Yahoo Search Hour Outage; Bing also Went Down
Yahoo’s dedicated search site at search.yahoo.com remains offline at the moment, a couple hours after Bing suffered and recovered from a similar outage.
As I type this, Yahoo’s search service is loading intermittently — but even if the service does load, it can’t execute a search request. In other cases, visitors are getting the “Yahoo will be right back…” message seen above.
Yahoo gets its search results from Bing, which was also down at the same time earlier today, but has since come back online. According to some of the tweets from those who noticed, both Bing and Yahoo were down simultaneously starting around 2:30 pm ET.
