Difference Google vs Live!(msn?) vs Yahoo!

My website http://www.v-echtscheiding.be has been submitted about 2
years ago all three search engines at the same time. At that time, my
site had about 5 pages or something. In the meantime, it has over 40
pages, which are all about the same topic (divorce), and are all
indexed by Google. Both Live! and Yahoo have less to much less pages
indexed (Live! only 8). This is very much visible in my stats, of the
1692 visitors last month, 1.326 came from google, 4 from MSN, 3 from
Altavista (didn't know that one was still actively used!), 3 from
Live!, and 2 from Yahoo.
What is creating this big difference here? I would like to rank higher
on Live!/MSN Search too, since the website is local to Belgium (it
deals with divorcelaws etcetera), and in Belgium, MSN search is quite
well used.

Thanks in advance!

Yahoo and especially MSN Live Search mostly base their ranking algorythm
on link exchanges with other sites rather than internal pages from your
site. If you want to improve in ranking at msn and yahoo you need to do
a lot of link exchanges with other sites. It doesn't have to be about
the same subject matter but it's alway better if it is. Google on the
other hand prefers internal pages from your own site over link exchanges
with other sites. Google is more into giant sites where as msn and yahoo
more small to medium sites.
