Does anyone have any opinions on what Yahoo's criteria is for good organic placement. They seem to be quite different than Google and MSN.
Thanks

Is Yahoo! even a search engine?? I thought they were only a directory, in which case searches would tend be much more literal. I could be wrong though. Heck, I probably am.

Does Yahoo! have anything similar to Google's Webmaster Tools perhaps? I tried doing a quick search and couldn't find anything about Yahoo! submission criteria. I just kept ending up at random posts on answers.yahoo.com that weren't very valuable everytime I searched.

Yes. They have Yahoo Site Explorer.

If you have got the keyword in your domain name and get few thousand links to your domain, you can rank good in Yahoo.

Thanks. How would you recommend the best way to get a few thousand links in a white hat manner fairly quickly?
