After Google search, the next 2 most popular search engines are Yahoo and MSN live search. Both search engines have dedicated users i.e. some of the users vow to use only either Yahoo or MSN live search. They would not even think of using Google. Since both sites are search engines, they would have search eniges bots to crawl your blog. It is imperative to submit your URL to both Yahoo and MSN live search
Submit Your Blog URL to Yahoo
At the submission page, you can submit your blog and/or submit your blog feed. You have to click on the arrow so that it can expand to show you the submission text box. Also, click on the arrow to revel the text box of the submit your blog feed.
Submit Your Blog To MSN Live (Now BING)
On the submission page MSN just requires you to submit URL and to enter a captcha. The captcha is a 5 letters word and it is legible. I dislike doing captcha because at times the letters are barely legible. After submission, MSN live search tells you that it indexes pages that it accepts pages that meets it standards. You should be patient and check periodically.
I prefer the Google’s submission to these two because you can write a summary about your site using your keywords. But since Yahoo and MSN live submission are free, I will take advanced of it.
