My company recently launched a site. We drove quality links to our index page and in a few weeks only our index page was crawled by yahoo. Once the crawl happened we gained Top position for our keyword we were targeting on our index page. A few days later we moved to page 45. The only thing we did to our site was slowly add more content.

Does yahoo work like Google used to and show Freshbot results? Is this normal? Did I do anything wrong?

Also it's been about 2 months now and Yahoo has only listed our index page and not listed any of our subpages? Is this normal with Yahoo?

Please help!

Thank you in advance

Yes, new sites when they're first getting into the SERP's can go from nowhere to top 10, back and forth for a few weeks, until they stabilize.

Today I just saw that my site went from #5 to 21. The SERPs were taken by blog spammers and lots of redirects. Very poor results today.
I am starting to think that I should join them. If you can't beat them , join them.

Interesting you should say that - because i've seen some changes today and too see lot's of sites jump who've been busy blog spamming.

In the past when i've seen these they have been short lived and drop back - we'll have to wait and see this time.

But certainly a step backwards Yahoo in the areas i montior

Ive seen some great improvements today in the Yahoo SERPS some of the sites using doorway spam pages are falling out the index whilst some quality sites are starting to feature.

Very interesting

Am with RichTC here. Other obvious examples apart, one of my sites that has employed no means of blog spamming or any other shady tactics is now ranked at #1 for few of the very competitive terms.

Here is some data on a high competitive keyword I monitor for the first 20 SERP:
17 blog/forum spammers from witch 7 automatic generated pages with redirects and 10 subdomains.

Only 2 sites have real content (manufacturer site) and one is gray.
This gotta be the worst I've ever seen on Yahoo.

I've noticed the same thing. Most of the results that show up are from garbage sites with no real valuable content. Hopefuly this won't stick to long.
