Replying to Yahoo Ranking Algorithm
Posted 20 July 2010 - 07:32 AM
Competition is the only thing which make search engine algorithms better. If there wouldn't be any competition, who would worry about how it works as long as you get income and don't have to worry about others taking your market share.

Will you give up business and money that is on your table ? No. So why shoulld they ? Microsoft is the most famous and used platform and after recession it is going strong again in economy. Adding search engine with quality results can boost their earnings. Only way they can beat google is by offering privacy but both yahoo and bing are ignoring this fact. Google spies on user content and improves the search result which is not the case with bing and yahoo. So instead of focusing their energy on shortcomings of competitor they prefer to reinvent the meta search engine performance which is affecting their growth. Google may be best but many countries and companies don't allow google on their connection this is because of google's spying on user content for ad-monetization. Any search company can outmatch google if they find out how to improve performance of search results without having to spy user content.
i don't understand why yahoo, microsoft (bing) and the others just don't give up and accept the fact that they will never catch up to google.
Not exactly, it's business if they lose your type of people they've nothing to lose. Besides there are more than 10k internet marketer who got their adwords account banned in 2009 so they can't no longer advertise on google. So they're going for bing and yahoo. You know what this means ? It means business. And if this works for those marketers then surely more and more people migrate to another search platform.
as for their i think you are one of the few people who really care about them (no offence).
You're on the line of reasoning that if there is any strong business going on then rest of the competitors should quit. Lol, but your posts gives that perception. Do you think facebook owner quit because of orkut's popularity in india and brazil ? there are more than 1k internet marketers using facebook ads instead of adwords and those ads are converting in lead sales for them. You know what this is ? You think google can beat this ?Important point is facebook managed this without being a good search engine and their search functions are not even close to meta searching.
yahoo still gets thousands and even millions of visitors daily but all them are forced in some way or the other to do so.
Not at all. Yahoo answers is one of the popular place on the internet to get answers. With or without contest people get quality answers. Affiliate marketers can sale there without worrying about moderation etc. They're not at all forced. Google's answer division was shut down and there is no place google can offer that beats answers. In fact if you want to experiment you can open a weird question on Yahoo answers and check in how many minutes it appears on google. It's business, so forget about favoritism.
people know the power of google and even after knowing it if they are going to yahoo then it only means they are attracted by those "contests" or something similar.
Power of google ? what is that ? Yahoo still has many good services and offers alternative to google. What do you think people do when they get banned from adsense ? They go to yahoo or bing search marketing for publishers. What do you think people do when they get banned from google adwords merchant account ? They go to bing search marketing or yahoo search marketing. When people don't want to use analytics of google and other 3rd party then bing and yahoo offers them alternative. Nobody goes to these places just for contests or something. There is something on the internet for everyone. It may be just you who go after those places for contest. Let's not generalize.
You're generalizing again. Many people still use yahoo stores and web hosting. Is there any with google ? Yahoo groups are still worth a lot in terms of people and SEO. so there we go...
without their own benefit i think there are very few people using yahoo when compared to google.

1. If every webmaster got knowledge of the algorithm, the lives of Black-Hat Search Engine Optimization specialists would become infinitely easier - which would invalidate the whole point of Search Engines to boot.
2. Good ranking algorithms are the quintessential capital of any Search Engine. And so it's only natural that each SE will try to protect its algorithms from its competitors.
The closest you'll probably ever get to finding the actual algorithm of a Search Engine will be a "guess," at best. Moreover, SEs tend to change and modify their algorithms frequently to keep up both with the technology and with the strategies of black-hat optimizers.
