Yahoo! Search Not Providing the Traffic

Jul 22, 2004 - 10:18 am 0 by

Do you find yourself unsatisfied with Yahoo!? Is Yahoo! underperforming for you? While other search partners like Google have put smiles on your face, Yahoo! has been holding back.

Many webmasters are complaining that Yahoo! Search is only bringing in a small fraction of their search traffic. This site on average obtains less then 10% of its organic search traffic from Yahoo!, which is nothing compared to Google which provides over 70%. A thread at WebmasterWorld discusses just that. People are feeling betrayed by the large search engine.

So what can you do to spice up your relationship with Yahoo! Search? Well, maybe you should buy Yahoo! little gifts; bring home roses, maybe take Yahoo! out to dinner, or take a walk on the beach. As one member said "Yahoo does a terrible job crawling. They want you to pay them for inclusion instead."
