> Pages Yahoo Wants and Wants Not

    * Pages that harm accuracy, diversity or relevance of search results
    * Pages dedicated to directing the user to another page
    * Pages that have substantially the same content as other pages
    * Sites with numerous, unnecessary virtual hostnames
    * Pages in great quantity, automatically generated or of little value
    * Pages using methods to artificially inflate search engine ranking
    * The use of text that is hidden from the user
    * Pages that give the search engine different content than what the
      end-user sees
    * Excessively cross-linking sites to inflate a site's apparent popularity
    * Pages built primarily for the search engines
    * Misuse of competitor names
    * Multiple sites offering the same content
    * Sites that use excessive pop-ups, interfering with user navigation
    * Pages that seem deceptive, fraudulent or provide a poor user experience 

This UseNet post will no longer be of much value. Likewise,
http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/basics/basics-18.html will no longer

    * Original and unique content of genuine value
    * Pages designed primarily for humans, with search engine considerations 
    * Hyperlinks intended to help people find interesting, related content, 
      when applicable
    * Metadata (including title and description) that accurately describes 
      the contents of a web page
    * Good web design in general
