Compete ups stats: Y! up from 13.3% to 19%

Wow! I'm proud to see my finding a regex bug helped Compete correct its stats and set the record right for Yahoo!. As a result Yahoo! Search marketshare is now ~19%, which is up from the wrong percentage of 13.3%. Yahoo! surely needs some positive buzz at this point than any other. That too this one they have the right to.

I'm happy for my alma mater (aka ex-employer). At the same time, I'm mildly disappointed that neither Danny (@SearchEngineLand) nor Jeremy (@Compete) chose to acknowledge me by name or link to my post. Even other commenters have felt so. Glad that Webpronews managed to dig the link out from my comment at Danny's post.

Edit: Compete has linked to my post now. Max from Compete has commented below saying that they meant to give credit to me. Thanks guys.

Cool stuff, Sundar!
Yeah, anything that helps Y! right now is very heart warming. And the stock price going up will hardly hurt the little bit of stock I ended up buying while at Y! either :)
Y'know - you could soon be a celebrity in Y! blog circles....

Sameer, thanks for the alert. The link was there, but buried under the struck-off text. Have added it to the update now.
