When you search on Yahoo!, our search engine instantly searches and sorts billions of webdocuments. Yahoo! Search then makes a decision on each document’s comparative relevancy to yoursearch query, and offers these web pages as ranked search results. Search engines do not have the ability to ask questions, so they rely on the search terms you enter to interpret and determine the intent of your search.

Yahoo! Search ranks results according to their relevance to a particular query by analyzing the webpage text, title, and description as well as its source, associated links, and other unique document characteristics.

Please understand that web result rankings are by no means static, and are always subject to change
