Overture now offers the Yahoo Search Inclusion under its own branded name –Site Match™.
According to the page info from Overture
Submitting your site to individual search engines is expensive and time-consuming. But with Site Match you can reach millions of users by submitting your pages through one program that powers search results for top web portals such as Yahoo!, AltaVista, AlltheWeb and other sites.
Summary of Site Match Benefits (according to Overture):
More exposure for your site – reach more than 75% of active internet users
A simple, single point of submission to multiple web portals such as Yahoo!, AltaVista and AlltheWeb
Frequent refresh of your pages – every 48 hours
Daily reporting to track and optimize performance
Pricing – Hybrid of Inclusion and Pay-Per-Click
Site Match uses a hybrid of the old Inktomi paid inclusion program and the pay-per-click search listings. When you start a Site Match subscription, a non-refundable annual review fee is charged for setting up your account and for quality review of your pages. Once your pages are accepted into the program, a cost-per-click fee is charged for each lead driven to your site.
