Yahoo! News Feed

Yahoo News Feed allows the news from your site to appear automatically in Yahoo Search Results as news items.

Official Yahoo information:

Display news information directly in Yahoo! Search. Add code to indicate to Yahoo! that a news story on your page, and when we next crawl your site, we'll take care of the rest. From your markup, we’ll be able to extract structured data from your site and render it automatically in an enhanced result in search results.

* Types of content permitted: news articles and opinion pieces with optional images.
* How soon after I add my markup will I see my enhanced result appear? Assuming your markup is correct, your enhanced result will appear after Yahoo! recrawls your page; this can take between a few days and a few weeks depending on your site.

Generated news feed is in NewsML1.2 format, as specified on Yahoo! Search Monkey develop page.

    telugu: my site installed in a sub folder, xml file is not created, shows 404 page, i have created a blank page and given permission 775 but not working at all

    Same with it. I have created empty yahoo-news.xml with 777 and re-saved options. After it, everything works fine.

    Thank you for plugin!

    Are you trying to use your mobile phone deals as yahoo news ?

  11. Dec 3rd, 2009 12:20 PM

    Try saving the options, that should trigger the file creation.

    Seems a very nice plugin.

    I've installed it right now, activated, but i'm also getting a 404 error, as the xml file does not created.
    My blog is installed at the root folder though. I'll check it out to see if i'm doing something wrong.

    Cheers!
