There are contradictions to this:



"Of the 20 billion elements in Yahoo's database, 19 billion are documents,
1.5 billion images and more than 50 million audio and video files, the
company said.

Until now, Yahoo didn't normally talk publicly about the size of its search
index, but according to the Associated Press, company observers had pegged
the number at no higher than 8 billion documents."



Yahoo picked up some music from my site, which is impressive (for Yahoo),
but they barely have any images as far as I can tell. Yahoo also request
around 60% the amount of traffic that Google and MSNBot do judging by
statistics that I see, so they appear to be somewhat slow.
