Submitting sitemap to Yahoo & MSN

For Yahoo -

I went here
Code:
https://siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com/submit
and entered my feed in the second box and clicked on Submit Feed button. It took me to a page listing my feed.

The status shows "processed" but the "Last Submitted" and "Last Processed" fields are "-"

I even tried Resubmitting my feed by ticking that checbox against my feed and clicked on Resubmit button. Still the "Last Submitted" and "Last Processed" fields are "-"

What does it mean?

For MSN -

I went to
Code:
http://search.live.com/docs/submit.aspx
and submitted the Sitemap url of my site (say
Code:
http://mydomain.info/sitemap/
).

Is that right?

Hey thanks mate. My sitemap's url is of the form

Code:
http://mydomain.info/sitemap/
So i used
Code:
http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://bhavanikannan.info/sitemap/
and it says submission was not successful.

Should I need to use my feed as sitemap url then?

Please advise.

Go to the URL you provided above. If anything that is a HTML Sitemap and not the XML Sitemap required.

If you have a Wordpress blog, they have plugins to automatically make XML Sitemaps and your ping list will ping the search engines after each post. If you don't want to run a plugin, then go here and create a sitemap for free (under 500 pages). Upload it to the root of your domain and leave the file named "sitemap.xml" then submit that.

Good luck
