HOW TO: Get Your Site Featured On Yahoo! News

Yahoo! NewsYahoo! News is one of the most popular news aggregators out there. It gets millions of visitors now and then, and it will be great if your site gets a place there.

Think about the traffic and huge exposure. Yahoo! News works almost similar to Google News and Techmeme. Main stories, which you can see on front page, are generated by content partners indeed.

Getting Featured On Yahoo! News [Basic]

Below I mentioned 4 simple steps to make Yahoo! aware about your site/blog. That will be a great step for achieving this feat.

#1 – Submit Your Site : Make sure your blog/site is indexed by Yahoo! properly. If not, then submit your site URL to Yahoo! search engine.

#2 – Yahoo! Directory : You can actually suggest a site to get listed in Yahoo! Directory — The large scale directory of the Internet., though am not sure whether this one is really useful, still nothing wrong in trying this. 🙂

#3 – Yahoo! Site Explorer : Site Explorer allows you to explore all the web pages indexed by Yahoo! Search. View the most popular pages from any site, dive into a comprehensive site map, and find pages that link to that site or any page. Add your site/blog there.

#4 – Yahoo! News Source Form : Yahoo! likes to have your opinions too. Just fill this form and make sure you satisfy Yahoo! with all your answers and sources. Finally if your blog is approved/accepted, they’ll contact you.

Getting Featured On Yahoo! News [Tips]

You don’t need to work so hard to get featured, instead just follow the normal rules. I already mentioned those tips on getting featured on Google News and Techmeme articles. Below I mentioned 3 common tips for getting featured.

  • Original Content : Unless your content is unique and SEO friendly, you can’t get featured. Also avoid duplicate posts.
  • Multi-Authored : It will be great if your blog has more than one or two authors. For this, enable Guest Blogging on your blog.
  • Response Time : Your pages should index and load quickly.

  1. Thanks for this information. I am looking similar article and tips exactly for Yahoo! News because our website featured daily breaking news and the like.

  2. Yahoo news..Interesting. Maybe getting into Yahoo News would be much easier as compared to Google News 😛

  3. thanks for the excellent article, i have never really thought about yahoo news, that’s another source i should try and get into. Though i guess, the biggest factor, above all, is the size of your blog, am sure just like google news, yahoo too won’t accept smaller blogs into their news site. No harm in trying though 🙂

  4. I have tried most of the steps you’ve mentioned over here, except the multi-authors. I’m going to add this one to my blog and lets see how it goes.

    • multi author greatly helps, but make sure to have real authors, if you make multiple authors yourself and post like someone else, they will figure it out by your writing style…

  5. Hey Very Unique Information. I was not knowing this.. Will Try for my forum and blog :).. Thanks for sharing..
