Yahoo! Search allows any user to submit a list of pages for submission in Yahoo!’s search index. You may submit site feeds to Yahoo! formatted as RSS 0.9, 1.0, or 2.0, Atom 0.3, or a text file with one URL per line.
You can automate the process if you would like with just a few simple steps.
- Start with the base URL of http://submit.search.yahoo.com/free/request?pass=1&class=1. Parameters
- Add a
urlparameter, setting the value to the URL-encoded location of your feed. Example: http%3A%2F%2Fexample.com%2Ffeed.xml
- Submit via HTTP post.
Sending a ping to blo.gs might eventually accomplish the same thing but until then you can be sure your content is available in Yahoo! Search results as soon as possible by sending a ping with each content change.
