The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) goes into effect January 01 2020. What is it and is your business prepared?
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 â€“ meaning, theyâ€™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 And I quote: “yippeeweb.com is no longer active”.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.
- Hereâ€™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?
Thereâ€™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.
