How to Add a URL to Yahoo

Step1
Go to the Yahoo! homepage. The menu bar at bottom of the page provides a link to "Suggest a site."
Step2
Click "Submit your site for free." If you have a Yahoo! account, it will ask for your log-in. If you don't have an account, go ahead and register for your free Yahoo! account. Yahoo! requires registration to add URLs to the site, but this is free.
Step3
Find yourself at the Yahoo! Search Site Explorer page. You can choose to submit a website or web page URL or a site feed URL. You must use the "http" prefix before the URL.
Step4
Expect to get a message that your site will be "crawled." Yahoo! Slurp is a web crawler robot that uses data to build an index for Yahoo's search engine. Protected web pages that can't be crawled won't be included in the Yahoo! Search index.
Step5
Check on enrolling in a "sponsored search" if you want more traffic to your site. The fee-based sponsored search puts your web address near the top of the web page when someone searches. Otherwise, Yahoo! ranks sites according to relevance.
Step6
Submit a mobile site using xHTML, WML or cHTML for free as well at the "Suggest a site" link. This also requires Yahoo! registration. Video, audio and images can be submitted without cost at the "Submit media content" link.
Step7
Look into further Yahoo! submission options. Submit products to "Product Submit" at the Yahoo! Shopping site and travel offers to Yahoo! Travel Deals. Advertise your business by adding your site URL to Yahoo! Directory. Go to the Directory category page and click on the most appropriate category for your business. After suggesting your site to the right category, an editor will review your site for appropriateness.
