Yahoo Directory not in Google cache - Still worth it?

I was planning to add one of my sites to the Yahoo Directory.

The relavent category is pretty deep, eg:

Directory > Regional > Countries > United Kingdom > Business and Economy > Shopping and Services > Health > Vision > Eyewear > Sunglasses

Google does not have this page in its cache, so I presume it wont help pass any trust?

The site already ranks well in Yahoo, but Google dominates UK searches so if it can't even see it, I presume it would be a waste of $299.

everything in Yahoo passes - evenutally it passes. Give it some time.

Also, go find some 3rd party sites and submit that category to them.
Create a blog and link to the category. Once Google sees a few links - it will pop up in organic results.

Osagie Irowa here. Save your $299. Create a few Google blogs with some pages and just link back to your main website site using relevant anchor text.

Research 6 relevant keywords/keyphrases for your business and then create 3 blogs focusing on 2 keywords/keyphrases on each blog. Link each blog and then point them directly to your site. Watch your organic web rankings explode. regards, "gabriel" osagie irowa

You need PR 17 for G to get down that deep :) IMO, it is nto worth $299 a year at all.

I went into the Yahoo directory in quite a shallow directory, currently on PR3... You know how much difference it made to my serps?... f#[* all... and I get maybe one referral from that link per month.

I made the mistake of paying Y for a directory inclusion many years ago. When they took over Overture they demanded 30c a click for all future clicks from the SERPs - I declined - and that site (clean, completely non-spammy, no.1 in G for years for my chosen keyphrase) has never since had a single click from Y although it is still listed in the directory. We have a saying in the UK, over 100 years old but still true - whoever pays the Danegeld will never get rid of the Dane.
