weird: there are lot of ppl coming to my site from Yahoo search, entering different keywords and phrases (that I DO target for, btw). My stats program shows which page of results they are coming from, it is always 1-2 page (well, based on the amount of visitors it gotta be smth close to the beginning LOL).
But whenever I go to yahoo myself to check the same phrases, or click on that same page of results they are coming from, I never can see myself... even among the first 500 results! I mean NEVER! It looks like I don't exist in yahoo. Whole world sees my site in the results, except me! People are coming to my site from yahoo all over the world, and looks like I am the only one who cannot see my own site in the results! What am I missing here?
I thought it could be different datacenters or old out-of-date results that I am seeing, or that they are seeing... But no, this is going on over TWO MONTHS already!
For the last 4-5 weeks (recent yahoo update) our site shows top five results on most of the keeywords in most of country based results like india, australia, uk com; altavista; overture and cnn but on US yahoo.com results comes up on page 3 to 5. www.site.com on US yahoo shows 1350 results with a yahoo search directory listing also. on few keywords it still comes up on page 1 on US yahoo. On US yahoo.com it shows same results as contry based yahoo results 4-5 a days for few seconds or minutes or until I clean cache and temp files. Does this mean that the site is penalized.
I have cleaned all explorer files like cache and tmp but still yahoo.com doesnot show what contry based and other yahoo affiliates show.
