If you're finding it difficult to get a good ranking in Yahoo searches, you may want to learn about Yahoo Directory. This has its ups and downs, however, that you should be aware of. First of all, this directory receives hundreds upon thousands of submissions and entries every day. Because of this, you may have to wait awhile to receive a reply to your entry. Many people state that their website received absolutely no help in search results after doing this and, in fact, may have dropped in the rankings. Other people state that their website actually did better. You may think that you can just word your submission perfectly so that it HAS to adjust your ranking. Unfortunately this is not the case; Yahoo Directory employs editors who will more often than not edit your submission if they find it does not adhere strictly to the yahoo terms of service. Such editions may turn out to be less than advantageous to your ranking.So let's go back to the problem of waiting for a while before knowing if your submission gets approved. When I said earlier that the directory receives a lot of submissions daily, what I meant was that the US directory gets a lot of submissions. If you were to, say, submit to the directory for a different country, let's use Thailand as an example, your submission would be processed MUCH faster, as the Thailand directory does not receive as much traffic. As your site only needs to gain acceptance into this directory to rank positively in Yahoo, it will not make any difference which directory your site is listed in.So, let's say you really want to be listed in the US directory. A possible avenue for you is to purchase a paid subscription. For an annual fee of $299 you will be listed automatically in the Yahoo Directory. If you've read any of my other articles, you'll know that I am strongly against paying for subscriptions like this when just a little bit of leg work will get you the same results. That said, I offer this as an alternative if you're short on time or manpower. You must remember that purchasing this subscription doesn't necessarily mean top listings, or even approval. Your website will still be subject to the scrutiny of the editors.Having your website ranked well in Yahoo searches is definitely important. It is one of the top search engines in the world. Being listed in the Yahoo Directory is not important per se, but it will help you rank higher in Yahoo search results. In addition, there are guidelines for the Yahoo search engine that have been published for webmasters to take advantage of.Alfred hill is good at writing about various things happening in the internet.
