R.I.P. Yahoo Site ExplorerYahoo Shutdown the Site Explorer

The shutdown of the Yahoo Site Explorer was announced a while ago and now the time has come. On Friday 18.11. Yahoo officially put a date on it.

Webmasters should now be using the Bing Webmaster Tools to ensure that their websites continue to get high quality organic search traffic from Bing and Yahoo!. Site Explorer services will not be available from November 21, 2011.
For backlink data here in I have decided to use Blekko for the time being, because they offer a simple, easy to use API and the contact was very friendly and helpful. I hope the complete integration will be done this week. Old Domains will still show the Site Explorer data, but this will fade out over time.
