Getting Yahoo Slurp to Revisit a Brand New Site

Does anyone know how long it takes yahoo to re-visit a new site?

I launched a site a few weeks ago and its number 31 on Yahoo.

However, i can see that Yahoo hasn't visited it for a long time because the first few lines of body content that its displaying on its SERPs has been changed by me.

i am constantly adding new content, have a PR of 5/10 but no visit from yahoo....

I wouldn't worry about Yahoo search listings. They bring the least traffic by far. Concentrate on current powerhouse Google and the up and coming MSN. After that, Ask Jeeves should be on your list. Yahoo should be dead last.

This is a joke, right?

Must be! Yahoo! is second only to Google IMO.

Where you get your traffic is obviously going to differ across markets.

> Ask Jeeves should be on your list.

I have sites in at least 30 different niches, and I have top ten rankings in Ask for all of them - and I get more traffic from Yahoo in a week than I've gotten from Jeeves in year.

If you have a niche that has lots of Adwords inventory, you just will not get Jeeves traffic.

With the current situation at Google, the last thing I would do is ignore Yahoo. Simple as that.

You may need more links.

Did your brand new PR 5 come from one or two websites?

Try pointing more links at it, that usually gets slurp more active.

Aim Yahoo, MSN then Google.

Hello,

I launched a brand new website and had Yahoo crawl the entire website in about 20 minutes after putting it online, and it was indexed in Yahoo about 24-48 hours later.

Just install Wordpress on your site, add the RSS to My Yahoo, create a few simple post with links to various locations on your website, and ping your blog. I guarantee you that you website will be crawled immediately upon you doing this. Time needed = under 10 minutes.

I have plenty of incoming links, PR5 and new pages have not been indexed by Yahoo for months. Site is also in Yahoo Directory. I get new pages indexed by Google in 3-7 days. I get about 1/1000th the traffic from Y as G. What else is there to do besides what JWalters suggests?

Weird, I get into Google easiest, then Yahoo, but MSN? it's flaky as all get out for me.

I finally tried what JWalters said to do in post #10, but only YahooFeedSeeker/1.0 is visiting the site, not Slurp. I have many sites indexed by yahoo, just not this one subdomain with about a hundred pages i'd really like to see on yahoo sometime. Anybody have any other ways to get Slurp to come to a subdomain.

From past experience... unless you have a directory listing, spidering/adding new pages is quite infrequent.

Sites that I own with directory listings get crawled daily... new pages usually show within 7 days.
