    There could be many reason such as; Your content might be not convincing and you may be not reaching your prospects with specific keywords that need to be optimized.

    Google is used by more people than Yahoo which may lead to more people searching for your targeted keywords using Google etc etc

    As csswiz has already pointed out, Google is more used by people hence generally sends more traffic to most of the website through their search listings. Besides, it doesn't matter how many pages you have indexed in a particular search engine's index what matters is what SERP rankings your pages have.

    Plus the number of pages is irrelevant. You can have 100,000's of pages indexed but unless they are relevant for terms people are searching for you won't get much traffic from them.

    Couldn't have said it better.

    It's just plain logic.

    I think the keyword terms listed for make the most difference. Yes google is searched more but if you get right keywords listed for sites yahoo does give you some traffic.

    Re:

    Can i know how much traffic you are getting through these indexed pages?
    Obviously, there are more searches in Google as compare to Yahoo. You must try Google base and submit your products to Froogle. It would give a lot of traffic.

    From the Search Engine Optimization FAQ:

    What are SERPs?

    SERPs is an acronym for Search Engine Results Pages. Basically they are the search results you receive when doing a search at a search engine.

    I once seen the demographics of the "typical" Yahoo user compared to the "typical" Google user. I'll see if I can find it and post it... If memory serves me correct though, the typical Yahoo user is a 30ish female.
