one thing I have noticed over the past year is I used to be higher up in yahoo then google but over the last year my yahoo page placement has slipped while in google I have climbed much farther towards the top. I read over my site all the time and make little changes to make it read better and sometimes add a paragraph with a little more info and place keywords in different places that of course make sense but at the same time knowing not to have too many keywords in the article most often I will only have 4 keywords for every 1000 words.
So as I make everything better as I said it goes up in google and either stays in the same place on yahoo or goes a little backwards. Most of my pages are in the top 5 pages of both yahoo and google but have flip flopped as to which search engine it is higher in. I would think that improving my sites pages I would move higher up in both but it doesn't seem like yahoo is keeping up with things, bing as well.
Yahoo index shows 30 pages while google shows 84 pages indexed and I have done nothing different between both. For a long time every time I would add a page I would update my site map with both bing and google webmaster tools but haven't done that in a while so I don't understand why bing and yahoo only show one third as many pages indexed as google.
