I launched a site a few weeks ago and its number 31 on Yahoo.
However, i can see that Yahoo hasn't visited it for a long time because the first few lines of body content that its displaying on its SERPs has been changed by me.
i am constantly adding new content, have a PR of 5/10 but no visit from yahoo....
I wouldn't worry about Yahoo search listings. They bring the least traffic by far. Concentrate on current powerhouse Google and the up and coming MSN. After that, Ask Jeeves should be on your list. Yahoo should be dead last.
This is a joke, right?
I have sites in at least 30 different niches, and I have top ten rankings in Ask for all of them - and I get more traffic from Yahoo in a week than I've gotten from Jeeves in year.
If you have a niche that has lots of Adwords inventory, you just will not get Jeeves traffic.
I launched a brand new website and had Yahoo crawl the entire website in about 20 minutes after putting it online, and it was indexed in Yahoo about 24-48 hours later.
Just install Wordpress on your site, add the RSS to My Yahoo, create a few simple post with links to various locations on your website, and ping your blog. I guarantee you that you website will be crawled immediately upon you doing this. Time needed = under 10 minutes.

Does anyone know how long it takes yahoo to re-visit a new site?
From past experience... unless you have a directory listing, spidering/adding new pages is quite infrequent.
Sites that I own with directory listings get crawled daily... new pages usually show within 7 days.
