Weird Yahoo results

We all know that normally Yahoo looks for keywords in the title, description and category (with title being the most important), but I've started to see some weird results lately. Take a look at this search for vinyl windows
http://search.yahoo.com/bin/search?p=vinyl+windows
The #10 listings, Plastiques Industriels RPG Ltee, has no keywords anywhere and is beating a 271 sites that actually have keywords in these places. Could Yahoo be starting to index the actual pages instead of just title, description and category?

I think they are massaging the data with some 'other' factor. I don't believe they are spidering themselves. I think they are giving a slight boost to sites who've laid out the expre$$ service cash and the other part is just changing the search algo.

btw: whats the best thing to clean vinyl windows with? (I put in a new screen porch last fall with vinyl windows... What a waste of cash that was, but a good tax/mortage writeoff...
