Brett,
I have a similar problem. I "sell" computer related services(ie: word processing, proofreading, resume creation, etc.). I have heard that it's better to just submit one site to Yahoo. It seems like I remember someone saying(maybe from the tutorial here) that the reviewers check to see if there are any other sites by the same domain name and use that to decide how many of your sites to add. If you get any good info. on what to do in this situation, let me know. It's much easier to tailor a site for each individual product so that the site will be SE friendly than to try to put everything under one index page. But, I'm very new to this so I really don't know what to tell you. Either way, good luck!

Lisa
