Need A Little Guidance On Two Things
Posted 22 January 2007 - 11:44 AM
The other issue I stumbled upon today with it is that if I do linkdomain: on Yahoo, it shows only one link to a category landing page. This makes me think that there is some duplicate content problems, as that page isn't linked to at all and it's one of about 20 category landing pages. I guess this could be possible, as my header/footer and left columns are all the same on my index/category pages, but each category page and the index page is very different on the main part (although not a ton of content). If duplicate content is the problem, I'm really screwed, because it's done so well as it is now.
So, are these two separate issues going on, or is it all related to the aging problem (although I didn't think Yahoo was so bad about it)? I always figured that a few quality links + good optimizing would get a site going in under 3 months, but I guess I'm living and learning (and dreaming, haha).
Thanks again, all.

So at four months, you've likely still got a ways to go with Google.
As to the Yahoo issue, forgive me if these are really obvious questions, but I have to ask:
Did you make sure you'd selected "show inlinks not from this domain" in the Yahoo Site Explorer? (Internal links to the page from elsewhere on your site may count as links otherwise.)
Did you visit the page that was reported as a link to see if it does, in fact, have a link to that category page on it?
You might find some useful information in this article from SEOmoz: Expectations and best practices for moving to or launching a new domain.

Duplication issues within your site can stop the spiders from crawling further- but they don't penalize you for it. Having the same main site template shouldn't flag pages as duplicates, but having the same title-description on all of them can.

About Yahoo; I was using the regular search, not site explorer, and typing in the brand company name in quotes, which only brought up one of the deep links, but not the home. I think that it's a mix of the same descriptions + 85% of each page is the same causing this... I'll make some meta description/category description changes today and hopefully that does the trick.
Also, every landing page is connected to every other. This isn't bad, is it?
I have multiple PR6/PR7 links (yea, yea, PR is irrelevant) and two related Wikipedia links... I'd think this would do something rather fast. The site is being visited by Google very often, but it's not going anywhere, still. But, I will eventually accept the waiting period and shut up about it!
