    Hello, anyone have insight on if it would be effective to 301 a domain listed in yahoo directory to your money site? The reason I ask is because I'm kicking the ass of the sites ahead of me in ranking in terms of quantity and quality of backlinks. The one differentiators is that they are listed in the yahoo directory.

    Pretty sure having your main URL listed in DMOZ and Yahoo Directory is what helps. 301 may pass along some of the juice but wont be the same as a backlink coming from those domains.

    It does not work. You may see a temporary improvement in SERPS but that will not last.
