sometimes it is a good idea to read manuals!

"metadata_expire" is your friend and after that "yum clean metadata"
if you want to force the search for updates

http://linux.die.net/man/5/yum.conf

keepcache Either '1' or '0'.
Determines whether or not yum keeps the cache of headers and packages after successful installation.

metadata_expire Time (in seconds) after which the metadata will expire.
So that if the current metadata downloaded is less than this many seconds
old then yum will not update the metadata against the repository.
