The clear negative thing is the number pages indexed from a site seems to have dropped a lot in every case I track. Yahoo doesn't need a new front page. It needs a new bot. Six months now and Slurp still is non-competitive.
The #3 site is a new domain, one-page-site registered on Sept 7, 2004. It has 1,940 backlinks already showing in Yahoo, all backlinks (that I could stand to look at) are off-topic blog spam. The #6 site for this competitive keyword is essentially the same. The #1 site is a redirect.
Keep up the good work, Yahoo!
and I had seen update at that time, I could tell by the "last modified" dates I put on the pages. So if they've updated again this soon then maybe it's once a week.

Me too, it's nice to be loved. ;)
I'm trying to figure out if I need to go old school in optimizing for these sites. I'm seeing quite a bit of spam.
Yep - plain old-fashioned on-page optimization 101 is good to go. Links from quality sites are always important, always have been and always will be, but even massive link pop can be competed with very effectively, with just an overall efficiently optimized site and a modest number of links.
