Despite Rumors: Yahoo Directory Still Accepting Submissions

Sep 14, 2009 • 8:20 am | comments (4) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Yahoo Web Directory

On Friday afternoon, there was this rumor spreading through Twitter that the Yahoo Directory was no longer accepting submissions.

Maybe it was true for a minute or two, but as of a few minutes after the rumor, it seems like anyone who tested the Yahoo Directory submission process, learned that they were indeed taking new sites.

I personally just submitted a site to the Yahoo Directory as a test and it went through the free submission process with no problem. I do find it interesting how people reTweet stuff without first making sure what is being Tweeted is legit.

Here is a picture of the submission add page:

After this page, you are taken to a form to fill out your site's detail.

"...I do find it interesting how people reTweet stuff without first making sure what is being Tweeted is legit." People will do that under any circumstances. They'll blindly repeat rumors without thinking. But try convincing them those rumors are wrong, and you'll suddenly find they are all critical and skeptical. The truth is out there because it's seldom in here.

Yahoo will always accept the directory submission no matter what people says to it.

This is rumour obviously.  I don't think yahoo directory will get article submission freely. everyone want that his site backlinks will be available in yahoo directory. I am always prefer free article submission site to submit the article. directory submission

Hello, I am not sure if this is actually true as yahoo maintains good security standards and does not allow any kind of spamming as well. So I would say this is just another rumor. _______ article submission
