Of the <50 results, 26 are coming up with a description and url result that is similar to:
The link goes to my index page. What are these?
For those who don't know what I am talking about, Yahoo has a search box you can place on your site. Visitors can search for content on your site or the web (by selecting the appropriate radio button). Even if the search is limited to "within this site", the data are still pulled from the Yahoo index. Bad data=bad search results.
I have since removed the Yahoo search box from my sites, and replaced it with Google's.
Way to go Yahoo. Keep up the good work. LOL
Of the big three, Yahoo has the most indexing issues, but hopefully with the newish Slurp we'll see some incremental improvements.
I found a Yahoo SERP with the URL from an AdWords Ad - Source Code and all. Cant figure out how it happened and now must do some fancy robots.txt and such to keep dup. content issues away (i think - heck if I know what happened)
Most of the time when we find things like this - we just "shrug" and say, "It's Yahoo!"
