Yahoo searches subscription sites

Here’s one we at Arts Hub need to keep an eye on. One of the big problems running a paid subscription service is that so much of our content is ‘hiding’ behind a log in. And because of that, it is difficult for the search engines to index those pages. There are numerous tricks to try and alleviate the problem, some of which we use at Arts Hub.


But now Yahoo’s come up with a service which might offer more hope.


The Yahoo! Search Subscriptions service allows users to search multiple online subscription content sources and the web from a single search box.

I’ve filled out the form where publishers suggest their sites for inclusion on the Yahoo service. We’ll see if anyone calls!
