Yahoo Site Explorer Update



Yahoo has launched an update to their siteexplorer. Site Explorer is an interface for website operators/designers to log in to yahoo and authenticate their “ownership” over the site sot hat you can find more information over and control the ways the site is indexed. It’s fairly analogous to the Google Sitemaps feature that’s available in Google’s webmaster tools area. It’s good to see search companies letting users “peek behind the curtain” a bit, although I’m still wondering how effective these tools are.


I mean one of the problems int he google sitemaps groups were an impression that signing up with sitemaps and uploading a sitemap hurt the sites ranking in google. Now, this was denied as not possible, but some were convinced. It looks like these tools give more ways of controlling what’s indexed, however they’re not gaurantees of indexing, so…. how useful are they? The ability to see how the search engine sees your pages is interesting. In Google sitemaps they have summaries of words that are seen as keywords for your site. They also show approximately where you show up for certain search terms.

So far, I’ve gone through the authentication process for a number of domains hoping to try out Site Explorer and I’m still waiting for Yahoo to authenticate the sites, so…. maybe I’ll update here when I get a chance to see first hand what options there are in site explorer.
