Tip 2 Color Choice IS Important
With all tips I've run across regarding Yahoo! submissions, I've never seen any touch on elements of color. If you want to know what richest Entrepreneurs on web think about color and text, here's what they suggest, and I agree.
Black on white text is best way to present your content. Lose colorful or worse, printed backgrounds under your text. Color should be used to accent your website in side bars and so forth.
Never use more than 3 color combinations, this doesn't include black or white. Two colors are better. Make sure these colors complement one another and linked text does not reach out and pluck your eye balls out of their sockets. If you're a bit color blind, have a friend help you out.
The truth is, a more professional looking web site will increase your opportunity to be listed.
Tip 3 Avoid The Newbie Look
One of most amateurish things you can do is center everything or place large areas of bold text content on your website. This includes using a large font that appears to be bold text.
Center headlines and sub headings. Center small sentences of text for grabbing attention. Left justify rest of your content.
Only use larger fonts for headlines and sub headings. Do not use a font that is so large it takes up a third of your page. Use bold for highlighting important key thoughts (phrases, not entire paragraphs)and keywords. Use bold for headlines and sub headings.
I leave you with these concluding thoughts.
Follow instructions that Yahoo.com has provided. You'll find them located here: http://docs.yahoo.com/info/suggest
Create a unique and valuable web site with a professional overtone. Animated banners and buttons are distracting. Avoid too many on any one page, or avoid them altogether. Check your site for grammar and spelling errors. Have a friend look it over for errors as well.
