Poor Search Results from Yahoo Local

My God. The search engines need to get it right. Especially Yahoo Local.

I was just informed about the new Yahoo Local. Pretty nice on the surface, but underneath the search results are horrendous – meaning, they’re not relevant.

Here are some examples:

I went searching for “web design” (of course) in Alameda, CA. Here are some of the results.

  • 1st result – http://www.yippeeweb.com/. And I quote: “yippeeweb.com is no longer active”. Yippee.
  • Here’s another one – http://www.minotgraphix.com/. – “This site has been administratively suspended”.
  • And another – http://www.champagnedesignco.com/. Website “Coming Soon”

Are you kidding me? What is the point of searching if the results are to websites that are down or inactive?

There’s gotta be a way for these search engines (namely Yahoo) to recognize that a site is down or inactive and not provide a link to it, or better yet, remove it from my search.
