In Search Leaders, Bloggers Band to Fight Comment Spam, Susan wrote the following based on an interview with me yesterday:
He said that since Yahoo doesn't host blogs itself, the use of the no-follow tag would take time to make its presence felt in Yahoo's index.
I hope I didn't say it that way during our phone conversation. Whether or not Yahoo has a blog hosting platform has little to do with the way no-follow support will be reflected in the Yahoo Search index.
This isn't a big problem, but if anyone was wondering what the relationship was, I wanted to make it clear that there isn't one. The cause-effect relationship implied does not exist.
Oh, and I was amused that she called me "a Yahoo marketing executive" in the paragraph above that. Not that job titles matter, but it is the first time I've been accused of being something that important sounding. :-)
