  • Updated 8 years ago
Yola should have a auto-directories submitter to dir.yahoo.com for new signups of Yola sites, and also a field with all the categories of dir.yahoo.com.

If you go to a category on dir.yahoo.com there will be a link at the bottom named "Suggest a site" you must select the free plan. Your going to need permission from Yahoo to have a quick signup form on the signup of a free website.

But if this isn't so possible, Just use the idea for individual use.

For youcanenverbetoosmart.synthasite.com, Education Category selected,
Add your listing in the directory at the link below,

http://add.yahoo.com/fast/add?86164

and For littelus,

Category: Fashion and Beatury for dejavu apparel, (i couldn't find a individual category named apparel)

Add your listing in the directory at the link below,

http://add.yahoo.com/fast/add?147866

To add yours go to
Dir.yahoo.com , Find your category and if you cannot find it, Use the search and look for the categories there.

This gains popularity as well as professionalism.

Great idea!

I tried to do the free listing as you suggested, but when I'd found the right category and clicked 'Suggest a site' I wasn't presented with the free version, only the paid option. Am I doing something wrong?

I think you aren't fammiliar with Yahoo dir.

Yahoo isn't a free directory at all. For business sites , they costs $ 299 from us to SUBMIT (not to add to it)

so it is better to show your site NON PROFIT.

Showing two banners in the page or referring a site isn't a business as they think.

In addition , you need to choose the right category to listing. remember , you've only one chance to submit.
I think they ban IPs after submit , since some of my friends rejected first , but they never got at leased reviewed their application later.

So , spend at least a day to choose the right category. They manually checks the site and include only if you've good content.

No matter how your site fresh , no matter how your site decorated.
Remember , those who copied content from other sites gets banned.(my friend - vish got banned for ever untill he move on to a new domain)

first , do a simply prayer and choose the right category. Then , fill the application carefully.(you need to pay 299 or 699 $ if your site is business or adult one , per year.).

Bite the bullet and hit submit.

They take nearly 4 weeks to review your application.

No response = rejected

extracted from experience.
Good luck.
