    Usually it's the other way around, 95% of my organic traffic is from the big G. My site and pages are indexed with them fine.

    Backlinks were collected with scrapebox (not huge blasts), some senuke. Could big G have blocked my site, or is a temporary sandbox? Thanks for any help.

    Where are you in the serps on the two search engines? Probably just a case of you are ranking in Yahoo but not Google yet. Even though ranking in Yahoo gets less traffic if you are on page 1 in Yahoo and page 5 in Google you will probably get more from Yahoo.

    I experience the same, which has kind of ticked me off, but I am trying to look at it as a good thing...

    For about 3 or 4 of my sites, I am first page, first position in Yahoo and approx 3-5 page on Google... Yahoo brings decent traffic for my niches, but if I could push myself up Google, I would be doing great...

    To kuzmanin 's point I have observed that Yahoo tends to rank new pages quicker than Goggle.
