How to increase Yaho traffic (rank high in Google already).
How to increase traffic from Yahoo (rank high in Google already).

Msg#: 4267410 posted 4:32 pm on Feb 15, 2011 (gmt 0)

I have approx 220,000 pages indexed in Google but only 5,200 indexed in Yahoo. I really want to increase the Yahoo traffic to my site as the conversion rate is actually higher from Google.

Is there anything concrete I can do to increase Yahoo traffic when my site is already structured well for SEO in terms of Google?

If anyone has any good articles on the key differences between the Yahoo and Google search engines that would be great to send them on.

Thanks very much

Welcome to WebmasterWorld walrus1980!

Since Yahoo! search results are now supplied by Bing have you signed up in Bing's webmaster area and submitted a sitemap file?

Have you declared a sitemap in robots.txt?

Does your site when scanned with a link checking tool like Xenu report as many pages (220,000)?
