If being listed fast is more important than the $300(us) or so it takes then I would say it's worth it. Sites that are entering an already competitive area or that need to be indexed quickly I submit to yahoo. It seems to get all the bigger engines to list a site faster. If the project is something more obscure or if saving money is more important than time I submit to dmoz and the others first and let google and therefore yahoo find it on its own. Being listed in the yahoo directory also gives you some small amount of credibility for being a proper business as you have to prove yourself to yahoo first. Maybe this is why other engines pick up faster this way? I thought Yahoo was going away from using the google engine and going to use inktomi as its primary source. Did anyone hear what happened to that? And is anyone happily using overture? What situations do you find Overture being a valuable service? -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces-orion=electrick.net at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces-orion=electrick.net at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Joshua Olson Sent: Tuesday, November 25, 2003 9:20 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Is Yahoo worth it?
