Default Yahoo Not Seeing Web Pages

For some reason, Yahoo isn't seeing some newer pages of my site, although these have been on there for over 6 months. Google and Bing see these newer pages and I'm ranking well, but with Yahoo it's as if they don't exist.

Does Yahoo have something like Google's XML sitemap which lets it know all the pages of my site? Will an html sitemap help with this? any other suggestions?

thanks, Logan. Have html sitemaps become obsolete with the advent of xml sitemaps? Is there any point to having an html sitemap with a link to it on all pages of a website?

HTML sitemaps should be for your visitors. Do yours help or benefit your visitors?

I still not undertand what are maps doing... I have read lot of times about them but couldn't understand where is that helping.
Why should a site map help Yahoo results? As I know a site map does not contain all information of a site but only pages like Help, FAQ, Support, TOS e.t.c.

I think you should add manually your new pages.

Send a message via MSN to AirForce1

In my own experiences, signing an account with Yahoo webmaster and submit your well-formed sitemap would be really helpful for this issue.

Have a nice day,

Who care about Yahoo j/k

It's hard to pinpoint the problem without knowing your site. However, I really wouldn't spend too much time worrying about it. Yahoo's search results will soon be powered by Bing.

You can use html sitemap for index new pages of your sites. Besides it, placing Yahoo search coding in header section of page will also help to fastest indexing.
