A death warrant from Yahoo?
From Nicholas on 16 January '98
(Damn these headlines are good...)

The "Suggest URL" button in the Business and
Economy category of Yahoo leads to an
entry form with the following ominous
statement:

"Use the official business name for the
title of a commercial site."

This would seem to be the kiss of death
for a listing if your company name doesn't
happen to describe your product.

What to do?
1. Add a comment to the description field,
and pray?
2. Get the company name off the site until
Yahoo has come and gone?
3. Just pray?

Or is there more to know about Yahoo?
Despite all the information on how search
engines think, I have little idea how
the Yahoo computer conducts a search within
its own database.
