How I got into Yahoo within 48 hours for $0!!

    I've managed to get my site's homepage in Yahoo (ranking 8th). It took me an hour to set it up and I was listed in about 24 hours.

    I've documented exactly what to do in my blog.

    Any one can do this!

    Care to share any traffic numbers? From Yahoo, Google and in total? It was interesting to read your blog, thanks.

    I have had sites picked up within 48 hours of doing absolutely nothing:) I think yahoo must get a list of the most recent purchased domains and enter them in or something randomly.

    I too have tried the RSS and it has worked. As far as boost rankings, I would say yes, it can boost rankings as long as you are going for a specific keyword. It is easy to do and can't hurt, so give it a shot.

    Hmm.. the improved rankings would be worth it, but i too have never had a problem being indexed by Y.

    I think ppl tend to get the index mixed up with the directory.. ie the directory is where you're charged the $299, not the standard Y SERPS.. which is where this result is found.

    I'd like to hear the numbers traffic wise.. how much traffic is coming from Y vs traffic from blogrolls, headlines, moreover distro etc.

    While on this subject.. anyone know what the most popular categories are for feeds ? Is there a popularity tool for feeds as there is for keyphrases ? :)

    Must say - the info was very handy, I wonder how well it does for G. In terms of site discovery, it's useful :)

    Cheers,

    JL

    Even though my site is listed in the directory, I went ahead and created a myyahoo page even though I won't use it for anything. I added my feed and it's done. I already have good rankings in Y but what the heck, fifteen minutes of work is not a lot to spend gambling on more traffic.

    Add the RSS beta to your myyahoo page and you can add feeds once it's 'installed'.

    Yup.. I have done it for my new weblog, www.thejosher.com and I will see what happens :) For only being less than a week old, the trafic is good already, but more is always nice :)

    Hmm, maybe this tactic works on small sites, but when you're trying to get Yahoo to index 100,000 pages, this just doesn't work. Yahoo simply doesn't seem able to deepcrawl a site like Google can. I've had my forum RSS feeds up for quite some time now and it hasn't made an ounce of difference in Yahoo.

    Judging from the Blog, it's the search.
