Yahoo cache corrupted
Yahoo cache is displayed incorrectly

 6:42 pm on Oct 21, 2004 (gmt 0)

All my pages have valid html (validated by w3.org) yet the yahoo cache is having real problems with it. Whether it's the spider or something else I don't know. But the cache is corrupting the html because somewhere "<" has not been interprated correctly.

Pages are slowly disappearing and I believe this is causing it as it appears I have ridiculous anchor text.

Anyone else had any problems with this?

(All other search engines have no problem with it).

The site has now disappeared using site:www.mysite.co.uk.

However, I can still see the cache, so if anyone is interested then please sticky me for url.

On the face of it, it is the corrupted anchor text that has caused the penalty.

My sites disappeared, too. Check Inktomi pure search -- you are may out of from there. It's early to ring any bell, perhaps everything will be back normal until tomorrow.

It's not so much the sites disappearing that bothers me, it is the state of the cache.

Perfectly valid html has been misread by either Slurp or the cache.
