    Yahoo Crawling

    How often do you get crawled by Yahoo? Does your whole site get crawled in one swoop?

    Can you think of any reason that Yahoo would stop crawling my home page? I am still indexed and have not done anything outside of their guidlines.
    Thanks

    If it isn't updated very often, then it's a wasted effort to crawl it regularly. It has no implications for your rankings though.

    My experience is the opposite. Yahoo crawls me often and crawls more pages than Google does.

    It all depends on how often the content of the site is updated. You don't need to updat much, just some small part that shows the file was changed.

    Also, make sure you have a valid sitemap that indicates how often the pages are updated. This will give the search engines an idea of how often to look at your site.

    How do you create your sitemap? Do you also have a urllist.txt? Do you submit both to Yahoo as feeds?
    Thanks so much for your help

    crawling rate of any search engine depends upon the quality of a website and its backlinks.
    good sites get crawl very often while site with low page rank get crawl after every week or month.
