    If you buy a paid listing from Yahoo read this

    Here is a post I read on Jim Boykin's SEO blog today:

    When filling out the form for submitting your site to the Yahoo, it is required that: (according to this page )

    "If your site is commercial, the title submitted must be the company name. Any request to change a business name to something other than its actual name will not be accepted. "

    So if my company name is "Bob Jones Inc." then there is no debate about what my Title will be.

    I can understand (maybe) if this was how you show names in a DIRECTORY LISTING (as in a phone book, since you know youíre in the correct Category when youíre digging down).

    BUT, I canít understand why Iíd pay you $299 to take away my coded title tag of what might be "Bob Jones Sells Gas Grills and Cooking Supplies - Free Shipping" and replace it with "Bob Jones Inc." in a SEARCH RESULT PAGE.

    This guy runs We Build Pages and just launched this blog maybe a week ago. He certainly knows what he is doing, definately some good info on it: http://www.jimboykin.com/
