    Different search results
    The search ranking for my keyword reported different results in yahoo search.com, .uk, and .in. Why is it so ?

    Hi,

    Maybe the spiders are different. Their measure of a site importance might be different. Like google spider is different to msn.

    Might be one of the reasons. It is not just you though...

    Most search engines weight pages to some degree based on where they are located, for example, a site hosted in the UK on a UK extension will rank better in the UK than the exact same site hosted elsewhere with a different extension. Of course there are tons of other factors used when ranking sites, but that is one reason why you see different ranking in different country specific engines.

    As people have said, different country searches use different data to build the results. This is just how it works...
