Have you noticed that Yahoo! takes a longer time than Google when indexing sites?

Just like Bing, Yahoo! has a slow crawl rate.  The workaround for this is to broadcast yourself to Yahoo! thru a Yahoo! mail account.

Here are the steps to perform this technique:

1. Login to your Yahoo! mail account.
2. Go to My Yahoo!.
3. Click on "+ Content"

4. Click on "Add RSS Feed"

5. Enter your site's RSS Feed then click the "Add" button.

6. Click on the "I'm Done" button.

Take note that this can be applied to sites with RSS feeds or blogsites only.  I've tried adding a SITEMAP.XML file but it did not work last time I checked.  Maybe sooner or later Yahoo! will add this feature.

Another technique that I use for blogsites is the Blog and Ping Technique which I had covered before.

That's it.  I hope my visual guide helped your sites get quicker indexing for the Yahoo! search engine.
