We have a site that needs a big link juice boost to assist the content being indexed ( with dynamic site maps ) and ranking. It's been suggested that a listing in the Yahoo Directory will do this.
I'm sceptical. We used to use Yahoo years ago and dropped it , but i didn't use it for this purpose.
Even though Google TBPR is a poor metric , I still look at it to give me a sense of the IBL / link juice power , and what we're looking at is no more than a PR4-5 for that section of the Yahoo directory. To push 45,000 pages i feel we need a PR 7 link.
But am I off the mark. Has the Yahoo directory got that much authority that the link juice will flow and benefit the site. The site is already TBPR5-6
