Yes, checked the site from several other IP addresses, including different cities. Comes up # 1 on yahoo from all of them.

All I can say is somebody has to be stealing the traffic I am sure you have clicked on the listings as well and looked in the logs to see if they are being sent to your site as this just doesn't make sense
if they are competitive you are getting hits as yahoo gets enough traffic for that as our main traffic sender is yahoo
If you have checked and the have seen the referral from this search then
1-the term isn't as competitive as you say
2-I don't have a clue

Would you kindly explain more about how to check logs?
The industry is payment processing.

"Would you kindly explain more about how to check logs?"
Bring the search up that has your site number 1 and click on the search it should take u to your sits home page. move around your site.
Now in your server logs or however you track traffic you should see yahoo as the referring agent and the keyword that brought the visitor to the site.
If you don't then how do you not know you arn't getting any traffic?
how are you tracking the traffic you are getting?

Do you have a traffic analysis package on the website
Are you aware of the fact that several browsers no longer deliver the referrer information
are you simply relying on a hit counter an feeling that you should be getting more visits for your ranking on Yahoo
Tell us how many visits per day you get

How many searches does this term get in a month? If nobody is searching on the term, you're not going to get any clicks. I found that the key to search term selection is to find the following:
A minimum of 100 searches in Overture
Less than 1,500 competing pages in Yahoo and Google for that term. (be sure to place the phrase in quotes)
