I am hoping that one of you folks out there will be in a position to help me. I have a website that I have submitted to Yahoo 7 times in the last 10 months and still not listed. I would like to check my logs (yes, I save them all, great resource for research) to see if an editor ever visited. If they did, I know the rejected me, if they didn't I am considering paying for business express. Would like to know which situation I am facing. If anybody out there has an example of a page request from a Yahoo editor in their logs, I would appreciate if you could either post it here or email it to me. Thanks in advance.

Look for yahoo.com with an standard ie agent. Often it will be a Mac ie agent name. In other words, create your page with 640x400 in mind, and make sure that puppy is html valid! If it aint, it might not display right on a mac...

Watch your referral logs for IE and Mac or Macintosh in the agent name.

Before I got rid of Humanclick, I happened to be online and looking when the Yahoo editor visited my site.

The string from the editor was something like this:
bizex.surfer.yahoo.com

soon after I received my acceptance email from yahoo.

i would imagine that a regular submission would reveal the string to have surfer.yahoo.com in it.

Well, now I feel stupid. What is "html valid"? Is that just where you check all your tags and make sure every <tag> has a </tag>?

>html valid

Run it through the w3c html validator grnidone. You know this by now.
