Recent Yahoo SE update

posted on Aarons blog

..."To me it looks like they put more weight on exact match domain names, inbound link"

good stuff.

This probably explains my 4x increase in adsense rev. Question is how long will it last, these spikes usually seem to be just that, and are rarely sustainable - but its all welcomed.

Re: Recent Yahoo SE update

One thing I noticed, Yahoo is definitely ranking IDN.jp sites higher than the same IDN.com, even if the content is much weaker.

I made a test:

On the .com - 4 pages of original content
On the .jp - 1 page which contains a few paragraphs copied verbatim from the wikipedia page

The .jp is ranking at spot 16, the .com is somewhere around 50.

Next test will be to switch the content, where I put the original 4 page content on the .jp and see if it can make the front page.

Still, adsense is pretty much mirroring ND - the .com clicks are worth 4 times that of the .jp clicks.

Are both .com and .jp domains hosted on your Japanese in-country server?

No, ironically enough, they are both hosted on my Netherlands server.

Still, being on page two I got 113 adsense impressions and 11 (9.73% ctr) clicks in 1 day for the jp. Now I'll be happy if I can double the CTR and get the site on page one.

Re: Recent Yahoo SE update

Very interesting - thanks for post...

Of interest are you finding this for other ccTLD extensions as well e.g. .cn, .kr, or .de etc.?

Cheers - Asiaplay
