Yahoo’s Site Explorer

Google is the most popular search engine right now, and it is the biggest target for folks wanting to get their blogs / sites up on the online net and have more people visit their site. One of the biggest factors for making a site or a blog successful is if you can get your site to appear in the first page of Google Search results.
In the midst of all this, we totally ignore the other search engines, including Yahoo Search. Yahoo search is not able to deliver the same kind of traffic as Google Search, but there are a fair number of people using Yahoo search, and the smart site owner will not neglect the promotion of their site / blog on Yahoo as well. Not too many people are aware of the tools used on Yahoo that help Webmasters.
The most important tool that can help is a tool called Yahoo Site Explorer (link). What does the tool do ?

Yahoo! Site Explorer is a tool that lets you access the information we have about a site’s online presence. You can see which sites and subpages are indexed by Yahoo! Search, track sites that link into webpage, and view the most popular pages from any site. Use Site Explorer to:

– Find which sites and subpages are indexed by Yahoo! Search!.
