Hi,

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?

I would say Google focuses more on off-page optimization such as backlinks whereas Yahoo is more focused on on-page optimization such as keyword density, H1 tages etc...

Google
Google is a search engine that makes heavy use of link popularity as a primary way to rank web sites.
This can be especially helpful in finding good sites in response to general searches such as "cars" and "travel," because users across the web have in essence voted for good sites by linking to them. The system works so well that Google has gained wide-spread praise for its high relevancy. Google also has a huge index of the web and provides some results to Yahoo and Netscape Search.

Yahoo

Yahoo is the web's most popular search service and has a well-deserved reputation for helping people find information easily. The secret to Yahoo's success is human beings.
It is the largest human-compiled guide to the web, employing about 150 editors in an effort to categorize the web. Yahoo has over 1 million sites listed. Yahoo also supplements its results with those from Google (Google took over from Inktomi in July 2000). If a search fails to find a match within Yahoo's own listings, then matches from Google are displayed. Google matches also appear after all Yahoo matches have first been shown. Yahoo is the oldest major web site directory, having launched in late 1994.

I too have the same problem but its the reverse type with my website http://www.katikatiafrica.com/

when i check the ranking of the keywords conference Uganda which i have been targeting ranks on the top in Yahoo but too far in google.

why so ? is google having some problem with my site ?

There is one more problem of displaying BACKLINKS of my website http://www.millsonsleather.com On checking backlinks to that site in Yahoo it shows more than 200 backlinks whereas in Google it shows "ZERO".

why so ?

i have done directory and se submission and sitemaps and much more.

Yahoo is cool with me but GOOGLE "not".

I have more experience with google and my friends too and if you stick to the rules google will tolerate you but only little mistake and ban, I heard that with Yahoo is different story they are very tolerate and very often over the rules and that is good, but everything have their advances and missadvances.

Checking backlink with link: queries in google won't really show the correct amount of backlinks you have. I get the feeling that google only lists links above a certain PR where as msn seems to show almost all on the same query.

I'm not saying that google don't take all links into calculations but maybe they don't store all backlinks in the index.

Yahoo highly depends on the site itself.
The content in it. And the structure of the site.

Google on the other hand puts weight on the backlinks along with the above mentioned yahoo points.

Google like to keep their backlinks a secret now. If you do my website http://www.lakeland-printing.com you will see that I have "zero". But if I log onto Google Webmaster Tools they tell me (in secret) that I have 35. I highly recommend the Google Tools.

These is beacuse of the way, the crawlers indexes the pages.The working principle is almost same in these two major (Google and Yahoo) search engines.

But the algrothims are programmed differently in these two Engines .So each of these search engines are have their diff way of look for indexing.


But Keyword denisity and backlinks are the most important and common factors.


Choosing the relevant keywords and getting more back links will give you the expected results.overture is the best tool for choosing rich keyword.



Sometimes there will be the possiblity that the no of backlinks got by particular site can be diff viewed in these two search engines.


For E.g


Some one got 100 backlinks in google

But in the case of yahoo they got only 60


this is beacuse of, the sites from u have got the backlinks have diff indexed by these two search engines.Some backlink providers have frequently indexed in google but not in the case of yahoo.

Hi, I have the same problem on http://www.partynight.it .

After 2 years of promotion (i'm sure i have now thousands of backlinks :) ), about 100.000 pages on index, thousand of people linking back, google still show zero backlinks and a PR 3.. :cry:

Different situation about backlinks on http://www.treenet.it , which is currently PR5 :D, but sometimes counts about 4000 links and sometimes zero backlink :shock:

Maybe sites with PR less than 3 are not relevant for backlinks also for google.

- Good anchor text.
- One-way links.

- Update your site.

Yahoo:
-Meta tags match contest.
- Work on keywords
- Backlinks from homepage better.
- Good anchor text.

Only quality back links will help you to rank in all search engines.
You may submite your site in yahoo directories for better SERPs at yahoo.

Ya really, both like incoming links but google is so strict in terms of relevancy and quality of incoming links and shows only most relevant links as backlinks of a site unlike yahoo that shows most of all links available for a site on the web.

and also anchor text of a incoming links is also important factor for ranking in google.

The exact algorithm is on the use of keywords and page content.

Google appears to favor off-page factors while Yahoo is more on the on-page.. however, quality content, ideal and related anchor texts and relevancy of the links are the factors that appeals to them the most

I have always had quick results with Yahoo but with Google it has taken way more time. It also seems harder on new sites with Google compared to Yahoo.

This because they are using different algorithm. Google is more on backlinks while yahoo is more on content.
