OK SEO’s we need your help. We knew this day was coming and now it’s here.

Yahoo’s Site Explorer is closed as of today with this clinical sounding post from the Yahoo search blog:

With the completion of algorithmic transition to Bing, Yahoo! Search has merged Site Explorer into Bing Webmaster Tools. Webmasters should now be using the Bing Webmaster Tools to ensure that their websites continue to get high quality organic search traffic from Bing and Yahoo!. Site Explorer services will not be available from November 21, 2011.

So the question now becomes “What will be your “go to” source for link information?” What engines out there will still help your efforts? What are your favorite third party tools to get this work done? Had you already pushed Site Explorer to the wayside?

Its the end of an era but SEO goes on. What are you doing about it?

  • Folks – Linkdex just went freemium – if you want link information that’s curated into blogs. wiki’s, news, directories, social and resource and with spam screened out here you – with a built in link building CRM that’s second to none.

  • please suggest instead of yahoo site explorer ………………………… as is being the best for the SEO

  • I got no idea pal, i used site explorer to get the real deal on my backlinks cause all those junk free ones dont show all the backlinks you really have. daaaam!!

  • I actually wonder, why yahoo site explorer closed? That sucks. Hope link builder now trying with backlink checker or link diagnosis sites. Thanks for your info.
