    I know nothing about the yahoo directory I just heard its a good link to have for obvious seo reasons but what is this annual fee you have to pay $300 a year???

    I bought this domain for it's great backlink profile and never even knew about the directory listing ( a nice surprise to say the least)

    Question is is it worth renewing when it expires? For that kind of money I would rather buy more domains to be honest :/

    If it already has good link profile just let yahoo link fall off.

    Directory links are no where as near as good as they once were. Just let it fall off.

    For traffic purposes yes. They are useless. But because they are so old isn't that one of the reasons the link juice is good?

    I wouldn't renew it. You can do lots more on this forum with $ 300 ;)

    hahaha I'll take my chances with the listing if I'm choosing between that and the services here lately.

    Besides my purchases (which havent amounted to much for the money) a lot of what people are offering is overpriced and I'm sick of being part of a seller's mailing list that they sell to other marketers and then I get spammed.

    I haven't gotten spammed yet, but then again you've been around much longer than I.

    The very first service I bought off this forum was worth the $50+ I spent at the time. Since then the quality has degraded and the mailing list thing is a newer annoyance that I'm sure a lot of sellers don't do but once something like this pokes out its head there only tends to be more of it. This is a forum of marketers looking for new tactics to market after all ahahah...
