Having only submitted this site to Yahoo Site Explorer last week I was surprised to find some nice extra features which I hadn’t expected today.
Here’s a screenshot of the stats for www.seoptimise.com:
Just in case anyone else has taken as long as me, and perhaps didn’t see the point in submitting to Yahoo Site Explorer, here are 5 good reasons why you should authenticate your site:
1) Language information
Make sure Yahoo! knows the correct language of your website.
2) Last crawl date
When viewing your own site’s page’s you are listed with a date/time stamp for when each page was last crawled.
View the different subdomains Yahoo have indexed for your website.
4) Getting a new site indexed
For websites having problems with getting indexed in Yahoo! submiting to Yahoo Site Explorer can help to speed up the process.
5) Submit a site feed
Make sure Yahoo! finds your latest blog posts quickly by submitting your RSS site feed.
