

    I neglect YPN’s services a lot and maybe I shouldn’t.
    Beta has been improved on in at least one aspect.
    Before it took up to 24 hours to approve a site, but now it’s immediate.
    But you still need to manually update your site feeds though.
