Yahoo Changes

mike76 asked 1 year ago
It seems that Yahoo has made quite dramatic changes dropping a big bunch of sites that were listed high ih the gambling/casino related SERP:s

It is supposed that Yahoo now seeks to penalize sites for too much crosslinking. Unfortunatly I have seen a few of my sites drop as well… It’s funny how they concentrate on this linking stuff when all it takes is a bit of Java and hell of a lot spamming to make it to the top of SERP:s – I resently witnessed this in Google as well!!

I guess I will soon stop building sites and just begin spamming like there’s no tomorrow <span title=” title=”” class=”bbcode_smiley” /> lol

Well that’s about it for now… pisses me of to think that now my recently aquired set of themed domains that I was planning to build could be worth nothing… damn these SE:s <span title=” title=”” class=”bbcode_smiley” />

My data shows that Yahoo has actually reverted back to a crawl done in early July around the 12th for my site. Prior to this it was showing the results of a crawl from late July if I am not mistaken.

Well I don’t have or use references from the past, but I just heard that Yahoo has claimed that one should be careful when doing themed sets of sites. And immediatly after hearing this I can see a lot of changes in the results… there has been a total wipeout of a one site network at least.

I think the results are not totally from early July as I can see some changes that I have made just a few days ago.

Yahoo’s gambling results are sometimes good but usually very poor. They have a major problem with sniffing out miniwebs of related sites. They have even resorted to using Google results (which they still have the rights to) for the first twenty or so results for some specific searches.

So, no matter what they have a long way to go. However, I don’t see them particularly going after crosslinked networks this update. Of course both Google and Yahoo have it as a priority to root out these “set of themed domains”, so the days for those are numbered, even if many are still hanging on.
