Yahoo Site Explorer Is Shutting Down

July 12  |  Link Building Tools  |   Ryan Clark

Well the sad news of the day is that the beloved Yahoo Site Explorer will be closed to and users will be shoved on over to Bing Webmater Tools. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with their backlink reporting, and I can say truly that it will be missed! I imagine tools like Link Diagnosis, SEO Quake and others will have to start learning the Bing API and see if some magic can happen. Link analysis has evolved a lot in the past couple of years, and we’ll still have Majestic SEO data, Open Site Explorer to power other tools for our needs.

The other features of site exploer will remain for a while longer as well including sitemap submissions and other features for people outside of the US. Eventually Yahoo’s search results will be fully powered by Bing anyway, so I’d get familiar with their webmaster tools sooner than later! I’d love to hear from other link builders out there if they’re still using the link reporting here a lot, or have you all moved onto strictly using the big boy tools?
