Is Yahoo applying a time delay on newly submitted sites

 12:37 pm on Nov 22, 2000 (gmt 0)

Read in a post (sure it was here but cant find it) that after being included in the Yahoo database and the site showed up in the search directory results, that the newly submitted sites were getting buried for some time in the results.

Is this happening and if so, what sort of a timeframe can one expect before the site achieves its "true ranking". Is it possibly a "click-thru" mechanism which Yahoo has implemented which would prejudice new submissions?

Interested to hear from you all. In the past, one benefitted from a traffic spike with an initial listing.

I have watched enough to say that their is a delay as it goes thru their system.... as to the time frame and click thru part, it all depends on how competitive the area is.

If you want to see what rankings might look like without the click pop, try searching in au.yahoo.com ...I don't think any other yahoo besides the US version counts outgoing clicks (check by mouseing over the listings)

Thanks DogBoy,

Did mouse over them and checked out the URL string with the numbers and figured it to be a popularity measurable.

Will definitely take a look at Oz's Yahoo!

other than that, work on other stuff because it may take a few months for you to rise to the top.... and that is only if you are completely tuned up. Good luck. Watch yourself in Google too... they are linked.
