Sorry, forgot to post the resolution to this! So it was a forwarding thing as suspected but my SPF rules in DNS were overly strict and didn't allow for forwarding - hence SPF failed. Changing from -all to ~all sorted it.

Two things to consider: Email forwarding happens on the internet. This could be a case of someone running their own @example.org server but then forwarding all email to Yahoo (eventually landing in an @yahoo.com mailbox). People do this all the time 'cause they like the UI of the final destination better or its just easier to manage. DKIM can survive ...

Here is Yahoo's documentation for their sitemap ping. At the top there is a prominent notification that Yahoo webmaster tools have moved to Bing webmaster tools. That is why the ping times out. It is no longer supported and you should use Bing webmaster tools instead. Here are the instructions for submitting sitemaps to Bing. It includes the ping URL: ...

Caching is done on the search engine's servers, so there isn't much you can do about it. it is outside your direct control since you are at the mercy of specific search engines re-indexing you. You can (and should) sign up for Bing and Google webmaster tools (Yahoo is part of Bing's tools). This will give you an opportunity to let them know you've updated ...

I can't really speak for Yahoo but in case of Bing, submit request about "Outdated cache removal" Read more about this here: http://www.bing.com/webmaster/help/bing-content-removal-tool-cb6c294d Please note, that all search engines eventually crawl over your web pages again. It's just a matter of time.

You really don't need to. Crawlers will find you on their own. However, if you would like to help that process a bit then include your domains in Google Webmaster Tools and Bing Webmaster Tools. Both will provide you with a number of "helpful" stats on your site as well. Also, make sure that you have an XML sitemap on your site. It will assist the crawlers ...

Firstly on yahoo if I use site:https://www.example.com/ using https Yahoo declares 121 results. But site:http://www.example.com/ or site:example.com declares 1300 results. Why would this be? Different search engines will index your pages differently and the site: tool across these different search engines could also work differently. You wouldn't ...

Google and Bing do not have a function such as Yandex to tell them what is the original source of the content. Google will generally go on the first version that was indexed and Bing is possibly the same. Google can get it wrong though, so if you see sites out ranking yours with your content, you can file a DMCA take down request: Digital Millennium ...

.html and seo-url/ both looks same for search engines as I know,if them both readable by human. Example : my-seo-url.html my-seo-url/ my-seo-url Here is a nice article to read. https://moz.com/blog/15-seo-best-practices-for-structuring-urls

No. It makes no difference. On the contrary, one could argue that shorter and cleaner urls are better than adding the file extension like in this case. This is the same thing that Google says in this vlog.

I dont know any way to unrank a page for spesific keyword, the only think that would work is removing from your page (H1, Title, Descriptions, p) which are related to the keyword. This is what John Muller said about the specific matter: If you rank for a phrase that you don't want to rank for, there's not much you can do other than make sure that your ...

Its not possible to remove keyword from index, only whole page(s) If you make image with text, that keyword, it will leave index. (but looks not perfect) Next Im not sure following will work, but try to split keyword to few tags, like <span>key</span><span>word</span>. And 3 way, replace chars in word with similar chars from other ...

Since the implementation of DMARC on our server we get feedback reports from Yahoo, stating we do not publish a "policy" which therefore cannot be evaluated (to my understanding). If you're getting this from the XML excerpt you shared, are you assuming the <p>none</p> is stating there is no policy published? In this case none IS the policy that ...

1) For ranking, it will definitely not help but in regarding indexing it will definitely help for sure. 2)Well if you do well with your websites, do not need to have ping and anything for it. 3)No not available

There is no way to have 100% control over how your site looks in search results. Search engines have complicated algorithms that choose the snippet that shows up in search results. The same page may show different snippets for different queries. Here are some tips: Provide a meta-description. Search engines usually prefer the meta description over ...

In addition to Stephen's comment, Baidu is little bit insecure. As SEO concerned, just do everything as you are doing with google and it'll all be fine. Amount of traffic that Baidu and Bing provide versus amount of traffic that google provides is best explained in this picture below. For December 2012, the search landscape was like this: Google: 114.7 ...

Yes. Use exact match to more precisely match your keyword and lower your costs. While you'll get fewer impressions, you may get a higher click-through rate (CTR), because your ad is shown to an audience looking for exactly what you’re advertising. The higher click through rate in Bing, the higher relevancy you'll get, and the more chances of becoming more ...

I agree with previous comments but am "answering" this question so it doesn't come up as unanswered. There is nothing about that page that makes me think it's a doorway page. If you had a separate domain, rather than a help subdomain, it might be more of a concern. That said, a bit more (unique) content couldn't hurt, I doubt that page even has 250 words ...

According to Yahoo’s documentation for webmasters, yes, they use Bing’s index for Yahoo Search, and they don’t mention any geographic restriction: Are you a webmaster or website owner looking to remove your webpage(s) from Yahoo Search? Search results on Yahoo Search are now powered by Bing. […] In the footer of their SERPs, it says "Powered by ...

It seems so. I did some research and I am finding that Yahoo! will use Bing for search period. It seems that Yahoo! is giving up running a search engine despite the fact that they own Inktomi which was one of the worlds larges indexes at one time even rivaling Google. It is seen as a way to drastically cut costs by removing the most expensive part of search ...

EDIT: As Martin points out, Bing can still index the site with SSL links in SERPS even though it errors on SNI -- the error occurs before the following results. The following is arbirtary for the question. Bing does support SNI [Edit: as in it can still successfully index SSL links]. Im looking at a multidomain multiSSL via SNI setup right now, clicking the ...

Yahoo does support the AJAX crawling scheme. You can see this by testing the index of an ajax site: In Yahoo, search for site:ajax.rswebanalytics.com - this will show the ajax urls.

Publish new content linking to your HP. This will force search engines to recrawl. I found this helps (at least it speeds up the process), above all if you add some new content to the HP too (search engines will eventually compare your website with the content cached and update).

Google Analytics does require tagging to distinguish organic and paid traffic. If traffic does not have utm tags, then Google assumes that it is organic. If you have an affiliate parameter on the URL that is not a utm parameter, you can use JavaScript to inform Google Analytics about the campaign: ga('set', 'campaignName', 'Affiliates'); ga('set', '...
