Yahoo registering - first page - I think I am in trouble!!
From bradley blinn on 20 June '98

Oh boy, I think I may have a problem. In a couple of months, I will be obtaining my own domain name, so right now I am trying to learn how to produce good search results.

The main focus of my website is going to be fundraising.

So, I have been researching the competition and seeing how their web sites rank with the search engines and Yahoo....

Here is my question (and some info to help you follow along):

If you go to www.yahoo.com and type in the word "fundraising" you will get the following results: (Please take note of the 9 companies and where they are listed) I copied the below information right from Yahoo.

***(please find my little note - that is where I want to be listed)

My website is in direct competition with The Fundraising Bazaar and another site listed there

My question is how do I get my site listed alongside these 9 other companies??? What do I need to do? Is it possible to get my website listed with those other 9? If so, how? I REALLY need your help.

I know I could probably get listed on other pages underneath the category heading of Business and Economy: Companies: Fund Raising, but I would like to see the site on this first page of search results.

Someone mentioned to me that they tried to register their website among those other nine, but they said Yahoo was not accepting any more listings there. Is that true?

If You don't quite understand what I am looking for, please email me at: Fundraise@aol.com......I look forward to your email....If you post here, please make sure you also send me an email!!!!!!!!

Sincerely,

Bradley Blinn
