I think you must concentrate on every factor of SEO ....Do the best of all things such as on page optimization, get quality backlinks , unique content and much more ..... i think you must not wait for doing only one thing and must go for all .....because all that is a part of seo and cant get results on one.

Whats the problem in doing total Seo ? Dont just don't concentrate on ranking in Yahoo only.

Yeah a Yahoo directory listing can really help, I think they have started putting more weight on anchor text links then they used to as well like Google and MSN.

A. Put your keywords in an H2 element and the title and have some text on the page
B. Build all the links you can for your exact keywords in the anchor
C. Now wait about 3 months you will be in the top 4

I'm not sure about Yahoo but h tags for google is a big yes, your title should be in H1 and and the main keywords in H2s and think about adding H3 keywords to, so if the page was about widgets make your title "Widgets" make the H2 something like "Widgets In Blue" and a H3 tag like, "widgets are great" so this would tell google spiders this page is about widgets and not a lot else...

I would say for Yahoo - The Onpage optimization counts more.

While in google other factors have more weight.

I don't understand really why with certain websites i rank better on Google and in some others i rank good on Yahoo if i keep the same strategy with all of them. The link building strategy, anchor text, meta tags, titles, headers, etc. are the same ones for all the websites i optimize, so i really don't understand why it happens or if Google and Yahoo are playing with us!
Can someone explain this?

I think the rule of yahoo is similar with rule of google
You can do the same thing as SEO for google.
And list in the yahoo and directory and others is helpful.

Yahoo is really far less predictable than google. It's not even as compatible to wordpress as google is. Amazingly for keywords where I only rank high in blogs at Google, I rank higher in my real website for Yahoo. And I don't even try to figure out how Yahoo crawls my webpages. That's the mystery of this search engine.

Yahoo prefer on page factors while ranking a website in comparison to backlinks so keep on focus on page factors like keywords,meta tags, alt tags, content, page layout, loading time etc to get higher ranking on yahoo as well as Msn too

Well, the main reason behind the all is different ranking alogrithms of search engines. Google prefer off-page factors while ranking a website in comparison to on-page factors. In case of yahoo and msn, they prefer on page factors while ranking a website in comparison to off page factors.

So you must focus properly on on-page as well as off page factors to get higher ranking on all major search engines...

I think "On page optimization" and "Back links" may give you better result in Yahoo. Do more submissions in Yahoo directories.

The best factor for yahoo is the keyword title , density and content. Submit your site to Yahoo directory and use yahoo services such as yahoo blog, groups, yahoo answer, and yahoo ad center.

sorry, just refering back to the H1, H2, H3, that completly fuks up the size of the text.

Can you put a class element in it, or can you put a <p class = > element inside the h1 tags?

Well, you have to work on all factors but little more focus on op-nage factors to get higher ranking on yahoo as on-page factors have more weightage on yahoo unlike google.

Yahoo started to crawl my site like crazy 6 months after it went live. That was a year and a half ago. Now my site ranks 1 literally for any and every word in my industry. What did I do?

- Updated content several times a month over a year straight
- Use h1 <b> <i> <u> meta tags, alt tags, 4% keyword consistency
- Have my keywords listed at the end of the page
- Have between 200-500 words of content on each page
- No redirects
- No popups
- Quick load time

Besides ranking well in yahoo, I am top 1-6 for my same competitive keywords on google. I have been working my a$$ off at improving my rankings on google and didn't have to do any work really for the yahoo. All the above is SIMPLE!

But a majority of my traffic comes from google....

Search engines have different ranking algorithms. To rank well in Yahoo, you must focus more on doing an on-page optimization on your site because Yahoo gives more weigh on these on-page factors. Better work well in selecting keywords in your title, description, content and anchor text.

I've read somewhere that submitting to yahoo directory can help you rank. Ive tried it in one of my sites and it works, so maybe Yahoo prefer sites that they already have approved?

It is important to have a good developed website. Yahoo looks at on page factors together with off page factors.
