According to Barry at Search Engine Roundtable, loads of Webmasters at WebmasterWorld are reporting that Yahoo Search is currently in the process of updating their index and algorithm. But there is no official statement as such! Here are some of the key points that have emerged out of the thread:

  1. Link counts have seen some amount of drop
  2. Canonical issues are discussed in a major way
  3. One person is reporting “I am seeing two different titles and descriptions for singular vs. plural of my main keyword. It's the same URL, so kind of odd.”

But the issue that now arises is why Yahoo! is not giving any kind of official statement on it? But the Yahoo Search Japan blog has already announced it. Here is the translation

“Yahoo! In search, Yahoo! Inc. UEBUSACHIENJIN has developed the "Yahoo! Search Technology (YST)" has started a full update of the index.

The Index Update?

YST, every day to make a more user-friendly search engine, such as Japan's own and respond to the world stage and improve the work of Akira Osamu develop new features and functions. To reflect the results of this search engine, built-in indexer will update the entire index.

Position changes are expected to be improved with the results of this search. The full completion of the update takes a few days.
