    I just submitted my site to yahoo! express

    Hi all,

    i have just submited my site to yahoo and paid the 200usd for them to review it. Has anyone had any experiece with this? How many hits should i recieve? I know it is mainly determined by a good descripition but i would just like to know if its going to be in the 10's, 100's or 1000's...

    Also if you could, please check out my site for any reason why my site would not get into the list.

    Thanks,
    Phil g

    If you have a site where there is not alot of competition you'd get a ton of traffic.

    Unfortunately with web hosting you probably have alot of competition

    I submitted through yahoo! express and did expect a lot of traffic. I am only getting 10/day. I tried but it didn't work out as I expected. But everyone who can afford should try to get listed in yahoo!.

    < Also if you could, please check out my site for any reason why my site would not get into the list. >

    1. You MUST add an address to your site.
    2. Consider to get a privacy policy

    Other from that you shouldn't have any problems getting listed in yahoo. Remember to add an address to your site before the reviewer get it.

    oh,

    I didn't see that. I was asuming I would find it on the about us page.

    I don't think you will have any problem getting listed but good luck.

    How much traffic you pull in will depend on your category.

    Some categories drive us hundreds of visitors a day; others only ten or so. Depends on the subject of your site. It seems that you've submitted yours to a webmaster resource/web host category; those are pretty saturated. Although search engines will probably love you for it and boost your rankings anyway..

    Give it to the veryveryvery end of the seventh day. They really like to push the limit.

    After that, call them. Or email them. But I'm sure you'll get an answer if you've paid.

    Good luck!

    Hello, I`m also thinking about getting into Yahoo, but I`m afraid that maybe it will mean as little traffic as the_Tick got. Could anyone please evaluate how much traffic I would maybe get from a listing in http://dir.yahoo.com/Business_and_Ec.../Collectibles/ , nothing exact of course, just an estimate.
    Thanks

    Do you get 400 uniques a day, just from Yahoo? Or as a whole? 400 a day from Yahoo would be pretty impressive if you ask me, I sure never received that.

    If you get 400 uniques as a whole, how many are from Yahoo?

    I think 400 a day is pretty average if you're in a small category. Larger categories (20+ sites in it) result in lousy traffic numbers (okay.. maybe not lousy for a single traffic source, but less than stellar). The smaller the better.

    Thanks for that information, Adam. I'm obviously in the big categories.

    Does that have to be your real address or is a P.O.Box enough? Why would I have to add an address anyway? I live in Israel and I really don't see why it should make any difference to Yahoo...
