Yahoo Sandbox Escape
Many people claim that there is no such a thing as Sandbox in Google and Yahoo. Google’s representative even came out and denied the ‘Sandbox’ concept. Sandbox effect is just too obvious to deny. They are just playing the words. Yes you can say that there is no such thing as a ‘Sandbox’, but there is a fact that new websites don’t rank well in competitive keywords. So, the ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ answer is really depends on the definition of what a ‘Sandbox’ is.
In the SEO industry, almost everyone knows a newly registered domain doesn’t rank well in competitive keywords. These new baby websites can still rank well or even become number one search result in some niche keyword phrases. A little earlier I talked about how to have a Google Sandbox escape in the other article, now I would like to talk about Yahoo Sandbox escape to help new websites to rank well in competitive terms. Google is more machine based, so what you need is to play with their algorithm. Yahoo is a relatively more commercial search engine.
As you can notice their search result has more commercial sites on the top 10 results while Google has more non-commercial sites. Although Yahoo heavily relies on the machine to get the search result, it still manually changes the results to reach Yahoo’s best interested. In the contrast, Google almost totally reply on its calculations and data without manual input on getting the search results. So when you search for ‘search engine’, Google does not appear as the number one in their own result! For a Yahoo Sandbox escape, you might need to spend some money on there directories. Although Yahoo directories are not appearing in the Yahoo front page anymore, people still use it for search. And the greatest thing about directory listing is that you can almost immediately (a few days) jump from number 260 to top 20 for a competitive keyword after your site is included in their directories. And you actually get real traffic from these listings. The directory would give you not only one link but at least 8 links. For example, you are listed in ‘oil painting’ category. You would be listed in oil painting category of Yahoo US, Australia, Canada, India, Philippine… For Yahoo, you know you are a VIP because you will rank exceptionally well compare to your competitors with the same amount of back links.
What frustrates me is your title and description in Yahoo search will be changed. Yahoo stuff would manually make a title and description for your page. And your title would often appear to be your domain name. If your domain name doesn’t have anything to do with your content topic, the searcher might not click into your site even though you are the top search result. What can you do? After you have build a lot of quality back links and your site has grown old, you cancel the listing.
