Yahoo have problems with a 301?

 10:14 pm on Feb 7, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have had 301 redirects on numerous pages within my site for 4 to 5 months.

Google seems to have picked up on this, but Yahoo continues to try and index the pages.

Does anyone know if Yahoo has trouble with 301 redirects?

See this from Yahoo: www.ysearchblog.com/files/wmw2004/search-engines-and-webmasters.ppt

This is a powerpoint presentation format file.

I have had 301's for just shy of a year and yahoo still (daily) requests a good assortment of the old page names.

For the longest time, starting a few weeks after the switch we were not to be found on yahoo (and msn), and then about 9 months into it they did an update and we were everywhere. Quite frankly had I known the amount of lag built in there from the getgo I would have been more inclined to take sitematch seriously

Hi Nalin, Haven't heard of sitematch, how do I find out about it please?
