Having trouble with Goodsearch today.
Site loads fine.
The initial search works fine.
If I mouse over a link on the results page, the bottom of my browser shows the correct address....as in www.xyz.xyz
But when I actually click that link, I get something like search.yahoo.com followed by a bunch of code and the link at the end instead of just going directly to the link already shown.
Then it times out trying to connect to search.yahoo.com......

What the?

Seems to be working OK again.
Looks like the link behavior might be normal, but usually happens so fast that I never really paid attention to it.

I suspect the problem was that yahoo had an outage of some kind, so instead of proceeding to the target link, Goodsearch could not get past the search.yahoo bit and stalled at that point.

And now it is broken again.
I do think yahoo is having some issues......

Network Timeout
The operation timed out when attempting to contact us.yhs4.search.yahoo.com.
