I feel like its "Match Point" and something needs to be done to win the result. Maybe a little more optimizing and serve them an "Ace" but risk a "Penalty Point" for unsporting behaviour.
Or is this a normal patttern in Yahoo index for a relatively new domain, and best to give it some more time to settle?
Here are the characteristics:
It's a .php site though the homepage is done in static html (with a php extension). It is well optimized in a similar format (no duplicate content though) to other high ranking sites I have. It has a lot of directory listings and one link from a PR8 site in Google. We implemented a 301 redirect about 40 days ago from the URL without the "www" to the URL with the "www".
Has anyone solved this issue so far? Will it stabilize with time?
Now my site "Ping Pongs" (yes, tennis is ok too) in and out of the web search results very few hours.
In #3 position, then gone, then back, then gone...FAULT!
What's up with these PhD goofs at Yahoo?
One site had 1,200 pages indexed in Y! but never received more than 20-30 uniques/day. Then over the last week after doing a complete css overhaul, the traffic grew 30% or so per day. The thing is that during this growth and even now you can search every couple minutes and get old (us way down) or new (us way up) results. It's definitely ping-ponging right now, but for the most part it just seems like a shift between two specific data sets.
However, I've seen it calm down after a while ... again for no reason.
