Yahoo likes RSS feeds

Category: Professional

A Syndicated blog gets indexed faster on Yahoo.

Most of the visits to my blog have been through Yahoo in the last couple of days, and that's because Yahoo indexed the Tsunami disaster related posts that I'd written on my blog on 27th Dec., Monday.

This blog doesn't show up on Google search results for posts written in the recent past, while Yahoo indexes the latest posts, as I've syndicated my blog, and it has a RSS feed, which helps in faster indexing of the latest posts.

Technorati, the blog search engine, indexes the posts almost instantly, within 20 minutes. However, it is a special search engine, a blog search engine, and only those who are aware of it search for information through Technorati.
I recommend Technorati for regular use.
Search the world wide web live from Technorati.

To get your latest articles, posts, web pages on Yahoo; start a blog, syndicate it, add to My Yahoo, and then write keyword rich content that brings your blog on the search results of Yahoo. From the posts on your web blog, give a link to your web site; or better still, make the content on your web site/web page an extension of the post on your blog.

Almost 70% of the visitors to my blog in the last few days have come through Yahoo search and that's the magic of RSS. Well done Yahoo.
