Yahoo - LinkedIn

Yahoo gets LinkedIn

Yahoo - LinkedIn
Yahoo – LinkedIn

So I was working on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Progress reports for the site and checking CSKnet’s stats on Yahoo… (Website now dead)

And found that Yahoo is getting LinkedIn…In more ways than one.

I wanted to see who Yahoo thought was linking to “craigkiessling.com,” and to remove consideration of links from “craigkiessling.com.” (Links to a site from the same site are internal links, not inbound nor incoming links)

So off to www.yahoo.com I went with my Search Engine queries. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts, I hit gold and my query was this: “linkdomain:craigkiessling.com -site:craigkiessling.com

Voila! Yahoo! pulled up my profile from LinkedIn.com, extracted the relevant data, and displayed it within its SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages).

This search engine actually “searched”.

Rarely I say this, so…Nice job, Yahoo!
