    Submitted few months ago, but all the url’s are not indexed. Trying to figure out what the problem is. Let me know if you have a solution!

    Hi Harsh, Do you know whether submitting a blog to Yahoo directory will make any difference to blog traffic. But it is 299$ per yr and not sure whether it is worth?



    I make it a point to submit every blog that I create for clients to Google Yahoo and Bing using the same method you suggested.Although major portion of the search engine traffic is from Google, one can’t ignore Yahoo search.

    Yahoo site explorer has been shut down already. You should update this article now.
