Yahoo Business express problem
Rejected by YAHOO

Msg#: 24 posted 12:23 am on Dec 30, 2000 (gmt 0)

I submitted a site via Biz express and like promised they got back to me within 7 days but rejected using that standard language of a "lack of content". Now I have to appeal and I like how they dont give you any suggestions at all, leaving you to believe that someone might have skimmed the site at best.

I was hoping someone could take a look at the site and make some suggestions before I appeal.

I presume before I appeal I need to do something to the site.

The problem I have is the site is pretty sharp and has decent content. While MANY other sites that are in Yahoo are very plain, have no content or dont even exist anymore.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

And which Bizex editor rejected it (they all specify a number)?

(sorry for the lateness of this post)Yahoo's standards have changed considerably. You can't look at the directory necessarily to judge what kind of sites they will accept because there are older sites in there before their guidelines became stricter. For everyone else with similar problems, if you get rejected for lack of content, I would crank out a bunch of unique content in the next 2 weeks after rejection and appeal. Don't let lack of content be the cause of rejection, Yahoo is too important to neglect. It is amazing how much you can put on a site in a short period of time. If you are ignorant on the subject and intimidated with writing, read more on the topic or hire a college English major to do the work for you.
