I'm wondering if free submit is used, whether it'll possibly do any good. The site owner and business are in another country and it'll be hosted with the server in another country.

How long since anyone's had any luck with trying it?

I'm not sure if Free Submit works, but Yahoo definitely does still include sites into their directory for free. I run a sports related site, and Yahoo added it with no request from myself to do so.

Congrats. It's good to know yahoo hasn't closed the door on free directory listings for someone.
(going on year two and no joy here, oh well)

Do you mean that your site was added to the Yahoo! directory? Or simply that it showed up in a web search. These are very different things.

At Yahoo! you can either do a Web search or a Directory search.

Also they only let you use free submit if your site is not-for-profit. Is your site not-for-profit?

(Don't mean to sound like I'm lecturing. I'm trying to figure this stuff out myself!)

Thanks, Peter

Peter, yes to the Yahoo! Directory.

It's just a site I run as a hobby. I do have Adsense running, but I guess that didn't matter.

They are still adding new categories and I just had a link added recently (it's still marked "new"). Like sysdomatic, I hadn't submitted the page; they just found it and added it on their own.
