    Question how many Yahoo's to submit too?

    couldn't find a definitive answer,


    if I submitted my site to say yahoo.co.uk (basically all the country specific yahoo)

    do I still have to submit to the main Yahoo.com site?

    just trying to figure out if it automatically combines the site searches. hope that makes sense.

    thanks

    Since I'm in the US, I submitted first to the main Yahoo site, without really thinking of the others. But then, since my potential clients could be anywhere, I started submitting to the other Yahoo sites.

    It turns out that the various Yahoo's don't all have the same submission criteria (some just want you to be of interest to local-language people, others want your site to be in the local language, for instance), so it may be easier to get listed in some than in others. But, because of the different criteria, I would guess that the results of a search starting at different Yahoo's might not be the same.

    At any rate, people are finding my site with their local Yahoo, since the 'other' Yahoo's are showing up in my access logs.

    regards,

    I think some of the other yahoo's are free to submit to also.
