Thanks Darryl!

I see what you mean... on the initial keyword search it does return as you said.

If you don't mind, one more question... at the very top of the return for "multimedia developers" it does provide a link to the primary category "Business and Economy: Companies: Computers: Multimedia: Authoring Services"... that is where the sites are indexed alphabetically, with numerics on top. Is it safe to say then that a title and description like "3dcompany Multi Media - developers of CDroms, etc..." would not only cover the keyword search but also put us near the top on the general category page?

I just want to make sure Yahoo! does not frown on the use of a number.

Thanks again in advance.


>Yahoo is the only SE that have humans look at your site and decide if it is worthy. When you typed "multimedia developers", did you notice Yahoo only high lighted the word "multimedia developers". Yahoo looks for the words you type in the Title (which is high lighted in blue) and the description. So if you typed "bicycle crash", Yahoo would pull up everything that had these two words in it. Then it would it would pull up listings for each word separatley.
>The word "3Dcompany" was probably not highlighted.
>Remember Yahoo wants content, useful info for their viewers. Not just an advertisement.
>>My husband and I are starting a multimedia development business and are researching names.
>>When keying in "multimedia developers" in Yahoo! there a hundreds of returns (obviously).
>>The top returns are sites titled with numerics ie: "3Dcompany".
>>Does Yahoo! allow submissions with numerics, if indeed they are legitimate domain names and company names?
>>We are building the name from the ground up with a good Yahoo! listing in mind, and need to know if this will work.
>>Thanks a million in advance!
