Yahoo not reading my permalinks, it indexes "/index.php?cat=61" (2 posts)

    While Google reads the permalinks perfectly well, I've noticed that Yahoo results show my blog as mysite.com/index.php?cat=61 rather than /category/nameofcategory

    Yahoo is not reading the permalinks for the posts either, something weird.

    Anybody knows why is Yahoo not reading the permalinks? I would like for them to work, to get more referrals from yahoo... now it's all Google.

    My guess is that someone somewhere linked to a crufty URL, and Yahoo cached it, and has been using that.

    Try using the permalinks redirect plugin.
