Are you listed in the Yahoo directory? Seems to have a large influence on Yahoo rankings.

On my established sites Yahoo accounts for a little under 10% of the search engine but it’s usually somewhat erratic and I have never tried to optimize for Yahoo I only optimize for Google and let the others join if they want.

Try a wordpress blog that is the future it is SEO friendly and the search engines have no issues caching and ranking these pages.

I agree with Karen…whats the fuss on using Yahoo if there is no return on your effort optimizing the site..cheers.

I see the same thing happening in Bing as well.
