differences between Google, Yahoo, MSN & Ask - thread

Hello everyone,

I think I know about a couple of differences in the ranking algorithms of Google, Yahoo and MSN (and remember reading about Ask that their algorithm was based on "hubs"), but I find this topic pretty interesting and was curious what other factors you guys have witnessed?

How would you optimize a website if you were paid to optimize for Yahoo or for MSN (or for Ask) as opposed to Google?

Re: differences between Google, Yahoo, MSN & Ask - thread

Hi,

did you mean aren't? or did you really mean are? I know aaron wall writes in his e-book that when it comes to filtering out low quality things it was like google > yahoo > msn (msn being the worst at it).

Do you (or anyone else) know if this has changed or do yahoo and esp. msn still lag behind?
