Dissappeared From Yahoo
Posted 13 April 2004 - 08:00 PM
I've re-optimized her site, re-did links to utilize apache mod rewrite for the dynamic urls, added a sitemap page, and I still can't get her site to come up in yahoo on the web site search page. She is doing fine in Google and MSN, but it seems most of her business came from yahoo, and now it's gone. Of course, she's looking to me to make it all better, and I'm all out of ideas.

Last 3 years Yahoo's results were powered by Google and now it is changed. There are certain things which wont work for Yahoo but for Google. Most of the the methods you have mentioned may work for Google. Unless you provide the website url it is difficult to give any solution.

When did this disappearance happen? as Ajesh mentioned Yahoo is no longer using Google to deliver it's results, it is now using its own branded Yahoo! search.
Yahoo slurp (their spider) is a totally different animal to googlebot which will run around spidering most stuff. Slurp needs to be have a damn good reason to spider your site, (very much more with dynamic sites) unlike Googlebot who considers that simply being there is reason enough
Dumb question I know, but have you checked how many of the sites pages are actually in the Yahoo! search index? I personally would start there, I would also find out what links Yahoo know exist to your site, as this is a major way to get slurp slurping. I would check to make sure that backlinks are not going to the wrong place www.site, http//:site, multiple domain names etc, make sure the technical bit is right, as in my experience this is normally where a lot of problems stem, split backlinks.
Y! is spidering their own directory now, but it may still take a while for your site to be picked up, and then only the submitted page will get spidered first round.

I'm only up to around 6 posts, so it will be awhile before I can ask for a site review officially thru the board.
I'm not sure I can afford to hire a SEO company. I have no idea what they charge, and I can't charge my client for it, so I'd really appreciate some free advice first.
Don't want to get kicked off this wonderful board, but would anyone be willing to take a quick look at this site for me and see if there is anything glaringly un-yahoo friendly?
Please let me know if it would be ok to type in the domain name but not as an active link?

Just kidding....changing servers....waiting...waiting...waiting...
Damn DNS so slow. If it doesn't hurry up I will be disappearing from Yahoo and many others.

Mind you, if they've advertised on Overture in the past, there's always the "OV penalty" theory to fall back on ;-)
