One of my sites turns up in Yahoo's Most Popular section. At the top of the list even. But I have no idea what measurement they used to determine that that.
Does anyone know if it is based on click-thru's or is link popularity also a factor? I see from previous threads that folks have documented that Yahoo is measuring Click Thru's, but I am wondering if this is the only criteria they use to establish "Most Popular"
Also, if they are measuring click thrus - do you know if they are also taking a measurement for how long someone stays on a site before they return to the index?
Thanks. And keep rockin! :)
However, they have recently change that. Now, even if you drill down into a category all links contain the code. It is actually a pretty cool system because they now have better control over which category matches are displayed at the top. Tracking the keyword from the search lets them determine which categories best relate to common search terms. Once you are in the category, they track which listings gets clicked on the most, and those listings eventually get promoted to the most popular status.
