Hey guys....

So we have read about the free traffic, but we havent seen any... alright we have seen some... but 20 hits a day?

We rank fairly high on 1 kw.... we have hundreds of backlinks and nothing.

What is going on with Yahoo?

Has traffic dropped sinificantly? and if so.... what is Y! selling?

Yahoo traffic has become a bit variable lately.

It was running at about 20-30% across almost all our sites and now we are seeing some running at 5-10% and others running at 50-60%.

The level seems to be fairly high and consistent on those which have good placement in the new Yahoo!

Here are the statistics on one of our sites for the first week of March.
We are well placed in all search engines and use AdWords, Over & FindWhat. I do not know if these statistics include the PPC searches.

Total site visits - 7054

Google - 1647 - 67.52% of search engine visits
Yahoo - 351 - 14.39%
MSN - 321 - 13.16%
Ask Jeeves - 56 - 2.29%
AV - 56 - 2.29%
Lycos - 5 - .04%
ATW - 1 - .04%
Direct Hit - 1 - .04%

We have been in the Yahoo directory since 1999 and still have good placement in addition to our Over paid listings.

What really is surprising is ATW where we are in the top for most of our searches and still terrible numbers. As we have a world wide audience and get a lot of business from Scandinavia my only conclusion is that nobody is using their search engine.

Rankings haven't seemed to budge, but Yahoo is finally edging out MSN on my power site.

Poor ATW, one lousy hit this month. :(

Averaging around 20%+ (including Yahoo UK). Same as previously when taken as an average. Some sites up to 30% when killer terms rank - others around 10%.
