How yahoo works?





badai
Can anybody explain?

my problem is, if i search my domain, it will list 2 porn sites. that's a big problem. is there any way to solve it?

other search engines are smart enough to put my site at the top.

what do you search for?
i mean whats the search query!!
badai
www.2-u.com.my and 2-u.com.my

lucky for me i accidentally type it on the yahoo search instead of address bar. you know, some people still need to look on their keyboard while typing...
badai
well, just go to http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/search/spam_abuse.html

and they will attend to you immediately. now all the porn are gone.

dont report as spam!!

I cant see any result on the search page.

visit http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=2-u.com.my
badai
u didn't see because they already removed it. i report there and select adult result for non adult search, and they get back to me to saying thanks for bringing it to their attention blah, blah, blah .... and they removed the listing.

actually i never thought they will do anything when i submit the report, but they did took it seriously and act very fast on it.
badai
u know what, the nasty result just come back... worst!!!

before, only 2 results. now 2 pages of porn.

and yahoo still didn't reply to me after 3 days.

their search engine sucks, and their SafeSearch filter just don't work. what kind of dirty words they filter anyway.

It's because Yahoo sucks.

I don't like Yahoo Search, I never use it. I tried submitting my site a long time ago, I don't think it was ever added. Besides, I wouldn't think it was worth while if this was happening. My only suggestion is to send them another email and wait. If it doesn't get fixed then don't use Yahoo anymore. Wink

it's not me. i stop using yahoo long time ago. but other people still using it, and i just found out there are people out there who have yahoo / google toolbar installed on their browser type the url directly on the toolbar instead of their browser address bar.

this kind of people is the one who will see those search result and have no idea that it's yahoo. they will keep asking me why my website is associated with all those porn.

for the rest of us, we already knew there are no issue here, but try to explain what yahoo is to those people.
