Different search engine rankings

I noticed that Mark's site wowblackbook.com (for the search term: "Wow strategy guide") is currently ranked 4th on Google and MSN, but 36th (3 pages deep) on Yahoo. If Mark see's this post maybe he could give some insight as to why his Yahoo ranking is so low in comparison to other SEs. What is so different about Yahoo's ranking criteria?

Hi WM,
Each search engine has there own algorithms and it will be different for each page on your site.
It all depends on how you optimize the pages.
But if I wanted to optimize my site for any search engine, it would be Google.
