    Got it loaded up, but where do I find the data to create a Yahoo slurp useragent? I can pull some from my own logs, but that seems to be only partial data.

    HTTP/1.0 Mozilla/5.0+(compatible;+Yahoo!+Slurp;+http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/slurp) should work. You will see ads etc. disappear in the search, and the url to the results are direct urls except for some.

    Use this:

    Code:
    Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Yahoo! Slurp; http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/slurp)
    And in case you accidentilly overwrite it, my default is:

    Code:
    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8.0.9) Gecko/20061206 Firefox/1.5.0.9

    Skitz is very clear about what behaviour caused him to start this site up. His ego is way too big and fully engaged - rmccarley

    It was just too much text. I couldn't read it. - rmccarley

    Ok, I assume the other fields in the default useragent can be blank.

    Once I've added a new useragent, do I move it to the top to get it to work? Just highlight it and clock OK? How do I know it's doing what it's supposed to do?

    Sorry for all the questions.

    n/m. Figured it out.

    BTW, with the Yahoo user agent, the results were the same. No cloaking (which is actually too bad - I wouldn't have minded getting them de-indexed in G).

    Is the cache showing in G...?

    Also, they might be cloaking by IP... more of a pain in the ass to do, but that way your competitors can't easily check on you.

    Double check me, is the number one result for [Missouri traffic tickets] an example of this?

    Pops covered this issue in hist latest SEO Blog post.

    Accoriding to a thread in our SEO Forum and a post at SEO-Scoop, Yahoo is including pay-per click ads in it’s organic listings. To the casual observer, the ads are indistinguishable from regular listings leading some to question whether Yahoo! is selling rankings in their search engine result pages (SERPs) as well.[More...]
