Title Tags Look Different In Yahoo And Google
Posted 04 July 2004 - 11:21 AM
My question is how come his title tag on his index page reads different on yahoo/google serps but when you read his source code it reads it how google sees it "Widgets for everything running, eating, dancing and sleeping" What is this guy doing and why is yahoo showing a different title tag then google?

If it's not a matter of the directory description displaying, then maybe the home page's title tag was changed, but Yahoo's spider hasn't picked up on that yet.

Let me know if this could be the cause or if it's something else.

I have been watching this site for 2 years and it has had different titles for yahoo and google. Google showing the title tag he has in his meta, so it really cant be a web site update issue. Also it is Not displaying the description meta.
The wierd thing is, i checked out some other sites that are listed on yahoo under the same keyword and there meta title tags are what is showing in yahoo serps and in google serps, just this guys site has different title listed.
Could he be using cloaking on his web site?

Yahoo was a directory before it was a search engine, and the directory is still there. It's human-edited, and commercial sites have to pay just to be considered for a listing.
Qwerty what do you mean by yahoo “directory description”?
If a site is listed in the directory, the description for its home page, even in Yahoo search results, will be the description that was approved by the directory editor. It will not be the meta description, or a snippet of the text from the home page.

The same goes for the website's title. If the site is listed in Yahoo's Directory, the the title for the home page in the Yahoo Web Pages SERPS will not be what is contained in that's page's title tag, but what is contained in the Yahoo Directory listing title - ie. the company name.
