replying to All the BEST minds... Is Yahoo worth it??? posted by Nurse Job Find

By the way, I forgot to mention that my site was finally listed with Yahoo - I didn't just give up on it. I replied to the editor when the problems were fixed "hoping" that would work - it did! And when it was listed, I did receive an acceptance letter...

>My previous site took almost 3 months for a Yahoo! editor to write me a rejection letter (some parts of my site didn't work with Netscape and had pages that said "coming soon"). I am not sure if this was a rejection from my very first submission (I did one once a month!) and it REALLY took that long, or if it was because I had talked to their advertising dept. about a banner ad, but wasn't listed at that point - and they knew it. Do they normal respond with a rejection letter - or only when you are finally accepted?
>My new site is up to speed and ready to roll. I have used several tools to make sure that everything works well, works on all browsers, etc.
>If I submit this one to Yahoo! and it is acceptable (I am 99% sure it is!) how long generally does it take to get a response back? I have the money set aside for the Business Express - because getting my other site on Yahoo tripled my traffic - is this worth my hard earned $199? Does a good site take a week or two to get into Yahoo! or can it be a couple of months again??
>By the way, the help I have gotten on this site has made a huge difference in the development of my new site... can't wait to go back to my other site and fine tune it next!!
