Is guest book submission can rank higher in yahoo search engines if not what is correct method to bring up site in yahoo
any advice greatly appreciated
Guest book submissions sounds like oyu mean signing books just for the link?
If thats what you mean thats the most basic and oldest form of spam.
to get listed and ranked in yahoo or other search engiens it is required to get links from related sites.
signing in guestbooks doesnt bring any PR or any other benefit.
Well thank goodness that there is no benefit to spamming guestbooks. I had to turn my guestbook off because I was getting up to 20 entries per day! I, of course, deleted them so they never saw the light of day, and I wondered what in the world these people were getting out of clogging up my guestbook with their advertising (and lots of porn urls). Now I know that they thought it helped their rankings.
Now there are some jerks posting stupid little tidbits like "Oh yeah!" on our arts and crafts forum. Does this gain them anything if they don't leave a url? Just curious.

I think, though I'm not sure, that if you are using a "standard" guestbook that you are probably targeted by automated bots posting junk messages to see if your guestbook is "open" for spamming.Originally Posted by gigigib
I don't think they get anything useful out of the post or the link, other than perhaps a once in a blue moon visitor who might follow such a link. If there are many thousands of spammable pages then it might be worthwhile to them as it costs essentially nothing.
Thank goodness for image verification!
I think this does not promote your ranking as its spam
To say this has no effect is not right, if you spam 1000 guestbooks with one anchor you will see effects no doubt.
You may also get your isp pissed, 100 website owners pissed, and chucked from the G in their new system for getting 1000 irrelevent links in 2 days. But to say it wont help in MSN and yahoo is wrong, unless they have instituted the same boxing as the G, which last I checked they hadnt.
In the end it just will make you look tacky and spammy, so its not worth your energy nor risk.
And if yes, why are those programs not forbidden?
My guestbook entries certainly come from "people" that have never been on my site.
It is the same with my blogs, the spam messages lack a date, mine not. But it isn't so difficult to add an anti spam sentence in my self written blog I suppose, only I didn't do that yet.
