    For my blog, I rank #5 in Yahoo for a pretty competitive keyword, even beating the site that has the keyword for its domain name (300,000,000 results, 1 mil searches on Google a month). Yahoo is first to spider my site, and yahoo ranks some of my deeper pages high for certain keywords I never knew existed. Yahoo also says I have like 400 backlinks. It's like Yahoo is humping my site right now.

    But what about Google? I don't even appear in the top 100 pages for that keyword I mentioned. Google says I have 20 backlinks, and I'm not getting any love.

    :confused:

    Absolutely nothing lol. I put my effort into Google, and get nothing. All I do for Yahoo is use XML Sitemaps Wordpress plugin, which pings Yahoo whenever I make a post. I never even bothered to submit the sitemap directly to Yahoo though.

    Ranking at Yahoo is a piece of cake. Good on page seo and a few good backlinks and you are done

    Well I can only manage to get ranked well in Google, and can't really rank well in Yahoo. Although I don't really try either.

    Yahoo will show more back links then Google, its just how it always is. Yahoo uses different algos then Google and is easier to game then Google, but with I think something like 11% market share, most people don't go after it too heavily.

    If you are worrying about trying to get indexed, then you have a lot more to worry about cause you will never rank for anything. If you do any kind of link building at all Yahoo will index you as well as G and B.
