    Yahoo Listing - look!

    Check this out --> http://dir.yahoo.com/Health/Fitness/Magazines/

    my site is at the top: IronMagazine.com

    My question is will this help me with other search engines and directories such as LookSmart?

    your site is only temporarily at the top, this is because it's new.

    It will help with search engines that use link popularity (such as Google) a link to your site from Yahoo weighs in alot.

    LookSmart, or other directories, could care less about you being listed in Yahoo.

    Zeal has denied me, so is my only option to pay $149 to get listed in LookSmart?

    Or, will I eventually end up in their directory over time?

    Thanks!

    I'm not very familiar with the ins and outs of Zeal, but you should be able to resubmit after a month or so. Did they give you a reason why they denied you?

    Did you have to pay for your Yahoo! submission?

    Congratulations! I remember two years ago, when I got my site listed in /Sports News and Information, I was listed at the top, next to ESPN, Sportsline, etc. That lasted for a week and boosted my traffic insanely. Well, it went back down once that new tag was removed. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    Yup, I've been getting around 200 refers per day from Yahoo since it went in.

    Even when they drop me from the top, my listing will still only be one of 10 sites on the page, and I will be number four.

    No, I did not pay to get in. I just did a couple of manual submissions.
