Yahoo Slip Sliding Away

Another question. Yahoo has no cache of my site, is this significant? I've noticed that there are quite a few sites listed with no cache.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Why would that be?

In the past, I've had a couple of index pages disappear from the G cache. They always reappeared, sometimes the next day other times a week or so. For these sites it happened after changes were made to the page. Have no idea if it were coincidental or not, but the disappearing-reappearing has always befuddled me. My thoughts have always been either the changes or a host temporarily down when the crawler was out and about, but it is just conjecture.

If that's all okay, you might want to take a look in the .htaccess file if the site has one. Or use something like Delorie's header viewer or WebBug to verify nothing funny is going on with the headers at the server level.
It's been ages since I've seen it, and I've never used it myself, but you can actually control caching of an entire site or entire server with a combination of the Apache mod_expires and mod_headers directives. Nobody would do that on purpose likely, however if the host did something like that you'd never know it just by looking at the code on the page.
If it's a temporary thing that just happened, I'd write it off to being a fluke. If it's a continuing issue, as in this case, then there has to be something causing it. The hard part is finding out what the root cause is; once you know that it should be pretty easy to fix!

I know for google not having your site cached might mean that you're still vying for position and they're not quite sure what to do with you yet until you get more links. Is it the same for yahoo? Then if so, you'd think that once a site was cached in google, it would be in yahoo. I think something else is going on with yahoo because one or two of the sites I saw not cached were relatively well known sites. Any thoughts?

The hard part is finding out what the root cause is...
I had a nasty feeling that you might say something like that, Randy!
Anyway, thanks for the advice - I shall have a good look at it at the weekend.

I love a good riddle ! Let's all keep an eye on it and see if we can figure it out, just for fun.

I used the Header Review tool at delorie.com, but I don't know how to interpret some of the results. For example what is:
Is there an explanation of these things somewhere or is it knowledge that comes from many sources over time?
