Dear all:<br>
<br>
FYI - see attachments. We are currently in contact with Yahoo trying to
find out if it is just a matter of time until our showcase page at <br>
<br>
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://www.heppnetz.de/searchmonkey/product.html">http://www.heppnetz.de/searchmonkey/product.html</a><br>
<br>
will appear in the Yahoo results with price and product picture - or
whether there are additional technical problems to be mastered.<br>
<br>
In general, it will likely help if you <br>
<br>
a) register your sites in the Yahoo Site Explorer at<br>
<br>
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/">https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/</a><br>
<br>
b) authenticate your page by the respective procedure requested by
Yahoo (either uploading a special file or inserting special markup
provided by Yahoo).<br>
<br>
Best wishes<br>

Okay, thanks - good to know.

When I invoke the Yahoo validator, I still get the the message

"
1. Cached Data Does Not Match

The data stored in the Yahoo! Search Index doesn't match the data just 
retrieved from the live version. This is normal if you just changed your 
page  simply wait for us to recrawl and reindex your page."

So are you sure that " the cache is now in sync"?

If so, why are the price and product image not shown in the 
<a class="moz-txt-link-abbreviated" href="http://www.yahoo.com">www.yahoo.com</a> search results?

I can see only the review meta-data, but not the price etc.

By the way - if that helps: I noticed that the sub-site had not been 
properly authenticated in the Yahoo Site Explorer, but that is now fixed.

Do pages have to be properly authenticated via the standard Yahoo 
techniques for their meta-data to be displayed in the search results?

Best wishes

Martin
