How to Suggest Your Site

The Yahoo! Directory is organised by subject. Most sites in it are suggested to us by users. Sites are placed in categories by Yahoo! Editors, who visit and evaluate your suggestions and decide where they best belong. We do this to ensure that Yahoo! is organised in the best possible way, making the Directory easy to use, intuitive, helpful, and fair to everyone.

The Yahoo! Directory is very different from Yahoo! Search. The goal of Yahoo! Search Technology is to automatically discover and index all of the content available on the web predominantly by following hyperlinks to provide the best possible search experience to users.

If you would like to submit your site to Yahoo! Search, please visit the Yahoo! Search submission site to review your options.

If you still wish to suggest a site to a Yahoo! editor, we ask that you follow three simple, yet important steps:

Step 1: Check to See if Your Site is Already in Yahoo!

An important first step, because if your site is already listed in Yahoo!, you need go no further. Check by searching Yahoo! for your site by URL or title.

Step 2: Find the Appropriate Category in Yahoo!

Finding an appropriate category for your site is at the heart of this process. Remember that Yahoo! Editors review sites suggested to us, and proper categorisation on your part helps us process submissions quickly.

What is an appropriate category? We have a list of important pointers explaining how we organise our Directory.

For sites accessible through mobile devices and sites in Chinese, Danish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, or Swedish, please visit the appropriate Yahoo! property or service. Sites that are in a foreign language represented by our International Directories will not be added to www.yahoo.com.au.

Step 3. Suggest your site from the Appropriate Category

Suggest your site from the category you think most appropriate. Do this by clicking on the "Suggest a Site" link at the top or bottom of that category page. Again, here is a list of important pointers to help you establish where your site belongs. Also remember that the final placement of your site is determined by Yahoo! Editors.

When you click on "Suggest a Site" in an appropriate category, you'll see an online form asking for information about your site. If you are suggesting your business site somewhere within our main commercial categories, you may see a link to the fee-based Yahoo! Express submission process (US Only) - required for commercial sites. To submit to or for more information about Yahoo! Express, please visit our US Directory

In the "category" space on the form, you'll see the name of the category you've chosen. Please be prepared to provide, among other information, your site's title, URL, and a brief description.

Finally, thanks for suggesting your site!
