Yahoo slow to update with my site relaunch
could something be wrong?

I relaunched an existing site in early September and all search engines picked up on it and are now showing the new site, and I'm doing pretty well!

All except Yahoo that is.

I'm starting to wonder if there's a problem or if Yahoo is just 'slower' than other search engines. Google has picked up the new site and all old, dead pages are gone and only new pages show. Same with MSN, Ask, etc. But Yahoo is still showing a large number of old pages, as well as not picking up many of the new ones. Could there be a problem?

I read somewhere that Yahoo doesn't like affiliate links. While I have a decent number of affiliate links, my site isn't ALL affiliate links. We're definetely not any type of 'web mall' or some other such spammy site. We offer up loads of legitimate content, loads of non affiliate links, but a good amount of affiliate links too. Could this be an issue?

Other sites I've launched (fresh launch, not re-launch) were picked up in Yahoo first, but my relaunced site seems to be slow to update. Any ideas?

In my experience, Yahoo is much slower to rank new pages than Google or MSN.
