    Why don't I get any hits from Yahoo, but I get a lot from Google?

    Is there a special combination that will help me to optimize my content for both search engines?

    I tried registering one of my websites with yahoo and they asked for a $600 payment to be on their search engine for a year. It's free on google.

    I am not sure where I've seen the statistics, but the overwhelming majority of people use Google. Then goes Yahoo, then Bing, then all the other search engines. Don't remember the numbers exactly, but the difference is huge - something around 90% come from Google. All search engines have different formulas to how they rank sites, and there is nothing you can do for Yahoo separately. You do not need to pay 600 to be found on yahoo (commenting on the previous answer), - it costs $299 per year to get a good LINK from Yahoo, and this link will be counted by Google too, but you do not need this link to be FOUND on Yahoo. You need to submit your sitemap, if you are not found on Yahoo at all (that is, if you have a website). For Hubpages content you don't need to do anything.

    Thank you for all of your help everyone!  I didn't realize that nobody is using Yahoo these days.

    I heard on the news this week that Google has most of the traffic, Bing has just passed Yahoo as second, and Yahoo is now a close third. Bing and Yahoo each take about !5% of traffic, and Google gets the lions share.

    I had this same question and I asked in a few forums. The best answer I got is that Yahoo doesn't give much weight to new domains. Now that we all have our own subdomains, it will take some time to get recognized by Yahoo. And Yahoo doesn't crawl as frequently as Google does. So, it is better to submit your site/hub to Yahoo by yourself. The same goes to Bing as well. This is as much as I know. I am sure some expert can provide more info about this.
