  • Strange Yahoo! SERPs Results

    When searching to see which sites were listed for a Yahoo! search on SEOptimise I found that none of the results were relevant and they all had something to do with soroptimist instead!

    Here’s a screenshot of the Yahoo! SERPs (click image for full size):

    The uk.yahoo.com results list the sites I would have expected to see with a suggestion of “Did you mean: soroptimist”. This makes far more sense to show the correct results alongside the suggestion rather than just forwarding to what they thought I meant.

    I’ve submitted for a Yahoo! directory listing this week so hopefully this will help to return results related to SEOptimise when searching on Yahoo.com.

    I also found another surprising result listed for the same search and an “SEOptimise blog” query on Yahoo! UK. Instead of listing the correct page title it displayed the blog owner/poster name instead, the correct title is listed however for the label page in 2nd place:

      Yep, and I didn’t mean deoptimise! :D

      It’s a bit annoying as a search for seoptimise on Google brings up 17,900 results while a search for deoptimise only has 812, so I’m not sure if the suggestion is really needed as it seems quite obvious it’s not a typo.
