If you are ranking well on Google, it is not necessary that you will rank well on Yahoo! too. Both search engines follow different parameters in their algorithms to calculate the relevancy of the website. e.g. Google doesn't count all the backlinks but Yahoo! does. Further, Google does not take into account the keyword tag but Yahoo! does

I created a subdomain this year to target a particular set of keywords. It ranks well in G, MSN, and also ranks #4 in Yahoo.com for the target keyword. The main domain wasn't previously on the first page.
Have you cjecked to make sure it's indexed by Yahoo?

Thanks for the insight guys. Like Vicky said, I'm not so much worried about lack of ranking in Yahoo! - just curious as to why. I've never tracked a site that ranked well in Google and MSN but had no visibility in Yahoo!. Perhaps checking to see if it's indexed will be the best solution?
