    Yahoo Optimization Techniques
    On-Site SEO: This is a key focus for Yahoo, its algorithm tends to focus on bold words and more meta related data, like titles, headers and descriptions. Yahoo likes long titles, 10-15 words is what is key. It also tend to target more guide related pages, so using keywords like “How to” are helpful.


    Off-Site SEO: Yahoo has a different look on the value of this. They only look at backlinks as a whole number, rank of the source, quality, non of that matters to them. They are looking for the total number and whether or not a link is Dofollow or nofollow, they will ignore nofollow links so there is no balance there.


    Quality of Content: This is the most important aspect according to Yahoo for ranking your site. Yahoo loves content and lots of it, the longer the post the better, this didn’t used to the be the case. The 2009 update showed that longer posts tend to rank better, from my experience an a post that reaches close to 1500 words or higher tends to do very well.


    Keyword Stuffing: Now in Google there is a fairly strict limit of keywords you can have based on the amount of characters displayed on the page, anything that passes that line can be flagged and penalized. Yahoo however, is a language based search engine and targets keywords in a more broad spectrum, so they tolerate far more keywords on any one page. This is perfect for an experienced webmaster who knows how to use keywords effectively.


    Click-Through Rank: This is kind of like Google’s PageRank, it counts click-throughs as votes almost, the more votes the better your rank. Theres a flip side to this as well, if your site has great content and no click-throughs then Yahoo see’s this page or website as worthless and won’t rank it very well. Good use of meta keywords, headers, titles, tags, etc. will fix this problem if you every have it, a well developed website usually won’t.


    Website Age: Age is an important factor for Yahoo, there’s not much you can do about this other than wait or buy an old domain. Never the less its an important factor for ranking well within Yahoo. They see age as a credibility factor, a 2 year old site has much more authority than a 2 month old site, in most cases this should be the case.

    Good to know. Thanks for information.
    I have a comment about Click-Through Rank:
    Seems to be a circle here. No clicks -> no rank -> no good postion on yahoo search -> No clicks

    As I understand it, Yahoo now uses BING as it's backend, so, you might want to consider that Search Engine SEO as well. Just saying... Good luck!

    It is almost similar to optimizing a site for google. Can improve the layout of web pages so that they are organised for the search terms .

    According to me Optimizing for three search engines at the same time is not an easy task. There were times, when the SEO community was inclined to think that the algorithm of Yahoo! was on deliberately just the opposite to the Google algorithm because pages that ranked high in Google did not do so well in Yahoo! and vice versa.
