If you already have a business name, you might want to fill out another "Doing Business As" form with your local courthouse and create another assumed name for your business.

5. Create a Very Brief Description

Try and keep your description text to 12 words or less of advertising and hype free text. However, be sure to include your important keyword (Step 1) intorepparttar description.

6. Choose a Specific Category and Secondary Category

Yahoo distinguishes sites as either commercial or non- commercial sites. If your site is selling anything at all than your site belongs inrepparttar 128064 Business and Economy section of Yahoo.

Try and be as specific as possible when trying to submit your site into Yahoo's first and secondary categories. This will help target your visitors and limitrepparttar 128065 amount of competition your site will have.

7. Implement a Back Up Strategy

Even though you did everything right, you still may not be included into Yahoo's directory. Don't worry, follow this back up strategy:

If you usedrepparttar 128066 Business Express service to submit your site and didn't get in with your first try, you'll be sent an email within 7 days stating why you weren't listed. Here's you second chance to get in. Simply fixrepparttar 128067 problem that they've indicated and then recontact your reviewer to inform them ofrepparttar 128068 changes you've made in what's know asrepparttar 128069 "appeal" email by Yahoo.

If you did not userepparttar 128070 Business Express service, you may want to contact Yahoo about your submission. When contacting Yahoo, I suggest you includerepparttar 128071 date of your submission as well asrepparttar 128072 title and URL of your web site.

Yahoo is swamped with emails, so sending them an email to them may be ineffective. What I suggest is that you either call or write to them about your site's listing (writing isrepparttar 128073 preferred method). Here's Yahoo's contact information:

Yahoo!, Inc. 3420 Central Expressway, 2nd Floor Santa Clara, CA 95051 Main Corporate Telephone: (408) 731-3300 Fax: (408) 731-3301 User Support Telephone: (408) 731-3333 - LISTING NUMBER Extension #1: For information on submitting a new URL Extension #2: For information on making changes to an existing listing in Yahoo! Extension #3: Information about Yahoo! search results

When contacting Yahoo, it's a good idea to get torepparttar 128074 point quickly. Simply ask if they have had a chance to review your web site and reiterate how your site adds value by providing unique content to their directory.

So now you haverepparttar 128075 information needed to get your site listed inrepparttar 128076 biggest directory onrepparttar 128077 net. WHY STOP HERE? Why not userepparttar 128078 information presented above to get more sites listed?

invisible to Search Engines. * Some robots "rapid fire" requests causing severe, server loading problems which can detract from your visitors browsing experience and ultimately cause loss of business. The answer to this problem lies in having a Robot exclusion file on your web server. Robot exclusion files, normally inrepparttar form of "robots.txt" are ASCII text files which reside inrepparttar 128063 document root directory of web servers and are used to set access permissions and controlrepparttar 128064 actions of robots or spiders. Most ofrepparttar 128065 major US and international Search Engines deploy spiders which look for a robots.txt file during their visit to a web site. There is an agreed industry standard for robots.txt files and, in order to work as anticipated, robots.txt has to be correctly formatted and placed inrepparttar 128066 proper location onrepparttar 128067 web server. Once uploaded to your server robots.txt is utilized to notify individual spiders about which elements of a web site cannot be visited and should not be made available onrepparttar 128068 public Internet. Used in conjunction with Search Engine optimization tools and/or services robots.txt can significantly enhance your sites chances of that all-important first page listing onrepparttar 128069 major US and international Search Engines by focusing individual spiders on specific content.

Although only a small ASCII text file, robots.txt enables a significant degree of fine tuning to be applied to your Search Engine optimization program. Used intelligently robots.txt can do a big job, significantly improving your knowledge about, and control of, visiting Search Engine robots. This is particularlyrepparttar 128070 case where a web site owner either wishes to deliver specific content optimized for a particular Search Engine, or has paid for an accelerated Search Engine listing service where if would be useful to trackrepparttar 128071 activity ofrepparttar 128072 robot associated with that specific paid-for service.

Just as Robot Number 5 gathered more and more input and transformed this data into useful information, so web site owners can userepparttar 128073 data generated byrepparttar 128074 interaction between robots.txt, visiting spiders and their web logs to gain significant competitive advantage.
