    I got a little surprize mail from them today.
    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>The URL you suggested

    site name was here :rolleyes:

    has been added to Yahoo!. It will appear after our next update, probably
    within the next 2-4 days. You can find your site at that time by looking
    through the "What's New" listings (http://www.yahoo.com/new/)
    or by searching on its title or URL.

    Well Done Fish [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
    How long did it take them to inform you, from your suggestion to acceptance?

    I think it was about 7 days (+/- 1 or 2). I know it wasn't any longer than that [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    [edit]

    I suggested the site to them on 31st January, so my guess above was almost right [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Congratulations - Fish. Was that a paid or free submission.

    I get about 3-4 sites in yahoo a month. At $299 a pop, I pray with each submission. LOL!!! :eek:

    Jada, that was a free submission. I'm not crazy enough to pay $299 to submit a tripod site which makes very little in commissions [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I've been trying to get it added since August or September using the real (long) URL, but nothing. I try once with the nice short redirect URL and voila, it's in...

    Fish, that is so cool!!!

    Boohoo, Yahoo hates me-lol. I have tried to get in even when I did not have any affiliate links and still no luck, so I just gave up trying. You give me hope!!

    If at first you don't succeed, and second an third time, backdoor it through yahoo in another country.

    Vicki, I'm sure they don't hate you. Just keep trying, and one day you'll get a surprize [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    mousejockey, that is so true, and not just for yahoo (hmmmmm, that rhymes [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] ). You have to go after all the country specific variations on SE's, that way you have a chance that one of them will add your site [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Well heck a free submission, that's the cool. No, I wouldn't submit a site that doesn't make much via a paid submission either. That wouldn't be very wise. I need to research yahoos directory to see where I can sneak a free site in their.

    Probably a dumb question, but any ideas what are the chances of Yahoo accepting through paid submission an affiliate site that is more or less like an online shopping mall (the type with links all over the place and little own content - but not quite a pure-banner page)?

    I can't find anything on the Yahoo site about this, and I do see quite a few such sites already in their index, although these could have got in a few years ago.


    Thanks,
    TianTian

    I don't know the situation now Tian, but I couldn't get a shopping mall in earlier last year, so I backdoored it via yahoo asia, now it's listed everywhere, with the added benefit of all the extra traffic.

    Don't know if they've closed the hole on this, but it's worth trying [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Thank you mousejockey, that's the encouragement I need. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Need to tweak things a bit first though, before taking the plunge.

    BTW, has such a Yahoo listing really help in bringing your site traffic?

    I recall reading not too long ago MSN Search is now the No.1 Search Engine in terms of the number of searches done per day or something like that. Mind you, I think I also read some similar claims from Yahoo too. Guess they are not the best of chums.


    Cheers,
    TianTian

    I really does help Tian, you get traffic from them, once you get picked up, you should also get picked up by web shopping directories and they will bring you a nice steady traffic stream.

    Thanks again mj.

    I think I'm gonna try my smallest site first, that way if I fail to get in, I'll probably feel less sad. :rolleyes:

    Cheers,

    That's cool fish. I guess a free yahoo submission isn't as rare as I thought it would be.

    I don't have real log files as it's a tripod site [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img] but I had a look through the information the tracker gives me and nothing like that showed up.
