Introducing Yahoo Stores

Thought this would be relevant for a lot of people on here.


Seems especially relevant given the claims that templated websites can't provide proper SEO, etc.:
A great website can only attract customers if they can find it. Yahoo Stores provides automatic SEO - so from day one, your store will have the same serving technology used on Yahoo.com, including relevant keywords in your website URLs, concise descriptions of your website’s content and more. Yahoo Stores also has a powerful product catalog schema and tools for merchants to organize and promote their products. The setup is simple, with powerful capabilities informed by years of experience working with major retailers.

It’s also faster and easier to create a beautiful website with Themes, new online storefront designs with color and style guides that go beyond templates to automatically respond and adapt across mobile phones, tablets and desktop. We’ve also introduced a simple editing process, so changes can be made directly to your website with no preview required. You don’t need to be technical or know html to make easy edits — change titles, pictures, descriptions and more with no second guessing.

SEO is a buzzword I'm so tired of seeing.
H1 tags, h2 tags, titles, descriptions, alt tags, keyword density, etc etc, all have minimal affect on your search engine ranking.
Sure title and in an H1 tag is going to be good, but the rest is pretty much crap. People are far too worried about their on page SEO.
ANd too many companies are taking advantage of "SEO Ready".

In closing, Yahoo sucks, and probably will never do anything newsworth again.

Those are the old school, the h1 h2 alt, meta description no longer helps since a lot of people are abusing it, now what it matter all the original & quality content that generated from the site itself, and where the referring hyperlink that it goes, things can get to real complicated out there!
