Just jumped back, Home page ranks for a lot of phrases, where before interior pages were all over the first pages, 2 at a time.
It's not even the home page that shows up but some deeper page!
A site dead for 2 years gets the 1st position now. I've been updating mine for 3 years now.
Either the people at Y are REALLY incompetent, or they are trying to kill webmasters that use AdSense.
I noticed something though, Yahoo Site Explorer shows only 35 results for my site, which actually has hundreds of original content and thousands of postings. Is Y. having trouble with dynamically generated sites?
That's what happened to my site. One day we had like 80 pages indexed, the next it was more like 500.
The weired thing is that it is quite a competitive niche yielding some 350,000,000 results in Yahoo, and 430,000,000 results in Google for the given keyphrase.
Yahoo seems giving more weight to domain name, title, and onpage factors than ever.
I am aware of it. But the site in question may not be considered "new." The domain name was registered in late Oct last year, and the site is active for almost one year (since early Nov 2005). :)
I registered it and put it online for future use (left to "age," as it were).
