Ranking better on Yahoo

Hi all. I've always been curious about something. In all my years of designing and marketing sites, I've noticed that while my sites usually do very well on Google and Bing/MSN, they always receive much lower rankings on Yahoo. So I usually rank 1-5 for "example item" on G & B, but rank 45 on Y. It's always like this! Because my sites have received a high amount of traffic, I never really minded it much. But when it comes to maximizing the effort and squeezing out as much traffic as possible, that additional Yahoo traffic would certainly be nice. So the question is: Are there things that Yahoo especially likes when it comes to SEO? Things that should be done specifically for better Y rankings?

I came across this old post in the unanswered list. We have the same issue with one of our customers. There are some keywords like
web development,
iphone development,
android development,
mobile development etc. you know the drill - that rank very well in google but unfortunately very very bad in bing and yahoo. I am having a hard time figuring out what makes bing & yahoo work. The site is [acapglobal.com ] if anyone has any inside, I would love to hear.

Thanks in advance!

From my own experience, Yahoo seems to give more weight towards on page optimization than off page backlinks (which Google gives a lot of weight to).
