Yahoo-we're in! and how I did it.
From Jeff at Ackley Uniforms on 19 Feb '99
Last month, after two years of trying, I gimped my way into Yahoo! via
the "easier" local listings. We were not listed under... Apparel:
Uniforms:Medical with the anointed few of our industry. We were
relegated to a listing under the suburb of Crestwood Missouri, a town
with two gas stations and a big mall.

Our local listing came less than a week after I sent a plea to the
Yahoo help address: url-support@yahoo-inc.com

Two weeks ago I wrote to the same address at Yahoo and explained
that we are a national business (admittedly a pretty small one) with
locations in Missouri and Illinois and that a national listing was
more appropriate. My email was about three sentences long.

Note that our site, as mentioned earlier, was created with FP98; it
has no online ordering and not a ton of "content." The site had been
submitted many times before. Note also we did not get any email
from them before we showed up in their index today.

I have no idea whether my two emails did a thing. Has anyone else on
here found themselves on Yahoo right after contacting url-support?
