Yahoo Directory Listing Puzzling
Posted 03 October 2003 - 12:58 AM
Somehow the site still got listed in Yahoo? Anyway my biggest problem is that the listing is not fully optimized for the keywords. I think something weird is going on. If you search on AOL or Google my client is #1 for his most targeted key phrase.
If you search on Yahoo he frequently does not show up... unless you search further than the first page and then go back to the first page of results, where he usually magically appears at #1 again.
Do you think this is because how yahoo is trying to integrate Inktomi (maybe they are running a test)
Has anyone else seen anything like this? and the $1,000,000 question is how do you fix it

Why it disappears? Maybe Google's different databases?

I don't remember being charged for the listing and I know I decided not to fully go through the process. Could an editor just add a site they liked?
As far as the database goes...they might be different (Google is always changing and is thus constantly newer) but this problem has occured for a while... I am puzzled
I am actually seeing his site in the Yahoo Directory.... I saw it when it was in the new submissions to this catagory... and now it has been there long enough to be mixed in with the regular listings.
beneath his regular search listing he has the red arrow - and its page title matches what is in the Yahoo directory (different from what is in google)
