Yahoo Search And Your Site
Originally Published: February 24, 2004
The Yahoo search engine uses META keyword tags, if you have neglected these tags you can easily created them for your existing pages using our
META keyword tag generator.
Since last week,
Yahoo doesn't display Google results anymore. Yahoo has started to use its own new search engine software.
Although almost all experts expected it, Yahoo isn't replacing Google with its own Inktomi technology. Yahoo has developed a brand new search engine, based on Inktomi, AltaVista and AllTheWeb technology.
Yahoo's search engine spider is capturing the full text of web pages, up to a 500,000 characters limit. The new Yahoo search also supports many file types, including HTML, PDF, and Microsoft Office documents.
What does this mean to you and your web site?
Yahoo is a very big player in the search engine market. Its new search technology will power
nearly half of all searches
conducted within the United States.
That means that your web site should have good rankings in Yahoo if you don't want to lose customers.
How does Yahoo's new search engine spider work?
Yahoo's new search engine spider will follow every HREF link on a website. It seems that it doesn't follow SRC links such as images or
Yahoo's spider can follow dynamic links but Yahoo is advising webmasters to post static pages with text links directed to specific sections featuring dynamic content. Another good reason to use a
on your web site.
Don't use shady search engine optimization techniques!
Yahoo has combined its own proprietary anti-spam technology with Yahoo Mail's SpamGuard technology to help filter out irrelevant, redundant or low-quality URLs and links. Taking advantage of the synergies between Yahoo Search and Yahoo Mail, these two services will share data to reduce spam and further improve the user experience across Yahoo.
Web sites that try to cheat Yahoo with unethical search engine optimization methods such as cloaking will have a hard time with Yahoo.
That means that it's more important than ever before to use
ethical search engine optimization methods
if you want to get good results on Yahoo.
