We're talking to a potential client who has been consistently ranked in the top 10 for months on Google for <competitive term> which has approx 60k searches daily.
They were also appearing in Yahoo.com top 10 for same term. They have a great directory listing in Yahoo.
3 weeks ago they just dropped from Yahoo for no obvious reason. They're still top 10 on Google. When I search for their exact directory title text "Very Competitive Term", they still don't show up. They are still listed though...
Has anyone any experience/knowledge of why a good clean site with 400+ links can just drop from Yahoo.com despite having its Y! directory & Google listings intact?
Thanks in advance
It appears that the results are almost identical to what they were 3 weeks ago except the site in Q is missing.
Of the top 20 sites in Y for this phrase, 19 are dir listings just as they were 3 weeks ago. (#23 on Google SERPs for the same phrase is appearing in 20th spot on Y)
But if you're completly filtered out, you could have been tossed by an editor, but who knows what's going on over at the Yahoo factory...
