Did you mean: www.example1.com or www.example.net? We didn't find any Web pages containing www.example.com.
- Check your spelling.
- Try going directly to www.example.com.
- Find web pages that contain "www.example.com".
Also, you can visit the Yahoo! Search Help Center for more suggestions.
The above is examplified of course ;)
I do have to chuckle at the - Try going directly to www.example.com. since that is actually what I did, lol.
I'm keeping it installed - it will be interesting to see how often WebRank gets updated, and if repeated surfing to my own sites will influence the WebRank at all.
Having the same problem here ChrisR. Also curious as I keep seeing so many people post that you need to "sign in" to get access to the buttons. However, I have not "signed in" and it manages to retrieve the buttons every time. It just won't show me any dang webrank.
There is a way to see a sites Google PageRank without having to download the Google Toolbar. If anyone finds a way to show the Yahoo WebRank of a page now that we can't get it could you let us know? Cheers.
Hmm. Need to provide your details to get a Yahoo! account, then 'log in' to submit a site, now a toolbar that tracks where you go....
I don't get it. Why do people want to remain that annonymous? I'm a guy who always leaves his trail behind, infact, I have also put my name into my IE user-agent :) - I'm not joking - even ask Brett.
You are missing the point. I'm far from anonomous.
My point is that Yahoo! REQUIRES that level of personal information from you, before providing you with anything.
Why? Why do they need to know?
They specifically request a range of information, in 3 separate steps - none of which is actually required to
- list a URL to be crawled? They need to know who I am?
- to download a toolbar? They need to know who I am?
Next time you go to put air in the tyres of your car at a petrol station - imagine that they required your name, address, the URLS you work with, your IP address, and the last 50 websites you visited. In a machine readable format - before they'd give you 'free air'.
Thats not Free air.
Thats a plan.

The Web Rank values are calculated using a sophisticated scoring algorithm provides a measure of the popularity of the Web page or Web site that you are visiting.(from the help pages)
Apparently Yahoo's PR department has confirmed that WR is determined algorithmically (according to webpronews).
WR is determined algorithmically
and the algorithm is:
1 times the number of toolbar people who visited the site
ok, i have no idea how it is determined obviously, but just wanted to point out that it COULD be "how many toolbar people visited the site" and STILL be considered to be "determined algorithmically".
