Yahoo! and Meta Tags08.17.16

Mike Grehan interviewed Jon Glick of Yahoo! Search, and he stated that the meta description tag is treated similar to page content. He also stated that the meta keywords tag is used for inclusion into a subset of search results, but has no effect on relevancy. I also covered the issue of meta tags above in the meta tag section earlier in this e-book.

Yahoo! Search Distribution07.27.16

Yahoo! technology now powers around 20% of U.S. search including Yahoo!, AllTheWeb, AltaVista, and many other sites that syndicate or use portions of these search indexes.

Yahoo! places pay-per-click ads at the top and bottom of Yahoo! search results in a blue box and also places ads on the right side of search results. On some of their partner sites, these ads are blended so that they look very similar to regular search results.

Yahoo! also has a paid-inclusion program by the name of Yahoo! Search Submit that allows them to generate revenue from the regular (organic) listings.

Requesting Links07.13.16

Not every link you request requires giving a link back. Sometimes it is cheaper and more efficient to just to go target higher quality links. Sometimes you can just request a link and get it by being personal and empathetic. Other times links may require payment.

Be Personal
The best way to go about acquiring links is to be as personal about it as you can. Look around their web site and try to find personal information. The more you find, the better you are.

When e-mailing them, try to submit it to the person who runs the site, not a general info submission. If you can state where your link should go on their site and how it would improve their user experience, you stand a good chance of getting a link.

Off-topic, somewhat personal statements showing you share similar interests may make you seem more human and more connected with them and will make it easier to get links. For instance, if you found out that I like peanut butter, somehow mentioning that or joking about it in the e-mail will make me far more likely to link to your site.

When Algorithm Changes Occur06.29.16

Your rankings will improve. They will also get worse. Many people rush off to change things right away when the algorithms change. Sometimes the search engines roll in new algorithms aggressively, and then later roll them back. They cannot fight off new forms of spam and determine how aggressive to be with new algorithms unless they sometimes go too far with them.

If you are unsure of what just happened, then you may not want to start changing things until you figure it out. Sometimes when algorithms are rolled back or made less aggressive, many sites still do not rank well because their webmasters changed things that were helping them. Nobody is owed a good rank, and just because a ranking temporarily changes does not mean that a site has been penalized. It is far more likely that the ranking criteria shifted and the site may not match the new ranking criteria as well as it matched the old ranking criteria.
