If there is no "Suggest a Site" lin
k, then the page you are on does no
t allow listings to be added to it,
 most likely because it is a very g
eneral top-level page. Keep searchi
ng until you find your right niche
category! When searching for your n
iche category, try to find one that
 reduces your chances of being buri
ed alive by other site listings. Th
is usually means a very specific ca
tegory and the more specific you ar
e, the more kindly Yahoo will be wh
en it comes to listing your site.

Follow Yahoo's instructions or else
! If you try to sneak around their
rules they will ban you. Don't try
to break the rules by doing things
like using numbers, too much gratui
tous promotional language or brand
names in your descriptions. This is
 one situation where too much SEO i
n your copy can really hurt you.
This might seem odd, especially in
a business that seems to be all abo
ut promoting yourself but Yahoo wil
l frown on any title and descriptio
n that reads like promotional ad co
py. What Yahoo wants is a descripti
ve title and description without an
y hype (and this includes phrases s
uch as 'the best real estate agent
in town" and "unrivalled service"

Also you improve your chances of ac
ceptance if you can keep your meta
tag description to about 15-20 word
s. You might as well edit it down n
ow before Yahoo does it for you!

As Yahoo lists its sites alphabetic
ally, it might also benefit you to
choose a name that is among the fir
st five or six letters in the alpha
bet. If you can come up with a suit
able title for your site that start
s with A, B or C then make sure you
 use it as it will rank you higher
in the Yahoo search engine pages!
