|Registering with Yahoo!|
The Yahoo! directory is organized by subject. Most sites in it are suggested to Yahoo by users. These websites are placed in categories by Yahoo! Surfers, who visit and evaluate these suggestions, decide where they best belong. Yahoo does this to ensure that the directory is organized in the best possible way, making the directory easy to use, intuitive, helpful, and fair to everyone. So how do you submit your Decentrix website? Yahoo states:
With this in mind, we ask that you follow three simple, yet important steps if you have a site (URL) you'd like to suggest:
|Step 1: Check to See if Your Site is Already in Yahoo! |
An important first step, because if your site is already listed in Yahoo!, you need go no further. Check by searching Yahoo! for your site by title, or by browsing appropriate categories.
(Note: If your site is already listed in Yahoo! but you want to change its comments, title, and/or placement, you need to use the change form. This is an entirely different process.)
|Step 2: Find the Appropriate Category in Yahoo! |
Finding an appropriate category for your site is at the heart of this process. Remember that Yahoo! Surfers visit each site suggested to us, and proper categorization on your part helps us process suggestions quickly.

If you are suggesting a scheduled one-time or recurring topical chat, or live audio or video broadcast, please submit directly to Yahoo! Events.
For sites accessible through mobile devices, sites for our Yahooligans! directory, and sites in Chinese, Danish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish or Swedish, please visit the appropriate Yahoo! property or service. Sites that are in a foreign language represented by our international directories will not be added to Yahoo!.
|Step 3. Suggest Your Site From the Appropriate Category |
Suggest your site from the category you think most appropriate. Do this by clicking on the "Suggest a Site" link at the bottom of that category page. (It's just to the right of the copyright and the "Company Information" link.) Again, there is a list of important pointers to help you establish where your site belongs. Also remember that the final placement of your site is determined by Yahoo! Surfers.
When you click on "Suggest a Site" in the appropriate category, you'll see an online form asking for information about your site. (If you are suggesting your business site somewhere within our main commercial categories, you will see a link to the fee-based Yahoo! Express submission process -- required for commercial sites. For more information about Yahoo! Express, please read our FAQ. To suggest a site through Yahoo! Express, click here.)
In the "category" space on the form, you'll see the name of the category you've chosen. Please be prepared to provide, among other information, your site's title, URL, and a brief description.
Finally, thanks for the site. Thanks for contributing to Yahoo!. By following the above steps (in order, no less!) you're helping us process sites in a timely manner.
