Yahoo Microsoft Search Alliance

Finally Yahoo and Bing search alliance started from today ie 3rd August 2011. Yahoo announced that they are now ready to transition Yahoo! Organic Search Results (non-paid listings found on the main body of the Yahoo!) to Microsoft. The organic search transition will begins on August 3rd 2011 for Yahoo! European properties in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.

Following are the screenshots of search result of Yahoo UK and Bing UK for the same keyword "Data Recovery Software":-

You can see that the results are same in both the search engines. Now if you want to get better ranking on Yahoo then only optimize your site for Bing and you will automatically get the same ranking on Yahoo. So just Review the Bing webmaster tools and optimise your website for the Bing crawler, to help ensure your site is prominently listed in both Yahoo! and Bing organic search results.

Also note that Yahoo! is NOT transitioning paid search results at this time, and you should continue managing your Yahoo! Search Marketing account as usual.

Facebook Spam to Untag Yourself in YouTube Video

Today I received a wall post from one of my very close friend and the post was associated with a YouTube video with the message "wtf divakar you should untag yourself in this video". I opened the video but that was not playing and following message was written inside the video:-

Click You Address Bar
Press Ctrl + V
Press Enter

I very much surprised that what is this and also posted comment that this video is not playing.

Again after some time I received another wall post from some other friend with little bit change in massage "WTF!! divakar I can't believe you're in this vid". Again video was not opening and same above massage was showing.

After this I thought that there is something fishy behind this wall post and I guessed that it must be some kind of Spam. I started searching and found that my guess is correct. Many people was attacked this kind of spam which comes with different related messages. So please don't click on any of your wall post having video with any of the following type of massage:-

1. OMG name you should untag yourself in this vid
2. OMG name why are you in this vid
3. hey name you look so stupid in this vid
4. hey name why are you in this vid
5. hey name i can’t believe youre tagged this vid
6. ROTFL name what are you doing in this vid
7. Yo name why are you tagged in this vid
8. Yo name I can’t believe you are tagged in this vid
9. WTF name you should untag yourself in this vid
10. WTF name what are you doing in this vid
11. WTF name you look so stupid in this vid

The main aim of this spam wall post is to get the user click on the Video which actually does not load any video but infects the user as victim and now similar posts will be posted on the victim’s friends wall.

My main motive about this blog post is to aware the user about this spam and I would like to suggest peoples not to click on such type of spam wall post. Also please just report this video as spam and remove this spam from your news feed.
