    Anchor text as title on Yahoo serps?

    I have seen quite a few questions about this subject but I haven't been able to find a real answer. Maybe someone can answer this for me.

    A client's website is ranked well in Google, Yahoo, and Bing. However, Yahoo, as of about a month ago, changed the title of the site to an achor text keyword, which is one of the keywords we are targeting, but it dropped over 10 positions. I have the following meta tag: <meta name="robots" content="index,follow,noodp,noydir" />, but it doesn't seem to help.

    Any ideas? I've never had this problem before.

    Does that page have a proper (and preferably unique) <title> element?

    Or is that page called "Home" or even worse "index.html" ?

    Or was it a spammy title in the first place?

    Surely there must be a reason why Yahoo! thought their version was better......

    Well. In that case: why are you wasting the most important on-page element (i.e. the <title> element) on the most useless keyphrase on the web?

    Is this really the phrase you're aiming for?

    Yahoo is in fact doing a very clever thing: they're guessing at what should be the best title for the page, instead of drowning the page in the huge pool of 1,120,020,016 results for "home page"

    Dude

    Second, just like Google, both Yahoo and Bing run plenty of real-time . Until Bing updates its SERPs again, putting the two engines back out of sync. .... results on its own, instead of pulling the title directly from the HTML tag. It contain keywords in the anchor text (which is about 10% more than Google).

    Search Engine Results Pages (SERP) are the pages displayed by search engines in response to a query by a searcher. The main component of the SERP is the listing of results that are returned by the search engine in response to a keyword query, although the pages may also contain other results such as advertisements
