Yahoo! Site Explorer Shutting Down

| |

As part of its algorithmic transition to Bing, Yahoo! shut down Site Explorer on Monday November 21, 2011; webmasters can now access Site Explorer services using the Bing Webmaster Tools

A "beloved" SEO tool, Yahoo Site Explorer launched in late 2005 and offered detailed link information for competitors. According to Search Engine Land, while Bing Webmaster Tools offers linkage information about a site that has been claimed within their systems, it does not offer data about other sites. In other words, without Yahoo Site Explorer, "there is no tool from any major search engine that will show all the links pointing at any site on the web."

However, you can use a similar tool offered by small search engine  Blekko however, does provide these types of tools. And, there are third party free tools such as Majestic Site Explorer,  and SEOmoz Open Site Explorer.

Bye Bye Yahoo Site Explorer!!
