Thread: Inaccurate Yahoo Search Result

  1. #1

    Default Inaccurate Yahoo Search Result

    The company I work for specializes in heavy gauge stamping. A search result on Yahoo shows our website as: rockfordtoolcraft.com, dropping the www, the link does not work. Using other search engines like Google and AOL, the proper result shows.

    http://www.rockfordtoolcraft.com/heavystamping.html

    Does anyone have any insight as to why this may be happening only on Yahoo and who I might contact to correct this problem?

    Thank you.

    I am very surprised that your web hosting company does not have a 301 redirect to cover www and non www references.

    This is basic web hosting 101

    You should put a htaccess file in your domain root to temporarily cover this and contact your host so that they can make a permanent correction in their server settings.

    Here is info on how you can create a 301 redirect in a htaccess file This will only work if you are hosted on a *nix server NOT a windows server:

    If you are hosted on a windows server you can use vbscript to create a temporary 301 redirect until your host edits IIS and makes a permanent one

    Thank you for all of the information. I contacted the web host and they said
    they would correct the problem.
