why would yell.com crawl when they only accept paid sugested listings? Not only web sites but business listing in general?

Yahoo - 3,9%
*Numbers include (Kvasir/Eniro/SOL).

From five years of running search engines, I don't think that any small, country level search engine can survive purely as a search play. Most have to have an associated directory. The technical costs of running a search engine are lower but the marketing costs are probably even higher now.
Just on the Scottish search engine side of things, it would be possible to build a Scottish search engine, but the above search hybrid idea would apply. At least with a Scottish search engine, the Gaelic  is understandable even if the accent is a bit strange. :)
 Irish Gaelic and Scottish Gaelic are two flavours of the same language.

albert, where did you get these numbers from? I can't really confirm them as Google is more in the 85% and Yahoo! in the 5% area.
