Another Request To Yahoo! To Add Support For No Directory Tag

I pleaded with Yahoo in the past to Please Enable a No Yahoo! Directory Tag, and I am doing it again. It is especially important now, that Yahoo! adds support for this tag. Webmasters are confused, they think that because Google and MSN ( support a tag to force the engine not to use the ODP directory tag, that Yahoo! would support the same.

A WebmasterWorld thread shows several web site owners complaining that Yahoo! forces the Yahoo! Directory title in the search results.

It really sucks that they do that and the listings are so bland and one simply cannot change anything with them...we have tried to get them to change our listing, but they NEVER answer. That is highly irritating.

It is sad that you pay to get listed in the Yahoo! Directory and it can have a significant difference in your click through rate on your organic results.

More details at Yahoo! Please Enable a No Yahoo! Directory Tag.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld.

Update: Yahoo! has now added support for the NOYDIR tag, more details here.
