I beginning to think at least half of yahoo's own paid directory is full of banned sites in their search engine. If they went through and unbanned all of their paid listings/human reviewed directory websites it would be halfway decent.
One thing you notice if you search the directory (which nobody really uses), those results are fairly relevant and clean.. but their search results in my opinion are really garbage.
we are exactly in the same situation. Almost the same numbers.
The same story. I think something may be going on.
Hope that Yahoo will take note of few things.
They are showing lots of bad results
They have too many ads around their search results
They are very poor in terms of showing diverse news results from their Yahoo Search News.
1. Keywords in Meta Title
2. Keyworks in Meta Description
3. Keywords in Meta Keywords... however it is working for three out of four keywords
4. Keywords in outbound links to other sites.
5. Keywords in the URL
I personally feel from an SEO point of view this page is inadequate as it does not feature the necessary keywords anywhere other than the Headline (H1).
I have also been searching the library for Yahoo specific tweaking but haven't found anything. Can members please share their insights
Im from Holland and everybody in this country is using Google. I have a few domains with sites and all my traffic is actually from google.. yahoo can i count on 1 hand.
The tips from Namaste are perfect.. but every self respectig SEO is using this already, it working for me and other for Google but other se's are :(
I was just laughing on my toilet when i saw that yahoo likes my images a lot... just a stupid php script who poops a image.... no content at all!
The fact that my site isn't thrown in with that garbage is a compliment right now. They'll get around to cleaning them up eventually so if u try to rank in that slop you'll get tossed the same way the others will.
