getting listed on Yahoo in 24 hours

    I hear that if you put an RSS feed on your page that Yahoo bots will come over and spider your site within 24 hours time. Has anyone verified this?

    I did... I used it for one site and not for another site.

    result? :D
    As per today, the site using My Yahoo RSS is spidered and cached by Yahoo, the other one is still totally ignored even if yahoo sees over 25,000 BL.

    So, for us it works.

    I doubt that very much. It would be impossible for Yahoo to know everytime someone put an RSS feed on their site.

    In may in fact help the regularity that the Yahoo spiders your site, only for the fact that the SEs like fresh content.

    If you manually updated your site every day you would get the same affect as putting an RSS feed on it.

    You can create an RSS feed and submit it to Yahoo.
    I also did it for my blog and it was spidered v.quickly. I can't promise within 24 hours but it was QUICK!

    Creating a Yahoo RSS feed and adding it to your MyYahoo profile works great!

    You get a site spidered faster and new pages indexed more quickly.

    Works for me as well.
    After you put the rss feed, add that to your yahoo account.
    For me it was not indexed in 24 hours but it was about 2-3 days. Some consider this a myth but i can tell you that many ppl who tried this say it works.

    At first it's just a few pages but then once slurp came .. it just comes everyday. In about 2 weeks almost all my pages are indexed ( about 150+ pages)

    I've been talking about it a few months ago and it did work for me pretty good - can't confirm 24 hours though. I had over 20K pages indexed by Yahoo and only 17K by Google, even though Yahoo was never that generous on indexing and it only happened when I used RSS. After the latest Yahoo screwup I've lost 65% of the indexed pages, but slowly its going back up (no drops in ranking though).

    Some of my new sites (atleast 4-5 months old) have only their homepages indexed in Yahoo and not even a single other page :mad: . I am going to try this soon! and will let you know whether this works or not :)

    1. Login into my.yahoo.com
    2. Click Add Content button anywhere you see it
    3. In the new window by the Find button click Add RSS by URL link.

    That's it.

    I love Maria Sharapova! Too bad she failed to defend her Wimbledon title.

    Yes guys, true.... getting in yahoo in 24 hours is just to give RSS feed in my.yahoo.com and there you go. I experienced the samething with my maria sharapova blog. Wow, I added the RSS feed the other night, and the next day, I found my blog on yahoo search on first page. It was never never so quick for any of my blogs. Just awesome... I started getting visitors for terms like "maria sharapova wallpapers" and "maria sharapova pictures"... kudos!!
