Yahoo Submission (3rd attempt)

Of the free downloaded info from the Make Your Site Sell - 5 Pillar Affiliate program web site the pages on Yahoo Submission seemed the easiest and most promising to implement. I have tried to get listed in Yahoo a couple of times and failed, so this should be a good test. I have managed to get the site into most other directories including two listings from (now

Notes on the new submission - As per the book I have shortened the Title and Description fields dramatically and removed anything that could be considered 'marketing hype' such as 'beautiful', 'unique', 'attractive'. Maybe I should have also left out the silk painting as this does not really fit under embroidery - maybe the web site should be split into two - one for embroidery and one for silk painting. I will probably submit to the directory as we are a uk based company - also we do not accept credit cards (yet) which makes us less attractive to an international audience. One of the best tips from the documentation is to write down what you have done - I keep trying to remember what I did the last time both on amcho which succeeded and tamarembroideries which did not. By documenting it all, mistakes should be avoided, while success repeated (I hope). For information I have tried to reconstruct my previous yahoo submission from memory - see it here
Having finally got all the info together the site was submitted to yahoo on Friday 23 July 1999. Unfortunately, after all that work, the site was not even visited. I have decided against resubmitting the site as after getting involved with the Moorland Exhibition at Princetown Tamar Embroideries has expanded from being an embroidery kit maker to being a general supplier of art and craft materials, so the next submission will have to wait till the site has been rewritten to more closely reflect what the company does now. In the mean time I have decided to get a different client into yahoo - please see the next page!
