    Hi, thinking about registering my site in the Yahoo! directories. Is it worth the money. Thinking about yahoo rank, link juice to higher google PR and traffic.

    Anyone with experience?

    Hmm, I have purposely left a site to fall out of the Yahoo directory and haven't seen anything negative, however our clients all prefer to have an entry just because its like a trophy link

    If its an established or a proper site then I would use it, it just looks better if you ever want to sell the business in the future

    I personally don't use directory's much any-more, I prefer to spend that money elsewhere and gain better results

    I did invest in Yahoo paid directory inclusion many years ago. It was worth it and the results could be seen almost immediately (a week or so). Things have changed a lot since then.

    I don't invest in Yahoo directory anymore.. For the same amount, there are lots of high authority directories that offer to list your site. You can at the very least get listed in at least 4 such authority directories as compared to just one from yahoo.

    However, if I had some extra money to spare, I would opt in for Yahoo directory too, just for the sake of getting listed in Yahoo dir.

    Haven't invested in Yahoo directory ever just because I haven't read extraordinary positive feedback about the results. If I have spare funds, I'd do this for my business site just for the sake of listing in Yahoo dir though :D

    Suggest you invest your money in improving your rankings within Google. Yahoo is basically an after thought and I don't see the new CEO investing heavily into search technology.

    Why waste $299 on something that the providers can't guarantee (and won't refund) when you can go shopping here on BHW or rent a VPS with xrumer 7/sb/bmd/senuke etc? You'll be far better off NOT investing in a Yahoo dir submission!!

    I agree with the consensus...yahoo dir used to be effective but now there are many other authority sites. buy scrapebox and use it to do much more damage. Also BST can find some goodies.

    Put it this way, there's certainly no harm.
