It is not impossible but really quite difficult. You need to spend effort on Yahoo submission, let me sharerepparttar following tips with you:


If your site is a business site, prepare to pay Yahoo US$199 (Business Express Service). It is officially announced that there is no free lunch for business sites anymore.

1. Your official business name should be clearly visible. Yahoo is likely to take it as your site title.

2. There are no broken links and no under construction areas exist.

3. Your site must be available 24 hours a day and seven days a week. If your web host is unreliable, it means you must switch your web hosting company.
