My Name Still Coming Up With Underscores, Why?

Recommended Posts

I had an offeding comment, but got webmaster to take off the page. But still he kept page live, but changed the titile and description to some long name and date in which my full name is still in there seperated by underscores (surrounded by lot of other words).

 

So, anyway, it re-cached and completely disappeared in Google for search on my full name.

 

but inexplicably it still comes up in Yahoo -- even after the re-cache there.

If you don't mind sharing the query, someone here who knows a bit about Yahoo might be able to provide some insight.

 

But if you're still not happy with what the site owner has done, and you believe the content is defaming you, you can contact the web host's abuse department (do a whois on the domain to find out who the host is).

No, it's been updated. you guys are both way off base in your analysis. Maybe there are not Yahoo folks here.

 

I'm wondering why Google is not parsing underscores, but Yahoo seems to be able to read.

 

For example:

 

this_website_joe_smith_united_states

On Joe Smith searches that would not come up in Google.

 

Ah, nevermind, got defnitive answer, Yahoo treat underscores as seperators.
