Searching for directory sites: Google falls for Yahoo!

i’m just going to pretend for now that this is all just some sort of mathematical fluke:

“Last November, as reported in Google likes directory sites, I discovered that Google had the uncanny ability to sniff out high-quality, but little-known directory sites. As I discussed in that article, Google was able to do this because it ranks sites according to how many people make links to them, and smart people everywhere learn that directories are important, so they make many links to them. Now, however, I’ve found solid evidence that Google’s new alliances, especially the pact with Yahoo! that was announced in June, seem to have compromised its ability to find directories.”
