3) Yahoo! considers keywords inrepparttar 128374 directory structure while ranking.

For example, if someone is searching for "Business Opportunities Directories", a web site listed in category - B2B/Business_Opportunities/Directories will be given more relevance than a web site listed in category - B2B/Business_Opportunities

4) Yahoo! DOES NOT spider websites to determine ranking. It ranks web sites based on keywords in domain name, title and description. So having META tags does not make any difference to your listing.

5) DO NOT try to stuff as much keywords as possible in torepparttar 128375 description. Yahoo! editors are notorious for cutting downrepparttar 128376 description if they sense even slightest hype. Try to avoid words such as - no.1, proven, turnkey, exciting etc.

Also, make sure thatrepparttar 128377 heading of your home page is same asrepparttar 128378 description you provided for your site. There should be no confusion inrepparttar 128379 mind ofrepparttar 128380 editor reviewing your site.

6) Make sure your domain name and business name isrepparttar 128381 same since Yahoo! is known to userepparttar 128382 business name asrepparttar 128383 title for your listing.

7) Make sure your website is "Content Rich". This is very critical for two reasons. One - to get your site accepted by Yahoo! and Second - to maintain and get a higher listing.

Yahoo! determinesrepparttar 128384 popularity of a website byrepparttar 128385 amount of time a visitor spends on your website. If a large no. of them hitrepparttar 128386 "back button" of their browser as soon as they hit your web site, you can kiss goodbye to your dreams of a possible higher listing.

Once you get a lower listing, it can get very difficult to make up as visitors will not be able to find your site easily.

-----SIDEBAR----- Once a site gets accepted intorepparttar 128387 directory, Yahoo! ranks it based onrepparttar 128388 keyword popularity in domain name, title and description. But as time progresses, it determinesrepparttar 128389 ranking based onrepparttar 128390 popularity ofrepparttar 128391 website itself.

We ignored this and our listing came down drastically within few days of getting accepted! -----SIDEBAR-----

8) Before submitting your website, thoroughly research websites that rank higher for keywords you are targeting (Especiallyrepparttar 128392 "Most Popular" sites inrepparttar 128393 directory section). This will give you a rough idea of what to and what not to include in your website.
