Yahoo Guidelines for submission and optimization

Postby priamvathaa » Mon Jun 09, 2008 4:51 am

• To get listed in the yahoo, first step is to find the suitable category page that best suits your website.
• Keep searching until you find the right category.
• Submitting in the most specific category increases your website chances of getting listed easily and earlier.
• Keep your Meta tags descriptions short. Do not use heavy promotional language or brand name in your descriptions.
• Make sure your site is entirely complete before you submit. If your site is not up to 100% or running it can be blacklisted.
• Do not submit site having an under construction page. Yahoo gives preference to a site having clean basic design and good content.
Yahoo discards off the title that looks like promotional ad copy.
• This seems to be odd especially in a business that seems to be all about promoting yourself. So ignore the phrases like Best and unrivaled service in the title. Some times overdose of SEO in your copy can hurt you.
• Follow the yahoo instructions or else if you do not follow their rules and guidelines they will ban you.
Do not try to put in the submission form any type of misinformation that is wrong or on par with fraud for them. Other point is that yahoo requires the site to list the physical address of the business.
• They do not accept post office box type of address. This keeps the scam doers out of their search engines.
Yahoo prefers original and unique value content with a genuine value for the reader. Pages designed primarily for human being are ranked higher.
• Use hyperlinks to assist people finding interesting and related content. Use Meta tags in description that accurately describes the contents of your web page.
Avoid these tasks in the procedure of yahoo optimization for a website. Do not stuff your pages with duplicate or repeated content.
• Yahoo can penalize you for spamming. Don’t use doorway pages. Do not use any method to partially inflate search engine ranking.
• Don’t participate in link exchange with link farms. Don’t stuff your pages excessively or off topic keywords.
• Do not use text with same coder as the background color or text that is not easily read, too small or is placed in an area of the web page not visible to users.
• And the final instruction is do not use any cloaking techniques.
Yahoo is among the major search engines that exist in the World Wide Web and considered one of the most favorite by internet users.
• Submission and opmization in yahoo increases the chances of increase in traffic generate more queries and leads.
• Therefore Yahoo search engine submission and optimization service is on the priority list for all SEO companies.
• Client major need also includes the yahoo search engine submission and optimization service on the priority basis.

Edit: No, I'm not saying we should use cloaking

Where to submit? On Yahoo directory or other directories around?

I feel many sites being optimized for Google with those procedures and yet still not performing well on Yahoo.
