    I recent signed up with linkdelete to help clean up my profile. They recently sent me a file of what they say are my worst links to review and have them start to remove.

    Per their report, dir.yahoo was listed as my worst link. Can this be correct? I know this was a paid directory listing, but this is as legitimate site as possible. If this is true then any paid directory listing can not be OK

    Also, my own blogger blog links were listed. This is all unique content so I assume it is just anchor text problems.


    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Do you use GWMT? Did you get warning from Google about unnatural links? Why are paying to Linkdelete when you could use disavow tool?

    Yahoo Directory link is fine, Matt Cutts even says so in some of his webmaster videos.

    I would not also be bothered about Yahoo Dir. If you placed the link in the right category, then I think it's fine.
