How Do Yahoo And Other Rank Back Links?
Posted 07 November 2005 - 01:20 PM
My question is, do Yahoo and other sites increase the weight of a back link by the position the site appears in the SO, or if they do it another way, can this be analyzed, like PR is on Google.
I am creating some online ads, placing some articles, and creating some blog sites. My intent is to find the sites that can give me the most back link bang for my buck.

That's not entirely accurate. The PR of the page linking to you is one of the factors taken into account, along with the number of links on that page. There are probably other factors as well.
And I don't know what factors are used by Yahoo and MSN. They both report significantly more backlinks than Google, but that doesn't really mean anything. I doubt very much that either Y or M give a page a ranking boost based strictly on the number of backlinks they're aware of. I'm sure they must take some other factors into account, such as where the links are coming from.

(They don't simply use PR.)

Hey Jill, by 'anchor text' I take it you mean making the link appear on the page as a keyword or key phrase, is that correct?
Doing well on Yahoo, even crawling up on Google. MSN not on the radar yet.

Well, currently MSN doesn't care if you have links or not. Yahoo likes links, but puts a lot of emphasis on what's on the page as well.
