The big secret to Ranking #1 in Yahoo

So yesterday I was chatting with a client, and he tells me that he’s really happy with his Google rankings…but feels he could do better in Yahoo. He then asks me if I could focus more on Yahoo.

I tell him that Yahoo just eats up big ole powerful sitewide links….but that Google doesn’t seem too keen on those types of links anymore. I then tell him that we should continue our current linking methods, and keep the focus on Google. His site ranks really good in Google, and OK in Yahoo – and I’ll take that.

Today I was reading a blog by a yahoo employee and saw a mention of a particular huge powerful site that I used to advertise on a few years ago, so I thought I’d check to see how the advertising is doing for those who are advertising there now….and man….people getting the sitewide links appear to be getting over 1.5 million backlinks and most are sitting at #1 in Yahoo for the phrase they’re targeting….most are new sites, and don’t do squat in Google (this site has the google PR block…and has for years)….but man oh man…look at Yahoo eat them links up and rank them sites at the top just on backlinks from this 1 site…..man, I miss when Google would eat that stuff up too. Don’t you?

Wanna know the secret to top Yahoo rankings? Buy huge sitewide links….but keep in mind, doing that might bite you in the ass with Google…..but then again, you’re choices with a new site are: 1. wait for several years to have a chance in Google. or #2 Aim for Yahoo with Huge Sitewide links and wait a few weeks.

…oh yea, and another thing about this site’s advertisors….most have Google adsense on the top of these pages….funny….Google block the PR and Value of the link….Yahoo doesn’t, and thus ranks the advertised sites at #1, and then Google pays them people $….. I’d say it’s a conspiracy….but sadly it’s not.
