I submitted a site using the non-paying option for my category in the Yahoo program some days ago.
Now, I wonder if it will ever been seen/reviewed. Since they have the paid option, would they bother to review those submitted for free?
So, has anybody get a free Yahoo listing?

I dunno, never bothered to check to see if I had been listed.

Yahoo are just money grabbing so and so's, that's really made for big corporations with huge ad budgets. I don't think it was built with small businesses in mind. But it is a business example for us all, I'll give them that credit.

I've gotten a number of free Yahoo listings, several for pages I didn't even submit.

I have got two recently and several over the last couple of years. They do still look at them, so it is no harm to try.

I have a couple as well. It's actually quite surprising how quickly one can get a site listed compared to the ODP (I've yet to obtain a listing there). I don't know if it's because Yahoo has more editors, fewer spam submissions (which I doubt because you can submit much more often to Yahoo), less stringent requirements for submitted websites or what.

I have also been listed in the directory for 3-4 years, but baned in the search.

I got a free listing a couple years back. As for why they would bother to review those submitted for free, if Yahoo didn't this would mean that their directory would be one of commercial sites. No way could almost all worthwhile amateur sites afford $299 a year to get a listing in the Yahoo directory. Since I only rarely look for commercial sites, the Yahoo directory would be worthless to me. I'd stick solely with the ODP. Think of the amateur sites listed in the Yahoo directory as being a loss leader to get people to use the thing.
