    If you ask this question as which Search Engine is Easy for SEO I would have answered Yahoo as Yes after Bing and Ask.com.

    But If I want to answer this question whether yahoo is best as SEO I would say no, Google is more reactive and prompt on presenting results to your SEO efforts. I have experienced it myself Yahoo is a bit late in presenting effects of my SEO efforts but Google is more prompt.

    No, I think Google is because its obviously the most popular search engine. You dont hear very many people talking about Ask.com or Bing. Google is what you should go with! ;)

    Maybe, maybe not... I would say it isn't because of Google's popularity..

    Well then what else could it be?.... I guarantee Google has a lot more traffic than any of those other search engines. I never hear anyone really talking about Bing or Yahoo...I mean it's pretty obvious. However, whatever works for a certain individual works for them so I'd just recommend that a person go with whatever search engine they have the best results with.

    I think the object of SEO is to rank well with all search engines, not just one. Focus on things like content, backlinks, and keywords.

    Unfortunately, Yahoo is not considered as the best search engine for SEO. Whether we like it or not, Google still dominates Yahoo and other search engines in the seo campaign. However, Yahoo is still useful and/or helpful as a venue for web promotion, link building, etc.

    Yahoo might be the best search engines for several things, but People only care to check Google. Sadly we might even top on Yahoo but that does not really add much value. Google is owning that league.

    No, As per my experience, SEO works mostly on google.

    Google is the best, Yahoo is the second. Do you think Google will be the first in long term ?

    I am not sure about which one first or second. Each one have different algorithm. Google search results are faster than yahoo. So people are more interested in google.

    Google is the best and will be for near future.
    Yahoo search engine isnt the best one. Not many people are using Yahoo as a search engines.

    If your site
    If your site gets more traffic from yahoo, then its 'not un-wise' to focus on yahoo seo bcz even if google is more used worldwide, that doesnt omit the fact that you still get people who use yahoo (which is not negligible).

    What use is google to you even if billions search it whereas millions searching yahoo is still helpful to you. Try enhancing site more from yahoo point and with basic seo (content,link build, etc.), you will attract google as well. Not many sites attract yahoo traffic much.

    Google is better at the moment but I remember when Google was simply Yahoo's crawler and Yahoo was the Big Dog. They actually took a piggy back ride on Yahoo and got bigger than Yahoo. Things change and Yahoo has done a great job sticking around and they are probably the most used after Google. A come back isn't impossible even though it may seem that way.
