    Here are my figures:

    Until 3 months ago my organic visitor percentage was:
    Google 85%
    Yahoo 10%
    All other SE (Ask, altavista, etc) 5%

    As of today:
    Google 70%
    Yahoo 25%
    everybody else 5%

    Yahoo went from 30 to 300 visitors a day.

    What did I do?

    First: I understood that Yahoo is used as portal not as search engine so, it is normal to receive a lot less traffic from it
    Second: I stoped paying them US250 to be listed in their Bsuiness to business directory, it doesn't worth it
    Third: I started answering some questions at Yahoo answers (only the ones that fit my website content, or they will ban my account)
    Fourth: I moved part of my static pages to a content manager (drupal in my case),Search engines love them.
    Fifth: I created a blog and started blogging about my site content in a weekly basis.

    But, more important : Patience, lots and lots of patience, all changes must be done one at a time, and wait for results

    Just my two cents

    I don't get much traffic from Yahoo. I wish I did. If I did get most of my traffic from Yahoo, then I'd be really concerned about MS's bid to purchase them.

    More than 90% comes from Google.

    Google is 45%


    we have higher serps in google than yahoo but yahoo is still bringing people in, depends on your terms I guess

    Yahoo beat my forums like a redheaded stepchild until I was 'big enough' for Yahoo to list. Amusing as hell. After nearly bringing my site down with their busted crawler, a few months later I was getting a lot of traffic from them.
