Ahhh, the war has just begun ;)

I said in another thread that webmasters may now become split and be forced to choose between whether to optimize specifically for Google or Yahoo...

Have you found it possible to adequately optimize for both, rather than compromising on one in favour of the other?

Actually, yes - it's more a case of the cake being shared - I am doing great on Google, Yahoo - and MSN - for my big keywords.

Not so much having to choose, as much as not being complacent with just the one. :)

anyway, bye. :)

One thing I just noticed btw... If I search for...

link:http://www.mydomain.com

As per your info sheet, it also comes back with internal site links.

So, it might be a good idea to do...

link:http://www.yourdomain.com -site:www.yourdomain.com

To make sure you only see links from other people to you, and you're not going through 10,000 internal links to see who else is linking to you :)

That's a good tip, thanks! I didn't realize you could 'subtract' entries from google's searches.

Neither did I, but I figured it was worth a try, lol. So, feel free to edit your info sheet to add that one, lol.

oh, btw, that search was on Yahoo not on Google. If you can do it on Google, I've not figured out how yet, heh.

It wouldn't accept -site: or -allinurl: to exclude a particular domain from the link: bit. Even though I know there are other sites linking to my page, it came up with zero results with both of the subtract methods I mentioned above.

Great article. I especially agree with you on the description tag. I never usually optimized this tag because Google never really gave it importance, but I recently noticed Inktomi, and now Yahoo give some great value to it.

You have a nice article.. At least more basic learning, you gave us a clue on the search and optimization process.

How about in google; you have any plan?

Thanks.

Humm..... I had a small guide written by an old internet user. The title was yahoo in my pocket. He gave it away to me for free and in past 2 years whenever I have used it's mentioned things I have always been on the top positions in the yahoo search engine.

I seem to do better in Google and MSN and Yahoo is nearly non existant. I think it just means that I need more links pointing to my site though as I have not done much advertising in the last year due to other stuff that I had to do.

I do believe that you can optimize for all 3 though.

This is a very relevant, juicy and good information but on the other hand, i would still prefer to optimize for Google because they were easier to get along with respect to (SEO) optimization of pages.

Is this article still valid? I mean it was written in 2004 and Yahoo must have changed its indexing criteria.
