Is Yola compatible with Yahoo or not?

I've tried various times to validate my site with Yahoo but they all end in failure.Even entering the Yahoo code in the Google webmaster code box works for a brief time...but putting the Google code back in, after verification, results in failure as soon as Yahoo re-checks it's verification code.

I notice that tutorials only deal with Google..is this for (the now) obvious reasons?

So I'll ask again...is Yola compatible with Yahoo or not?... and, if so, how?

Regards
Mark

I added the meta tag at the end of page description on my home page...verified then removed it and I have been fine ever since.I have not had an instance of Yahoo needing to re verify ...Or you can leave the tag at the end of page description.

Hi John and tnx for that.

After the initial verification is passed...then after a couple of days...Yahoo Site explorer comes up with authentification failed...internal error verify_52.

so..I'm at a loss.

It would be nice to have a small tutorial explaining this

Hello Mark,

We would suggest that you do not put the Yahoo verification code in the Google Webmaster field as the two meta tags are different and Google will come back to check your site for the meta tag and if it is not there they will be unable to return a accurate statistics about your site.

Verifying your site with Google or Yahoo is mostly for the purpose of getting statistics on your site and not so much for indexing purposes.

I would suggest that you submit your url to the major search engines, but only use the verification method for Google.

Here is a link to our tutorial: Promoting Your Site which will give you information on this topic.
