7 Tips To Improve Site Rankings In Yahoo!

By Edited Mar 7, 2016 0 1

For many years, Yahoo! has been the 2nd most used search engine. Since Google is the most popular and used search engine today, SEO firms offer guaranteed SEO service specifically for the said search engine. For a change, here are some helpful tips to improve your site rankings in Yahoo!:

1. Think carefully of the key terms that your audience will use to search for content like yours. Utilize the terms to direct the construction of your site pages and text.

2. Once the search result of the user matches the title, they are more likely to click that link. Choose terms for your page titles that match the content of your documents.

3. Use the meta tag "description" and insert your description correctly and cautiously. After the title, the description is the most important draw for users. Make sure the document title and description attract the interest of the user as well as matching the content on your site. Use a "keyword" meta tag to list keywords for each page of your website. Specific lists of keywords must be used for each page on the site. Do not use one broad set of keywords for the entire site.

4. Keep relevant text and links in HTML. Changing your text into graphics or image maps can stop search engines from reading the text or links to your website's other pages.

5. To make sure that all your web pages are crawled by search engine bots, you can add an HTML or XML site map with a link coming from your welcome page.

6. Use ALT text with all graphics. Constant using of ALT text will improve the text content of your page especially on search purposes. ALT text also makes your pages more available to text-only browsers and visually impaired visitors.

7. Be in contact with webmasters of related sites and other providers of relevant content in order to increase the number of links to your site. Keep in mind that links coming from related sites pointing to your site and not related sites whose visitors might be engrossed in your site will increase your site's search ranking. Nevertheless, establishing "link farms" in which you create links to unrelated pages in order to increase page link counts will not help your site. The usage of "link farms " fringes the Yahoo! Site Guidelines and will not improve search engine ranking.
