Last week Yahoo! announced that they have been making changes on their indexing and ranking algorithms warning everyone to keep a close eye on the effects on their own site’s rankings. It’s been more than a week and I wonder if you have noticed any changes in your site’s ranking in Yahoo. I realised that I haven’t checked with Gary how we’ve been doing.
A reminder to everyone: Though Google is great do not be overly focused on Google and neglect your status in the other major search engines (Yahoo!, Ask, and MSN Search). The traffic from these three are still considerable and traffic is still traffic.
Note too that if you have a client with paid directories or if you submit to paid directories don’t forget on these directories’ status with Google because there have been reports of manual penalisation of paid directories around September last year. I wonder what this year holds in terms of search engines weeding out sites that they deem are not that desirable.
