    you would have to be a lot more specific it could just mean you are currently ranking better for yahoo.

    I have a keyword number 1 on yahoo 85million competition but nothing on google. Its just a sign of the different algorithms.

    Well, I made few sites in the past and for all google gave me 2Xyahoo or maybe 3Xyahoo.
    This time for all my new sites yahoo brings me one and half google. Why should i rank better, I optimize for same terms.

    two different search engines, you arent going to get the same results every time. yahoo likes your site better then google for what you're ranking for.

    Another thing I noticed getting ranked higher in yahoo is a sign your on page optimization is good but your back links aren't yet for google to rank you high.

    It seems yahoo puts more emphasis on perfect on page optimization

    You right, but its google fault, let me explain.
    I build links every day - each day a different, but related keyword.
    Google don't give 2cents on my content but on anchor keywords, I can tell you because I have over 100 sites and i check stats 4-5times/day.
    Also bounce rate from google ix 2X bigger than yahoo.
    So if I build links with a new keyword anchor today, tomorrow google will send me traffic from that keyword. Isn't that stupid?

    And I have lots of funny pictures on my sites, still my sites are not in google images after 3 weeks, that could be a sign of penalty ?

    My links are like this: main sites <- senuke <- link farm evolution <- scrape box.

    Should I abandon my cheap links strategy and look forward for high page rank back links ?

    I also track my backlinks and view a graph of them with market samurai. Do you do this if so whats your backlink one like? Have you built backlinks to fast to get penalised?

    how old is the domain?

    Do your images have alt tags they get indexed a lot easyer with alt tags

    Nope, my sites are not going down in traffic but they increase too slow. I don't build more than 20 links/ day/ site.

    My domains are .infos 2 months old, I started promote them 3 weeks ago.

    I don't interlink them still are on the same ip and similar themes.

    Like wulf2ram said, you are getting more traffic from yahoo because apparently you're seo is better optimized for yahoo, and also google's algorithm is a lot more concerned with backlinks.

    If you are building links everyday using different keywords, then you're watering down your relevancy. You say you have a higher bounce rate from google. That' probably because of all those keywords your backlinks are anchored to.

    You say when you build links with a new keyword, the next day you start getting traffic for that keyword. That's not stupid, thats great!!! Your just choosing the wrong keywords and turning up in google's serps for searches that aren't as relevant as you think. When the searcher does see your link in the serp and clicks on it they are disappointed and leave right away.

    Try looking at the search terms that people are using to find your site. Choose the most relevant ones and start concentrating on those keywords when you're anchoring your backlinks.

    As far as abandoning your cheap links and going for high pr backlinks? The answer is yes and no.
    Yes start targetting some high pr backlinks, just a few of those can be better than a lot of pr0 links.
    No don't abandon your cheap links, if you are adding links one day and getting traffic the next, then apparently those backlinks are having a good result.

    Just fine tune the keywords your targetting in your backlinks and you'll see a difference in your stats.

    Since I started this topic my g traffic grows slowly, today I have a little spike, g. traffic will be +90% bigger than yahoo traffic. Yesterday was aprox equal. But the bouncing rate is also bigger, around 60% so I expect the traffic will be lower in the next days until the b.r. goes back to 45-55%... I'm still unhappy with my traffic, 100+ sites - 500uv/daily that's less than 5uv/day :(

    Google does not like new sites. Give it some time.

    Have you checked that you are in the main index? Obviously, your ranking may be higher within Yahoo.
