Through December of 2008, I recommended local.yahoo.com to my clients and potential clients that were outside of my commuting range.     I was proud of my businesses placement in the local.yahoo listings.  I had several positive reviews.  When searching for a Computer Consultant,  Network Security, Wireless, and several other key categories that are relevant to my business, my site, Evans Computers was doing quite well.    Now, if you search for any of those services at local.yahoo.com, in my zip code, Evans Computers will no longer be a result.   Now you will get results that are obtuse. Examples:  Gray Bar Electrical, when you search for wireless security,  Wells Fargo bank when you search for wireless Internet.   I think local.yahoo.com still performs well for finding a local steak house.   Maybe not.
