The problem is simply that they do not index me by my actual meta tags, but by their own title & description, this results in bad placement and the inability to do anything about it.
Is this to be considered a penalty?
Google still ranks me high across nearly 7000 phrases.
I've pleaded my case with Yahoo, but they never reply.
Any ideas on how to proceed? Is it even worth it?
I will try this:
<meta name="robots" content="noodp,noydir" />
and see what shakes out.
Doing a site:mydomain still produces the home page at #1, but everything thereafter is inlinks. Still trying to determine what kind of penalty I am stuck with.
I actually had someone from Yahoo Search Marketing call me within 24 hours of shutting down my PPC ads wondering why?(since I'm so frustrated with Yahoo!, why keep patronizing them?) I know this sounds like cutting off my nose to spite my face, but I was getting very little useful traffic from them.
