    Google ranking = Horrible, Yahoo ranking is nice


    My yahoo ranking is very, very nice #20 but my keyword is NO WHERE IN SITE. In fact, my site's name comes up as #3. #1 and #2 are sites where I asked for opinons on my site. Is there any way to help improve my site's ranking on google but maintain/improve yahoo's ranking?

    Thanks

    It looks like your site is new and has few, if any backlinks. Google only has 3 pages indexed, and 2 of them are your home page (one under mapletip.com and one under www.mapletip.com) which it is seeing as duplicate content.

    - First, have mapletip.com redirect (301) to www.
    - Second, start getting links from other sites to your site.
    - Third, read the FAQ for this forum (there is a link at the top of the forum) and follow the info in it. You have a lot of things you can do to help improve the optimization of you site. I'd strongly recommend reading and puting what you learn into practice, then come back and ask more specific questions as they come up. You'll get much more (and more valuable) assistance that way.

    Good luck.
