Continued from page 1
a web sites PageRank. Increasing your PageRank is very difficult, but important. The actual amount of effect that Search engines PageRank has onrepparttar ranking of a website or web pages is debated, but what we do know is that a web page's PR does play a big role in Google's indexing and Google's ranking. The higher a web page's PageRank,repparttar 128296 more frequently it will be crawled and refreshed. While in most cases, a higher PR will accompany a higher-ranking site; it is not alwaysrepparttar 128297 case. PageRank is a pretty complex mathematical calculation, but can be broken down into a simple version. PageRank is Google's scoring of Page 1. This scoring is based onrepparttar 128298 links that point to Page 1, and certain variables withinrepparttar 128299 pages thatrepparttar 128300 links come from. 1 link from Page 2 is held as a vote for Page 1, and if Page 2 has a high PageRank, this will is taken into account and will have a positive effect when calculatingrepparttar 128301 Page Rank of Page 1. If Page 2, 3, and 4, all link to Page 1, but Page 2, 3, and 4 all have a PageRank of 3, then this will be taken into account when calculatingrepparttar 128302 web page's PageRank. Inrepparttar 128303 second situation,repparttar 128304 pages with low PageRank's that link to Page 1 will not affect Page 1's PageRank in a negative effect, but also will not affect it in a positive way.

Continued from page 1

I logged into my site's control panel and checkedrepparttar logs that show my most recent visitors. I sawrepparttar 128295 line "YahooFeedSeeker/1.0", not just at my feed, but atrepparttar 128296 links it was pointing to, almost immediately.

A few hours later, I went to searchrepparttar 128297 directory for feeds similar to mine. A search for "traffic secret" popped my site up - now that is fast inclusion.

I noticedrepparttar 128298 next day that every time I updatedrepparttar 128299 portion of my site that hasrepparttar 128300 feed,repparttar 128301 number of visitors on that page doubled. So it looks like if you're not in a crowded niche, now is a great time to add your feed - there were about 48 results for "internet marketing", but only 7 for "sunglasses".

Once you've submitted, don't forget to stick one ofrepparttar 128302 "Add to My Yahoo!" buttons in a visible spot on your web property. The following link will take you directly torepparttar 128303 instructions at Yahoo: http://my.yahoo.com/s/publishers.html#promote - or if you're as lazy as I am, get Yahoo to dorepparttar 128304 work for you- http://my.yahoo.com/s/button.html .

Want to search Yahoo's RSS Directory for your site or others? Just go to your "My Yahoo!" page, find where you addedrepparttar 128305 RSS Headlines block and click "Edit", usually inrepparttar 128306 upper right hand corner ofrepparttar 128307 block of content.

That will take you to a new page. Now, where you would normally type a URL, type your keyword, or if you know a site has a feed but don't knowrepparttar 128308 address, type inrepparttar 128309 home page.

Advanced users can also click onrepparttar 128310 Import feature to import feeds through their .OPML file. You can display up to 50 feeds per page, but there does not appear to be a limitation on how many feeds you can include in Yahoo.

When does a browse-able version of Yahoo's RSS Directory open, and how much more traffic can you expect when it does? I haven't heard any speculation on whenrepparttar 128311 Beta period will be up, but I'd be willing to be it will be soon.

My suggestion? Add your link now, while Yahoo appears to be taking all comers.

Does this convert me back to my Yahoo-loving days of yore? Not quite yet.

Butrepparttar 128312 ice that formed overrepparttar 128313 Yahoo spot in my heart... slowly... melting...
