I didn't mean to be critical of Deadlock. But anything written about
SEs is largely out of date within 6 months. Certainly anything posted
about Lycos several months ago is now out of date.

My personal opinion is that there is a heck of a lot of randomness built
into SEs. Too many sites rank high for no obvious reason.

I think that very little written here or elsewhere about Yahoo is correct.
Some recently accepted sites have NO visible content. I got into
Yahoo by sending them an email!

Yahoo themselves have said the main trick to getting in is just luck.
They look at very few submitted sites; but they do accept most sites
that they look at. They have said that very few sites are rejected
because they lack quality content. Mine is in; so the content bar must
be set pretty low!
