    My 9 month old site has 36 pages indexed by google, yet only 1 on yahoo according to a backlink checking site.

    But I'm still high enough on page 1 on yahoo for a competitive search term :/

    What should I do ? Would It be a good idea to ping some of my articles?

    Thanks

    Yahoo is a little slow ... Has always been slow indexing pages. Stupid, well some things about yahoo can be pretty dumb as well.

    Most of the times Yahoo makes no sense to me. Yet I rank well with it so I don't bother that much.

    If your top google does it really matter do peole even use yahoo besides old people? Every Internet search program ie firefox chrome safari all use google unless you change it to yahoo but why would any one do that?

    Submit your XML sitemap to Bing webmaster tools. This will help with the indexing rate as Yahoo uses Bing's algorithm.
