    So I run my competitors through Majestic SEO to crawl their backlinks, and for example; one company shows:

    I also see them listed in DMOZ and Business.com. I'm only listed in BOTW; pending Business.com, trying for dmoz and was considering Yahoo.

    But back to the subject @ hand; why do they have a USA, Canada, India, looks like AU listing, etc? Did they pay $ X $299 for inclusion per dir, or do you just submit once and it shoots your link throughout?

    Maybe someone who has yahoo directory can comment on the subject.

    I can't remember how long ago it was, but I'm pretty sure yahoo dir used to be free. I've got multiple listings there and sure didn't pay for them
