Yahoo! editors view repeated submission of the same website as spam. Therefore,Three Uncommon Tips for Yahoo! Submission Articles it's crucial to submit your site only when necessary. If your site isn't listed within three weeks of submission, you can submit it again. However, if it's still not listed after the second submission, refrain from submitting it again.

Here's an example of an email you can send to Yahoo! support:

Tip 2: The Significance of Color Choice

The choice of color on your website can significantly impact your chances of getting listed on Yahoo! Successful web entrepreneurs suggest, and I concur, that black text on a white background is the best way to present your content. Use color to accent your website, but avoid using more than three color combinations, excluding black and white. Ensure these colors complement each other and that the linked text is not overly bright or distracting. If you're unsure about your color choices, consider seeking a second opinion.

A professional-looking website increases your chances of getting listed.

Tip 3: Steer Clear of the Novice Look

Centering everything or using large areas of bold text on your website can make it look amateurish. Instead, center headlines and subheadings, and left-justify the rest of your content. Use larger fonts only for headlines and subheadings, and bold text for highlighting important key thoughts and keywords.

Animated banners and buttons can be distracting, so use them sparingly or not at all. Lastly, ensure your site is free of grammar and spelling errors by having a friend review it.
