    A friend of mine was talking about directories...and Yahoo popped up.

    But they want a lot of money to be included in their directory.

    Is it really worth $300 yearly for the Yahoo Directory

    They are listing as it's a PR9 Directory but not sure if that money could be better spent elsewhere.

    What's the scoop?

    It's pretty strange but I have met quite a few people that have gotten a good bump up from a YD listing. I think it still holds some strength since it is a quality listing.

    Just keep in mind that if you get rejected they WILL NOT refund the money. So make sure your site seems legit and has a good UI.

    Yahoo dir is a good link.
    You get more than 1 link since they are distributing the listing on all countries they support(CA,AU,etc, etc).
    Also a small hint for you - All of my listings are 1 time fee. Just make sure that the credit card you are using is not valid after 1 year. No one will remove your listing. I am seeing even dropped domains that are still in the directory.

    Regards

    The question you should ask yourself, is with $300 couldn't I purchase tons of services / fiverr gigs and will they have a better effect ?

    I think they would.

    Only use it as a last resort, to give the site a final push up the ranks if all esle has failed. Also, check if competitor's have it.

    I think you must buy the link from yahoo directory, because its worth and also continue the other link building too.

    Make sure you must work on the quality of the site before submitting in yahoo directory


    tks

    Thanks CS

    I guess you could do that with a debit card...and then throw it away. Not sure how you would submit more tha one site at a time though.
