Yahoo overture for japanese is wrong..

I have seen a lot of terms with high overture ~XXXXX and then when I see the google results it says ~x,xxx,xxx pages, but after the second page all the pages have been omited as they are the same result. so, that practically means there are no searches.

I tried for a lot of different terms, and the first page is always yahoo. looks like all these high overture results are because of yahoo clicks.

This is my understanding of the thing, if I have missed out soemthing, I would like to be corrected.

Re: Yahoo overture for japanese is wrong..

Yes, that's what I was saying in another thread. If the word is a long compound and exactly matches the title of a fairly high-up-in-the-hierarchy Yahoo! directory category (or one which is suggested for a lot of varied searches within a given niche) then I believe the traffic is counted as coming "from" such searches, even though they were never actually searches in the first place.

A (fictional) example might illustrate this more clearly.

Yahoo! Home - Arts -> Writing -> Early Metaphysical Poets

If the "Early Metaphysical Poets" category came up as an option at the top of the search results for a lot of varied poetry searches, and people clicked to view the category, then each click might be recorded as a "search" for "early metaphysical poets" even though in fact nobody's searching the subject that way.

The above is valid for Yahoo! Japan - Yahoo! US presents categories within search results in a different way and so (may/is) not subject to the issue.
