Yahoo Free Submit Timeout Errors
Is this Still Happening?

When I try to use the free submit service at submit.search.yahoo.com I continually get the message "Your submission request was not accepted because: The following resulted when trying to access your document: timeout"
I've tried several different sites all with the same result. Anybody else having any more luck?

Yes, same thing here. timeout, regardless of what site I use.

Initially, I had the same problem and sometimes still do. It might be coincidence, but I found by opening another brower and bringing up the site, then returning to the browser with the Yahoo free submit the submit went through. I've done this for a couple of sites and have no idea why it happens.

Good proposal, Storyman - alas it still doesn't do the business for me.

Curious...

When you access your site is there a lag time before it shows? Could it be that the server is taking too long to show the page, which in turn makes Yahoo think that the page isn't available. Somewhere I read in Yahoo that slow pages is one reason for timeouts.

Just tried to add yahoo itself, with the same error message.

Just keep clicking submit. It may take up to 100 clicks but it has eventualy accepted all my sites.
