have you submitted? i didn't know about this until the other day.

Yes, I have used the Submit Your Site for Free.
And I am assuming that I am included, since my web site show's up for a longer version of my target querie.
06-03-2004, 05:16 PM
I rank # 1 for the querie: magicien humoriste (translate to comedy magician)
But I don't even show up in the first 20 pages... for the word: magicien (translate to magician)

it's probably just that your site has not been around very long. it was just registered this year right?

I just have to ask this question. Please... oh please... tell me you didn't:
Did you focus on Yahoo optimization and NOT Google optimization when you developed your site?

I rank #2 in Google for "magicien" the word I am targetting, & #1 for "magicien humoriste".
My main concern is Google, but I want to have the largest visibility.

sometimes it's just matter of time
I've noticed yahoo lags behind a lot more than google

i would agree with that. just continue working on google and yahoo will come.

Yahoo is a little weird to me. I have about 480 pages cashed with Yahoo! and the weird part it they keep changing my main page back to an old cashed version. Then after a few days it comes back up.
Does anyone have any links to where we can figure out how they work and what the deal with that is?
06-06-2004, 04:12 PM
it's probably something similar to google's datacenters
if you want to remain consistant, go to the site based on ip, not the domain

Ladies and gentlemen (and, as Groucho Marx remarked in Horse Feathers after saying that, "There, that oughta hold most of 'em"), at this time Yahoo is simply not anything that any webmaster ought to give a flying duck about.
Not only are they an inconsequential contributor to leads, they are highly likely to remain that way for so long as they are managed by auto-proctologists. Their recent revelation that they disdain 301 Redirects would, all by itself, be enough to shred the credibility of a bigger and better outfit.
It is a crying shame that in a world dominated by an enterprise in serious need of catching up with reality, one of the two chief potential competitors remains unable to figure out what shoelaces are, much less how to tie them. It is scary to think that only "very small and limp" remains the chief market correction for The Big G.

From my part, I couldn't care less for Yahoo, but after reading an article http://searchenginewatch.com/reports/article.php/2156431
It looks like Yahoo have a good part of pie, concerning search engines.

In the other hand, a research conducted by Enquiro about Search Engine Usage In North America http://www.enquiro.com/research.asp
Shows that Google was the clear winner when participants were asked to indicate their favorite engine 71.68%.

yeah, but are they sampling the same sites as a comparison? i think the best way is to take a random sample of 100 sites and track them in the SERPs for a month to draw a conclusion as to what gets searched the most.

Yahoo is nothing to sneeze at.
I always optimize with Google forefront in my mind, but I often find that my client's see Yahoo rankings much quicker.
I have one client with ten top three positions for related keywords on Yahoo. All of these link to a secondary page on her site. This has tripled her incoming web traffic.
She is quite happy with that. 8-|
