No Guardian or Telegraph on Yahoo homepage!?

Here below is the question and a selection of comments (but no answers) from disgruntled Yahoo viewers who can no longer see headlines from the Guardian, Telegraph, and Daily Mail newspapers on the Yahoo homepage.
I am one of the disgruntled users who likes/liked the layout of news headlines on Yahoo.
I like to scan news from around the world and I get the Guardian, the Telegraph, and other newspaper headlines from around the world, on iGoogle.
I preferred the format on Yahoo, which if I recall it correctly (amazing how quickly the details of the format has faded from my memory) was all in one central box with tabs for the newspapers and connected links to related images above the tabs.
What's happened to Daily Mail, Guardian and Daily Telegraph tabs on Yahoo UK home page?

Up to yesterday, I could click directly into these newspaper sites. They were the best reason for having yahoo as my home page. Now it's just 'news', 'sport', 'entertainment' and' finance'. Why?
The same has happened to me too and I agree with you.
They feel that they need to keep changing things, for some reason; this is not always appreciated by the users.
Newspapers are losing money are limiting their sites so people buy more papers..
It can't be because of subscription issue. you can still google these papers and read them. Yahoo should stop changing user areas without asking the users. It give you lots of way to "tailor" your yahoo and then just ignores all this "choice" by changing anything it feels like. So so irritating.
I am another user not happy that these tabs have been removed overnight without any warning or explanation!
Tried fiddling around, can't get them back either. Really annoyed by this.
has anyone heard any more about this? I liked the different papers view they just went without any notice/comment or any apparent opportunity to give any feed back
agree with all above - can't even find where to formally query this. Going to wait a couple of days to see if it a glitch then will have to find new homepage. This is rubbish. Does anyone know of a similar news comparison site?Read more at www.searchwords.org

My Blog Is Carbon Neutral

I am pleased to be able to make the statement in the title to this article and I want to explain how I have done it and how I came to hear about the scheme that enables it.

The first step along the path that brought me to this happy state is that I have joined Seeded Buzz.

The idea behind Seeded Buzz is for the members to plant seeds - which means telling other bloggers about their blog posts and inviting them to continue the conversation on their blogs with a link back to the original post on their blog.

Well I have found a blog post from one of the members that covers a subject that interests me.


Seeded Buzz points out that better the Seed conversation and the more extendable / debatable it is, the more other bloggers will Buzz about it on their blogs and link to the original post.

And as we all know, links are the engine that pumps searches - and these are the lifeblood of the internet.

The seeder profile I found was from Thomas Chasm who blogs about a lot of different categories …

Giveaway Tools

After looking at an article on InsightScope about contest giveaways, I just read the FAQs for one of the tools, which is KingSumo Giveaway and I see that as at the time the FAQs were prepared, the tool doesn't integrate with Mailchimp. Instead you have to download a CSV and upload.Also, there is a warning that the tool may not be compatible with Facebook's terms in the future.Finally, there is a long, convoluted way you have to deal with duplicate content, which is described in the FAQs as follows: I’m concerned about duplicate pages for SEO We don’t create new pages, just add a parameter to your URLS. Google just sees the original page and URL structure. What we recommend if Google results are important is to run the tool, then once it looks like a winner I’d change the Title to the winner and the original URL. Remove the other titles. We are working on a fix to make this easier.Advanced users:Utilize the parameter tools in Google’s Webmaster Tools and set the Headline plugi…
