Yahoo! seems to have shut down the Ping service :(
http://developer.yahoo.com/search/siteexplorer/V1/ping.html

As of Yandex, you need to have the site added to your sitemap listed with Yandex first. Enither by adding it to your webmaster console or by listing in robots.txt
I’m not able however to find any official info from Yandex on how to send sitemaps to them, so no pomises on how well it will work :(

Note that you can also add other search engines ping URLs, if you know them.

Ah, that’s a shame about Yahoo but I’m not concerned about Yandex.
Thank you for getting back to me so quickly!

Has Yahoo support been reinstated? I see it’s still listed (jan 2012) in the module information.
If not, it should be removed from documentation…

Nope, it does not work :(
I’ll remove it so it wouldn’t cause confusion - thanks for putting my attention to it!
