Yahoo And The Parsing Issue
Posted 22 May 2008 - 10:36 PM
I know that if I put an underscore between my first and last name, it'll probably disappear from Google.
But I also remember that Yahoo parses underscores. So if this does not work with Yahoo, does anyone have any ideas? thanks.

What about dashes, or what about anything?
I can't make the other site beat the current site without putting in hundreds of hours of work. The first site is also 10 years older and html based vs flash.

Maybe its better to go in another direction.
Or, to simply put the page in a directory where you can exclude it from being indexed in the first place (via robots.txt).

I have other sites that I want to be #1, & #2 for my name search.
So I just put an underscore in Title homepage John_Smith shoes.
And I did same for the homepage for text on page.
And I even did a sitewide underscore. (working on a sitewide title underscore)
Only thing that worries me is that the site is called johnsmith.com
And it's has always for years come up #1 for searches on my name, so I'm worred this may not be easy to do.
( john smith is just an example name. In short, I still need the older site to index and SEO well, but if someone hears about me from a friend, referral, I now have newer, better designed flash sites I would prefer getting the #1 rank on a pure name search) I have put in an email to the desingers of my new flash sites, but I "think" it will be easier to reduce the rank of the older html site for john smith, than to raise it of the newer flash site. I'm not sure of anything really yet.

The other advantage of this approach is that your new splash page would likely lose ranking anyway given that it had less content.
Would that perhaps achieve the various objectives you have, kevs?
