The second thing was an announcement of a Google Sitemaps product for Yahoo! It doesn't have a name, and I am told it went live the Thursday at SES, but for some reason, I did not see anyone talk about it. Until now, when I saw SEO Scoop post an entry about it.
Go to http://submit.search.yahoo.com/free/request You will see an additional line added that reads;
You can also provide the location of a text file containing a list of URLs, one URL per line, say urllist.txt. We also recognize compressed versions of the file, say urllist.gz.
So there you go, Sitemaps for Yahoo! Pay for Inclusion without the Pay, just no guarantees.
