Ink results on Yahoo
as of Feb. 16

Noticed on the Brandy thread that some have started seeing Ink on Yahoo. Me too! But it's not pure Ink. Does anyone want to comment on the differences? What I see is bunch of extra stuff in front of my listings :-(

I'm on the first page for a few things in Ink, but not on the Yahoo version.

How is it that I can be ranked 1 - 3 (depending on which data center - update brandy) on Google but when I use yahoo with the (&tmpl=E088) tag I am not even in the top 25.

Can someone tell me or point me to a source that describes Ink's differences in determining rank. I have been ranked in Google for this keyword in the top 5 for over a year, so itís not just the last 1 - 2 updates.

This is a complex question. One of the big differences between the 2 is that Google SERPs weight off page factors more. Particularly anchor text. First thing I'd suggest is that you look at your on page content, in particularly solid keyword density, for that SERP. While with Google lots of the right anchor text can shoot a site to the top, even if the search term doesn't appear at all on the page, it tends to be hard to do well on Ink without having decent keyword density.

The switch looks pretty stable to me from here in Italy.

Anyone care to hypothesize about the SERPs?

It certainly isn't pure Inktomi, nor AltaVista, nor Alltheweb, nor Google. Some kind of mix?
