Changes In Yahoo! Ranking!
“Yahoo search normally moves rather slowly with small changes, but I just saw some pretty big shifts in Yahoo rankings, including:-
- botching part of a sitewide 301 redirect that they had followed for months – now both sites rank, but each ranks well for some portion of the queries
- a bit more weight on domain names”
Loren Baker says that the pages below ‘rank higher in Yahoo again, so authority seems to be more important than keywords in the URL.
- Yahoo Directory
- Yahoo 360
- Google Groups
- Google Translate
Has anyone else noticed these changes?
