Listing with Yahoo

It’s an age old tradition in webmastering and search engine optimization to code your pages especially with Yahoo in mind. They were one of the largest search engine teams that took pride in personally inspecting each submission. But are those personal services of the past, dead in the grave? Yahoo still claims pride in how they submit sites to their engines. Times have changed in SEO, and much of it caused by those annoying spam engines that go posting site after site in the search engines mucking them up so that others cannot actually find anything detailed that they are looking for. This is one of the reasons that Yahoo’s personal attention made them so great. But then came google … and it started putting Yahoo to shame. Then came the age of selling listings, and Yahoo was quick to jump on the bandwagon with outrageous prices that ensure that your listing can be at the top of the page.  So is it still worth registering with the engines for free? I still believe so. Even with Yahoo. You can do so here : http://submit.search.yahoo.com/free/request  but remember, they do take $$ to put listings ahead of you. But I was told ages ago, the best way to ensure a good listing with Yahoo, is to write to them through snail mail, with your listing, so that its hand submitted by their staff. Give it a try, you never know, might still be the best way to go.
