Very few Webmasters are optimising their sites with something other than
Google in mind. Perhaps this helps Yahoo avoid synthetic results, whereby
people can sneak themselves into good positions 'up the ladder'.
Yahoo are not doing too badly at all, by the way:
I don't know if this can be attributed to ignorance (many can't tell
search facilities apart), Google disdain, or built-in toolbars and exist-
ing pages that have proximity to the contextual search textbox.
Unfortunately, to many, being ranked well in Yahoo is much like having a
10-bedroom apartment in Peru. There is a reputation barrier, still.
