I am using the site feed function on Yahoo with a text fle of all my urls.

With Google sitemaps the file has to be placed at the same level directory as all the pages.

For Yahoo I am not sure if it matters where I put the urllist.txt file?

I want to put it in its own directory as I host sevreal sites in the same webspace and so need to make several urllist files which will change frequently (I wont explain why as its boring!)

eg. www.example.com/directory/urllist.txt

but the pages are at www.example.com/page1.htm

Will Yahoo index properly with the feed in this directory (I know Google would not)
