Your old website is not listed in the Yahoo directory, or the Yahoo
Canadian directory. I can see where this is very confusing, so I'll do
all I can to help. Here is where your old listing is coming up in
search results :
The results above are indeed Yahoo 'search' results, but are provided
to Yahoo by Google. You can see the Google logo at the top right of
the results. It's a small Google logo, with the text 'Powered by' on
it. To see if your listing is in the *separate* Yahoo directory, we
can check here:
Yahoo Main Directory results for Altona Forest
Yahoo Canadian Directory results for Altona Forest
Yahoo offers Google results as their primary search source. To use
their directory as a default search source, you can point your browser
So where do we go from here? Simply submit your new URL to Google for
Google Add URL
Google will then index your new site at their discretion. Once it is
indexed, it will then appear in the default Yahoo listings as well.
This can take anywhere from 1 day to months, depending on how well
your new site is linked to througout the internet.
Yahoo does still accept suggestions to their directory, but have moved
more toward commercial inclusion and paid listings. To learn how to
suggest a site to Yahoo Canada, take a look at these instructions :
How to Suggest a site to Yahoo Canada
I hope this clarifies the difference between the two engines. Should
you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. I would be
glad to assist you further.
To assist with this answer, I searched around the Yahoo Canada website
for submission guidelines. I also searched both the main Yahoo website
directory, and the Canadian directory for your old website.
Thanks for the great question -
