Can You Have Multiple Listings in the Yahoo Directory Comprised of Subdirectories of the Root Domain?

Does anyone know if you're allowed to have multiple listings in Yahoo directory? I know you can't have the same URL twice but what about this...


I didn't think it was allowed but I have come across a website that has about 9 listings. One listing for the root URL and 8 listings of additional pages.

At least back in the old days, Yahoo had a rule against multiple listings. At the same time, they also would sometimes accept additional submissions -- I think it depended upon which human reviewer you happened to get and how careful they were.

So, I think it's possible, but hard to achieve. I think it's technically against their rules.

Thanks for the reply. The website in mention has recently had the the subpages added and they're paid. Maybe I will give it a shot.
