    Hi all,

    my site was accepted into the yahoo directory. whether the Yahoo directory is a good link and the possibility that i may have wasted my money is neither here nor there so please don?t comment on this ;)

    What i have noticed is that the category that Google has put me in is not indexed in Google.

    Is it possible for me to build backlinks to this URL and social bookmark it to get Google to crawl and index it?

    OR

    Will Google not index this URL using these methods?

    There are some knowledgeable people on this forum and i wold appreciate it if anyone could shed some light so i can get Google to see this nice authority backlink from yahoo to my site.

    thanks.

    well google IMO is the first one to pickup sites. If your site is not indexed by th big G just bookmark your site :
    Code:
    Mister-wong.com (PR 7)
    Spurl.net (PR 6)
    Diigo.com (PR 6)
    Bibsonomy.org (PR 6)
    Backflip.com (PR 6)
    Jumptags.com (PR 6)
    OYAX.com (PR 6)
    Linkagogo.com (PR 5)
    Buddymarks.com (PR 5)
    MyLinkVault.com (PR 5)
    a1-Webmarks.com (PR 4)
    Connectedy.com (PR 4)
    BookmarkRracker.com (PR 4)
    
    Also submit to :
    Code:
    Digg.com (PR 8)
    Propeller.com (PR 8)
    Del.icio.us (PR 8)
    The last 3 are NOFOLLOW but you can be sure that your site will be indexed within 12 hours if you submit to any 5 of the above list and all 3 of the other list.

    Other than that you could make a sitemap of you site and submit to google webmasters tools.

    That should get it done

    Thanks

    I would first ping the url to see if it gets indexed, try pingler.com

    Failing that email Yahoo Directory Services, I am assuming you paid the premium listing ($299) yes?

    hi thanks for this i have tried to ping, its only been 1 day so see how it goes. but my main question is: will google not index this site due to the URL length or how deep the categorys is?

    When you do the backlinks on the bookmarking sites virus_1720 gave you, just be sure to use the right keywords for the category you are wanting to target. That should help with what you're concerned about.

    thanks i have been using these keywords.

    so i guess the answer is that google will index these categorys if i build some links as advised?

    i was just wondering if google will refuse to index such a long category or URL.
    thanks
