    I try submitting a site of mine:

    shakespeare.literature-web.net

    to yahoo and it wont accept it?

    does yahoo not accept url's with subdomains? It seems very silly of them not to.

    Are you sure they rejected it because of the subdomain? Yahoo is very hard to get into although that is less so now. www.PromotionBase.com has a lot of articles on how to get into Yahoo as does www.YahooSecrets.com , so you may want to check one of those out.

    hmm I should rephrase that, and I 'm sure I'm good enough to get into yahoo.

    Its submission script is rejecting it as not being a valid URL.

    Its a very valid URL. But I get this "non valid url" error when trying to submit it.

    Its more than 26 characters... 30 to be exact. In fact I can't even connect to it through my proxy server here at work.

    Why is this not valid for Yahoo's input form? Type that into a browser and it works.

    I have tried several different times on various providers and through different proxies. I have not been able to pull up the site. I can pull up the main site of www.literature-web.net but not either of the subdomains.

    right now I'm in the middle of switching hosting companies so there is a problem accessing things. Its crazy my ftp goes to the new servers but my browser goes to the old.

    In any case my problems with yahoo were before all this happened, so the page was accessable then.

    I have had that happen to me when using submission services ( ineedhits.com and such ). then when I go to the search engine home page and resubmit it works fine. Give it a try.

    I can't get to your site either...

    BUT, just because it is good enough, doesn't mean it can get in. My site is plenty good, but I can't get listed. If your site is just shakespears plays (or something else common) then you don't have a very good chance. They always seem to be looking for something unique and different... or so I've been told
