Question Will Yahoo! accept my new website? - Opinions wanted!

Hi guys,

I recently registered a domain name & made a website about Netsetter so I can earn commission whenever someone signs-up through the website using my CJ link. I was wondering if I pay Yahoo! $199.00 for the review, will they accept this kind of website?

That fee is non-refundable so I would just like some opinions on this before I go ahead and pay them for the review. If you guys think it's not worth it, then I would rather spend that money on some advertising for the website. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Please post your opinions on this.

Thanks in Advance.

Not to knock your site or anything, but I highly doubt they'd accept it. Most search engines have policies against pages that are just ads and little more. I don't think its worth a try @ $199.

Here's an idea for you though:
Make it into a site that reviews all the little Internet utilities, ie, CallWave, Pagoo, Netsetter, and others, and tells how they work, tips and other stuff. Then you would have content + creditibility, and they would see your site as more than an elaborate advertisement.

Just an idea http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Cool. Thanks suresk for your neat idea! My friend gave me the same suggestion yesterday. But the domain name is InternetSpeeder.com (Hehe!) so will CallWave and other similair programs look good on it? (Which has Nothing to do with Speed or anything).

I know if I have more programs listed, I will be able to earn more money plus more search engines & directories will list me... But do you know of any good programs in CJ which are for Speeding up the Internet connections or downloads, or something like this?

Thanks for your help!

I can't think of any others on CJ or other places I've seen. However, you can easily incorporate other programs into your site, it just requires a bit of creativity http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif If you need further help, I'd probably have to see your site, but I'm more than willing to help out. If you want, contact me via ICQ at: 73370481

take care

From Yahoo!'s Business Express page:

"My site contains substantively unique content that is not already accessible from the Yahoo! Directory. (For example: a user that submits multiple URLs to the very same content is not submitting substantively unique content.) [Section 3.1]"

As just noted, I also do not believe a site like what you mentioned would have enough content to be "substantively unqiue".

I personally have used Yahoo!'s Business express in the past (and plan to use it again in the next few days) and definitely recommend it for anyone who has a site they feel is up to Yahoo!'s standards. The amount of visitors a Yahoo! listing sends per day is definitely worth the listing fee.
