I have a site of some 100 pages or so which has just been indexed by Yahoo! and available under the site: command. What is the time for ranking in the Y! index? Does it depend upon updates or are sites moved into the rankings after a certain amount of time?
Thanks for assistance
We have been waiting 4 onths for simple changes to filter through without success, prepare for a wait if a site with such good links can't get noticed.
New site launched start of Oct. Put 1 link on another site i have to let the spiders find it, removed the link after a week. With Y toolbar installed i visited the site a couple of times.
Site spidered in 6 days and index page showing in the serps a couple of days later. After 2 weeks full site showing in serps and top 10 for most of the kw's and phrases I was after and is still there.
As for links to the site it has one inbound that went online this week and has 4 outbound which were on from launch.
Google on the other hand had it showing in the serps after about a week, index page ranking only, then last week it went bye bye and is nowhere to be found.
Im set to launch another on Dec 1st and hoping it goes the same way, only time will tell.
Based on my experience this year, if I was to characterise the vitality of the big three, MSN would come out tops for sheer enthusiasm, and to Slurp I would ask "Hey, if you don't like being a crawler, why not do something else?"
On the other hand I recently launched a small new site - seven pages in all - and within three weeks the traffic from Yahoo is quite respectable.
IMO Yahoo holds the site pages from the index and after certain time period it will reindex the site.
