I Just Paid for Submission to the Yahoo Directory

A lot of the SEO Gurus recommend submitting to the Yahoo Directory. The $299 fee isn't chump change unless it is going to make a real difference in my search rankings.

    Interesting, I never even thought about inclusion into the Yahoo! directory because of the high listing price, keep us updated about how you experience this! I am looking forward if it has any effect

    I can’t really see how Google could lend any weight to it at all. After all, they are now the paid links police. Isn’t paying for inclusion into the Yahoo Directory the same as buying a link?

    I paid for a listing a couple years back for an old tourism Website.

    It’s actually more than one strong link… You get a link in your respected category in all of Yahoo’s Country directories.

    Is it worth $299? hmm that’s debatable, but it’s certainly not a waste of money!

    Hi Josh,

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Did you notice any real difference in rankings? I’m very skeptical, but with everyone from Aaron Wall to Dan Thies recommending it, I figured it was worth a try.

    I’ve documented the positions on 30 of my keywords. I don’t plan to do any SEO work on the site for the next month. I want to see if the Yahoo Directory Submission has any effect and just how much. I’ll keep you posted.

    I honestly don’t remember. It was nearly 3 years ago. The site does rank well and has for some time, but not sure how the Yahoo listing impacted that in the beginning.

    Really the only thing I remember is that is accounted for quite a few solid links. This was back when toolbar PR was more accurate than it is today and I believe a good majority of those pages were 5’s and 6’s. WIsh I could be more helpful 🙂

    I am really curious to see how this turns out. i have always thought it would be a waste. I am subscribing to your feed now so I dont miss the result.

    Thanks for subscribing Dmitry.

    I just got confirmation that my directory submission was accepted yesterday. I’ll be posting more this afternoon.
