How You Can Get Another Free Listing In Yahoo

Let's be honest. There's three types of people inrepparttar world.

* Yahoos * Googlers * People who are neither, or both.

I've been lurking in forums, and I realized something - they seem to be a lot saner than I am. But then, almost everyone is.

I've been a Google gal for a while. There. I said it. And why not? Google has been good to me.

But Yahoo finally has me convinced that they are at minimum,repparttar 128295 top contender forrepparttar 128296 title of heavyweight search engine champion ofrepparttar 128297 world. I now take them very seriously for many reasons.

What really hasrepparttar 128298 potential to turn me into a type 2 or 3 isrepparttar 128299 attention Yahoo pays to RSS. Like everyone, I heardrepparttar 128300 big announcement back in February of this year that Yahoo was developing an RSS Directory, and had re-launched their Beta RSS Headlines module of "My Yahoo!".

Still, I took my time hopping onrepparttar 128301 "marketing through RSS" bandwagon, though I've had feeds on most of my sites since late 2002.

When I finally started using my feeds during some research, I ran across Yahoo's "Add to My Yahoo!" button on many sites that also carryrepparttar 128302 orange "XML" insignia,

And I have to say, it shocks me how easy it seems to be to get Yahoo to pay attention to your feed.

The folks at Yahoo tell you that they are forming an RSS Directory on this page: http://my.yahoo.com/s/publishers.html#find

The page goes on to tell you that getting your feed included is as simple as adding your feed to your own "My Yahoo" Page.

You may be thinking, as I was, that this can't berepparttar 128303 same Yahoo we're talking about. The one whose search engine many secretly hoped would fail, inrepparttar 128304 off chance that we could go back torepparttar 128305 Google-on-Yahoo days? (Don't look at me. I'm not THAT much of a Google gal.)

But yes,repparttar 128306 same Yahoo whose directory many found so difficult to get into in days of yore, lists your feed in their directory almost immediately.

Furthering my investigation, I blewrepparttar 128307 dust off my own Yahoo page, unused since 2003, scrolled down torepparttar 128308 bottom, and clickedrepparttar 128309 "choose content" button.

They didn't even try to hide it. In five steps, taking me less than a minute, my link was added.

Underrepparttar 128310 first section ofrepparttar 128311 options for "My Front Page", under "My Yahoo! Essentials", was "RSS Headlines (BETA)New!". I chose that (step one), and onrepparttar 128312 next page, all I had to do was type in my news feed, (step two) click search (step four), and then whenrepparttar 128313 page re-loaded, click onrepparttar 128314 "Finished" button (step five).
