Changes have been made to the way search queries can be categorised on Yahoo! Answers.
The company has announced that users will now be able to opt to sort through results by newest or oldest article, the most or fewest answers and by relevance.
In changes which are likely to affect companies employing professional SEO services, Yahoo! has also altered the ‘Date Submitted’ dropdown menu to include more options, such as the ability to filter out results not created in the past 24 hours.
The Advanced Search option has also been brought back in, the Yahoo! Answers blog explained.
“Advanced Search allows you to filter your search using specific parameters in order for you to receive results that are more accurate,” it stated.
Earlier this month, Yahoo! announced it is to begin putting Bing-powered search results into its own live rankings, ahead of the latter company powering more of its results later in the year.
