You indeed are affected by Google's aging delay. Run a forum search, there's plenty of info about it around here. Not much you can do about it, but in the mean time:
Get as many good, quality, relevant links pointing in as you can. Obtaining good links is hard work, and rightfully so. In contrast to crappy links, they are a strong indication of the strength of your information and quality. So one good way to use the time you're under the influence of the aging delay is to continue to develop the quality of your site. Find a new angle on a topic relevant to your niche. Look for info that hasn't been presented before, or find a way to present this information better, fresher, differently than your competitors.
Work with the data you have from Y! and Live. Make sure your site is crawlable and is getting indexed. Look at user behavior with analytics and let that data help you in determining if your site is navigable and usable. And most important whether people are sticking around to hear what you have to say.
Ideally, the higher the quality, ease of use, and content of your site, the more likely it is to attract quality, relevant links. Focus on these types of issues, and in six months or so when you pop out of the delay, you'll be better positioned to attract relevant traffic.
And stick around HR. This is a great place to ask questions, search the forums, listen and learn. Good Luck!
