    Does Y! stop crawling when updating

    About 3 days ago Yahoo bots stopped crawling my site. Early yesterday my site climbed from 4th place for our main keyword to 3rd place. Today it climbed to 1st place. It obviously made me very happy but it also prompted me to think of the last time I climbed from 5th to 4th was when Yahoo stopped crawling my site for a few days!

    Is it that Y! stops crawling when updating? I wonder why?

    I can't say it stops crawling the web when they do an update, but its known that Yahoo! "dance/update" is happening off-line and after that they publish the new results on the main yahoo.com
