What is the meaning of this?

My site surfaced in the third place on yahoo (of about 5,050,000 results). The sites around mine have PR8 or above. The funny thing is that my site has a respectful PR0 :-)

How is it possible for my site to be in the third place?

its an act of Yahoo Gods... Google Gods are not as resilient.

My web site is #9 on yahoo for the Example keyphrase: My Web Site and my domain is mywebsite.com with a pr 5 and most of the sites above me are pr3 and 4.

I've never been able to figure out yahoo though maybe I should start trying since I don't understand google anymore either, though at least I'm ranked #1 for THAT term there.

Yahoo Gods know nothing of that thing called PR.

They use a very complicated formula based upon the number of buy/strong buy/sell/strong sell/hold/do not disclose sentiments on the various Yahoo finance boards that have links pointed to your site.

Thank you for your replies folks. This is really strange... two search engines but so different approaches to finding relevant answers to the users queries :-) I guess, I have to sacrifice a bull to the Yahoo Goods.
