SEO - How To Write A Profitable Yahoo Directory Listing
If you are having a business and are serious about getting some visibility on the internet getting listed in the Yahoo Directory is something you can't afford to miss. There are however many criteria that you will need to consider including your web site title and description.
Yahoo is accepting only your business or website name in the title. So it is imperative to choose a website or business name that represent well your field. This is applicable when submitting to major directories.
Suppose that you are selling natural weight loss products and your website URL is:
A good and effective title for The Yahoo Directory would be: ''Natural Weight Loss Programs.com''
And a good and effective description would be:
''Featuring natural weight loss products, diet plans and natural energy supplement formulated from natural ingredients.''
When writing your site description makes sure that it helps in making your category selection better. Also, have it lean towards the category in which your site should be listed in. When submitting in a manufacturing listing, there must be some mention of manufacturers and also remember not to hype your site too much. It may be a good idea to view other similar sites to get an idea of what works and what does not. Write a short and concise descriptions using your main keywords.
You will also need to consider the directory category in which to list your site. Doing a search in the directory using your main keywords will help you to identify the best category suited for your website.
You may also suggest a second category for your site to appear in.
When you go to the appropriate commercial sub-category relevant to your site, you will see the Suggest a Site links at the bottom.
Keeping these points in mind will make sure that your Yahoo! Directory listing is profitable.
