Yahoo is the only SE that have humans look at your site and decide if it is worthy. When you typed "multimedia developers", did you notice Yahoo only high lighted the word "multimedia developers". Yahoo looks for the words you type in the Title (which is high lighted in blue) and the description. So if you typed "bicycle crash", Yahoo would pull up everything that had these two words in it. Then it would it would pull up listings for each word separatley.

The word "3Dcompany" was probably not highlighted.

Remember Yahoo wants content, useful info for their viewers. Not just an advertisement.
