    I recently discovered that the Yahoo Local listing for my business is outdated. If I click on the link to claim and verify my listing, it takes me to Yext, which tries to sell me a service called "PowerListings" that'll allow me to manage my Yahoo listing in addition to many other listings through them.

    Is there a way to claim and modify my Yahoo listing without signing up for this service? It looks like I'll have to spent at least $450 a year if I do it through them, which is a total fucking scam, especially if all I care about is the Yahoo listing and can take care of all the others manually.

    Don't bother, yahoo local has been spammed the fuck up and is useless.

    But isn't having consistent and accurate local listings important for ranking better in general/everywhere? I don't expect to get any significant business from Yahoo anyway so I'm not too concerned with it being a spammy mess.

    It's not worth $495, that's for sure.
    You can get a bunch if citations built for cheap, just skip yahoo. I rank 1st page on google without yahoo listing.
