I manage a small online catalogue/store for a local retailer. I plan to submit to the yahoo directory, but I want to be included in the local area directory in yahoo as well. Can you submit to both categories?
Yes you can get listed in both but you would probably end up with paying for both, sometimes it's easier to get in to the regional category for free.
I don't know if you just deliver your products, or offer them within a specific region if so it might be valuable to be in a specific region category otherwise i would go for the "Theme category" that your site handles, if you chose to go with the "theme category" also add details in which regional category you would like to be listed in.
