Yahoo using title tags instead of directory titles.

  • Print Friendly

One of the complaints about being in the Yahoo Directory is that very often one’s carefully crafted title was replaced by the directory title and description. Today Barry, rustybrick, noticed a change. The on-page title is being selected over the directory title. As the SEW forum thread notes, this is a good move on Yahoo’s part as the title tag is more likely to be up to date and accurate.

It remains to be seen if this is a permanent change or just an experiment.
