Nope, not working for me either. I keep getting a timeout error on the page. When I check my weblogs though, I see Yahoo trying to access the page and get a 200 response in return.

I also get a timeout both with free submit and paid inclusion.

No way to contact Yahoo! and inform them - anyone know how to contact them as I would like to get my site in there...

Thanks

I wish that I was getting even that much.

From what I have seen links work be better than free submit, Just get some good quality links and wait for a month of so, your site is sure to be crawled and indexed,

Yahoo is very slow in indexing new sites compared to google,

I moved my site to a new server with a new IP. I tried the Y! directory submit again and still get the following message : We were unable to access your web page. Please double-check your URL.

When I use other urls it works... Any ideas? Please help, I don't know how to get in touch with Yahoo?

Just keep trying and it will finally work. It took me several days to hit. They must have an overload, and I imagine if you could contact someone they would tell you that. There's probably little phone support for free submit.

I am not trying free submit - I am trying paid Directory submit, but I suppose it uses the same service.

I did a little experiment with yahoo free submit. First of all, I do not believe you have to use an rss or atom feed. I did get it to accept a sitemap.xml file just as Google does. Secondly, I am suspicious that if you log on under a different IP address that you have a certain amount of time under that IP address in order to submit websites. I went from a comcast connection to a qwest high speed connection. At that time I was able to submit for a few minutes. I then tried using a new IP to submit from. Can someone else try this and see if you experience the same thing?

I'm just at my wits end with Yahoo and trying to come up with anything. I've already gone the route of the $299 to get to the search via the directory and it no longers works the way it used to.

Tried to submit a feed via xml, txt, and gz, all failed... No dice on any.

>>>Yahoo is very slow in indexing new sites compared to google,

I agree with this statement. According to my logs, in each of the last two months, Yahoo has hit 8,000 pages on my site (which has around 1,000 page). Even with all this spidering, Yahoo still only shows around 680 of my pages using the site: command.
