Submitting to Yahoo directory

Hi Everyone

I have seen a number of SEO experts and affiliate marketers recommend submitting your site to the yahoo directory. It costs 300 dollars, so my question is - has anyone had done it? and did they find worth out of it??

Cheers

Hi Rivihe,

I was about to submit but then acceptance is not guaranteed even when you pay and the payment is non-refundable.

If I am going to pay out such an amount, I would want to have a sure listing instead of just a priority review. I would rather invest the money in something that gives me more value.

Google's Webmaster Guidelines actually said that the Yahoo directory is a good inlink. It could help increase your ranking but there are plenty of free directories that could help you improve your ranking as well. You might also want to see the discussion on this thread: Listed in the Yahoo Directory - Why is it so important?

I think there are cheaper services out there. Also even with a paid submission, it might take a week or two for them to approve.
