I see many people say focus on google and yahoo will follow but my sites rank on the first page of google but not so much on yahoo.
I think optimizing for yahoo would be the same thing as optimizing for google and bing, actually most people tell me yahoo is easier to optimize for than google and in my experience that is very true. Don't aim for yahoo though, not too many people use it nowadays. Go for google.
Yeah I agree with ChasRE. Just grow Google and Yahoo and Bing will come. Weird that those two Yahoo and Bing like my sites and giving me double listings. Cool!
I also agree, just work for Google and it will not be so different for Yahoo. I actually rank better in Yahoo than Google without doing anything to achieve it.
What I don't quite understand is that although Bing powers Yahoo search, the results are different.
My site actually ranks better on Yahoo and and Bing for many keywords than it does on Google.
Strangely enough, some of my strongest keywords on Google actually rank lower on Yahoo and Bing.
I am not actually certain what the differences are in their algorithms. I just keep pushing out content and looking for a diverse group of new links and let the everything else kind of figure itself out.
Seems to be working well enough at this point.
My traffic from both Bing and Yahoo has been increasing steadily, though its still a very long way behind Google. But while I have been struggling to get over Penguin, my traffic overall from other (than Google) sources has gone up. As a result I am finding myself looking more often at Yahoo and Bing now, but the truth is I don't really know what to do differently for them as my SERPs are already very good.
