You can do this with Yahoo and Bing....Did you submit your site to each and get the meta tag code?

Verifying a site with Yahoo! requires a metatag or a file uploaded to the root directory which is not currently possible in Yola. Verifying your site with a search engine such as Google or Yahoo is mostly for the purpose of getting statistics on your site, and not so much for indexing purposes. We have made it very easy for you to verify your site with Google Webmaster and submit a sitemap, here is a link to the tutorial: Verifying Your Site With Google Webmaster.

You can submit your URL to the major search engines such as Google, Yahoo and MSN, but should only use the verification method with Google if you have a site built with Yola. When you submit your URL to the search engines you are putting your site on a list of sites to be crawled by that search engine. This does not guarantee indexing, but can help to alert the search engine to your website's presence. Here is a link to a tutorial that has information on submitting your site to the major search engines: Promoting Your Site.

Yola has developed a short series of SEO Tutorials which will take you through the process of building, maintaining and promoting your website with search engine optimization in mind, here is a link: SEO Tutorials. You may also be interested in watching a webinar at, Introduction to SEO.

I hope this information will be helpful!
