Hi all,

Before Yahoo and Bing merged. Keyword position for my client sites were too good.

Keywords will rank on top in Yahoo, even before Google crawl the website.

But lately after Bing take up of Yahoo search, every thing got worse. Even after months of SEO few websites are not at all ranking for most of the keywords. While those keywords rank in first page in Google.

Worried how can I convience the Clients

Any one have a good solution to bring the keywords on top in Yahoo.

Thanks in advance.

Yahoo has been sliding for a while. Personally, I never promise first page for any client, and will NEVER promise first page for all top three search engines. That's business suicide in my opinion. While Yahoo remains relevant it is not lip speak these days, and rarely appears in drive by media reporting. Concentrate on Bing and Google.

Google has changed their game in recent months, moving to brand and paid. Bing (at the moment) still seems to serve "ordinary serps" but don't expect that to last long. We are entering a muddy pasture where the road signs aren't as obvious as previous. And we need to let our clients know this as well.
