Does anyone have any idea after attending the conference or speaking with Tim as to the time and or frequency of a Yahoo update "dance" schedule?

>>>as well as our main crawl which updates our index incrementally twice per week<<<<

haven't seen this occurring, nor any change in rankings, that is why I asked

I agree that I haven't seen this happening either.

Yahoo Slurp visits our sites daily and grabs a good deal of the pages, but it isn't updating our changed pages in the results.

I have been wondering if they were going to have a dance like day where its not so much that they go out and reindex all of the pages on that day but that they just flip a switch and all of the fresh data that they have been crawling then shows up in the serps. Maybe?

Maybe some ingenious soul will come up with a Yahoo Dance tool to notify us of these "frequent" updates.

I think that it will become clear over the next few months anyway.

It's perhaps a bit too soon to tell, and Yahoo! maybe testing stuff so they're not able to implement the regularity they're intending to.

There must have been some updates already. My site has changed position in the new Yahoo SERPs already at least twice [moving up each time!... :)]

I think their infrastructure is set up so udpdates happen continuously. I think the day of the "dances" are over...definitely for Google, and Yahoo won't be having their own.

From now on I think updates will be continuous and SEO a continually moving target.

Is your site in the Site Match program? I haven't seen any change at all in the Yahoo SERPs on several terms. But then I haven't paid Yahoo yet.
