    Presence in search engines is not quite automatic although it may appear to be sometimes.<BR><BR>How to get in a search engine:<BR><BR>1) Submit your site manually - using meta tags will help your submission to be successfull.<BR><BR>2) Be spidered!<BR><BR>Search engines &#039;spider&#039; the web by following every link on every page and cataloging the contents of each page they find. If no one is linking to your page and you don&#039;t manually submit then you will never find yourself in any search engines!

    Did you submit the site to Yahoo?<BR><BR><BR>Meta tags don&#039;t do anything if the search engines never come across your site. Besides, I don&#039;t think yahoo looks at meta tags. Other serach engines do however.
