For one of my sites, Yahoo seemed to pick up a PHP session ID in the URL even though my site doesn't pass session IDs in the URL. My programmers are stumped. The consequence of this was dropping from #2 in an important keyword to #47, and Yahoo not recognizing that it is the same URL for which I have paid for a Yahoo directory listing (which seems to bump me up in ranking over normal Inktomi results as found on hotbot).
Is anyone else having a similar experience with Yahoo's bot?
