Why such a difference between Yahoo! and Google?
Have been slogging away with my website and basically the only real important SEO I've done was to build a relative Squidoo lens and submit my site to the search engines and a few directories. I haven't even done EZA and other article directories or serious back linking strategies, which I am ready to go for now.
I have used about 12 targeted keyword phrases and if I do a rank check (I use SEOBook's rank checker) all but one of my keywords are ranked with Yahoo!
It varies from # 115 to # 5 which I think is quite OK seeing I have not put in that much effort up to know.(7 in the top 20 - and the website has been live for only a month)
On the other hand I have, with Google, just 2 of the keywords ranked, one in position # 140 and the other 59.
This is my first experience with this and I thought there would be more of a similarity between the search engines ranking criteria? Also thought that Google loved Squidoo?
Any comments or help appreciated.
