Yahoo and Google SEO techniques

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by yulia, Aug 10, 2007.

    Hi,
    SEMrush
    I have a website that gets a decent ranking for some keywords on Google.

    However, when I perform the same search on Yahoo, my website is nowhere to be found.

    My website is listed both on Google (obviously) and Yahoo. However, I have no clue why I don't get a decent ranking on Yahoo.

    Are there different optimization techniques for Google and Yahoo?

    You can ping Yahoo with updates, you can submit a sitemap, and you can submit your site to be crawled. All of these will help. Additionally you can find high-ranked sites on Yahoo and get links from them - i.e. blog comments.

    If you really do rank properly in Google for a specific competitive search term, then you are doing everything alright.
    One of my sites had the same exact problem. However, Yahoo indexes and ranks sites slower than Google. Just submit your site If you haven't already, add your sitemap and give it sometime.

    In my experience Yahoo indexes my site and updates links faster?

    I also wonder. I get steady traffic from Google on most of my sites. None from Yahoo?
