    In reviewing my log files, I found an oddity... a search phrase bringing me more traffic from Yahoo/Google than from Google (with Yahgoogle's display of Overture results, I expect more traffic from Google). When I started researching, I discovered that I ranked 8th on Google, but #1 on Yahoo/Google.

    Anyone know why?

    Nope, I gave Overture the kiss-of-death a while back -- I have NO listings with them.

    Oh, and I meant to mention, my log analysis software identifies the hits as coming from Yahoo/Google.

    I've heard this before.

    From what I understand yahoo gets it's own unique feed from google and processes it with their own ranking system.

    Yahoogle isn't part of google it's just a feed.
