    I have a site that gets most of it's traffic from Google. My site has over 400 pages but I only get traffic to my homepage when my visitors are coming from Yahoo. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance.....

    Maybe they only have one page in the Yahoo index? Maybe you haven't done any keyword research? Is your site new? It's pretty hard to answer your question... Maybe 399 pages of your site are duplicate?

    Or maybe your content sucks. Or maybe you have only non-indexable images.

    There might be possible your site is not get indexed by the search engine. You should have to check is there any nofollow tag in your page which stops crawler to crawl your site. You can do seo for your site which will helo you to rank well in search engine like Google, Yahoo, Bing etc.

    What is driving visitors from your homepage to other pages on your site? What do you have that induces people to want to visit other pages?

    Maybe adding some links to other pages within your homepage content would help?

    I think Yahoo and Bing's crawling/indexing process is not as fast and efficient as Google's

    Google can index my new pages within a matter of hours... while many of my pages more than 6 months old are still nowhere to be found on Bing/Yahoo

    If it is down to the search engine's crawling process then it is out of your control

    This looks lil confusing to me most of the visitors from Google thn visitors are coming from yahoo?You get most of your traffic to home page only because home page is the most powerful page and gets tons of back links, unique Meta tags, backlinks for internal pages will help them to rank well in search engines and you would get some visitors for your internal pages as well.

    Yahoo do not give much result. Just work in Google, Yahoo will automatically rank it.

    You getting traffic to only your home page? That means only home page is indexed in Yahoo! and others or not. And don't worry.. just submit your website to Bing webmaster tools and it will be automatically reflected to Yahoo too. for more details, please refer to: http://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/index.php
