It official Yahoo has dropped Google and will be using Inktomi's results to power their directory.
Previously when you did a search at Yahoo the top sponsor ads are from Overture and the bulk "free listing" ads were supplied by Google.
A few months back Yahoo purchased Inktomi as well as Overture and the online community was just waiting for the day that Yahoo would power all it's results in house.
That day is here...
Inktomi is a paid inclusion service. What this means is that you pay for each page you want included in the search engines.
Currently Inktomi powers MSN, About.com, HotBot, numerous other search engines and now Yahoo.
The submission charges are $39US for the first page and $25US for each additional page. This price covers your pages for a full year. This is a huge savings over going direct to Yahoo for $199 to $399 with no guarantee of any type of inclusion in their directory.
Your pages are guaranteed to be refreshed every 48 hours and included in all the engines powered by Inktomi.
Please keep in mind that this does not guarantee a certain rank within the search engines. This is why you only submit your best optimized pages.
To take advantage of this golden opportunity do the following:
1. Choose your best keyword optimized page or pages.
2. Go to http://www.All-Paid-Inclusions.com and set up your paid inclusion account.
3. Choose to submit to Inktomi and follow the step by step instructions.
4. Within the next 2 days log back into your paid inclusion account and verify that your pages are marked as "refreshed"
5. Check your rank in the various search engines for your optimized keywords
6. Tweak pages every 48 hours to get your desired results.
You now can cash in on the explosion of traffic from Yahoo within the next 48 hours.
No one knows how long this window of opportunity will last.
The opinion among search engine experts and those in the know is that Yahoo will raise the prices of Inktomi inclusions drastically and without warning.
If you use pay per clicks you may remember when Overture did this. At the time clicks were .05 minimum and they sent a notice stating effective immediately the minimum bid is .10 per click.
So don't wait around get your pages in now at the lower price. You can tweak them later.
