Yahoo Ranks Me Better than Google

Threaded View
My site ( is currently listed in both the Yahoo and
Google index. When I do a fairly specific search for something like
'university of kentucky women's basketball', my site is the #1 site for
Yahoo and not listed in the top 50 from Google. Google lists a bunch of
sites of teams that have played UK (and so their content has nothing to
do with UK bball), but not mine.

Any suggestions on how to better my results in Google?

that's not quite it:

Add a page with

<title>University of Kentucky Women's Basketball</title>
<h1>University of Kentucky Women's Basketball</h1>

and then fill a reasonable sized page with text that a human would want to

The googlebot will like it too.

but don't stop there.

Do pages about the History of the team, about individaul players
(particularly the ones who might attaract interest from those casually

Where is the home base of the team ??

Do a page about it.

Is there something special about there home stadium

Do a page about it
Even if there isn't anything really special do a page about it

When you have done a couple of hundred pages, all with appropriate titles,
and <h1> tags come back and I will think of some more suggestions.

The above works for me!
