Is it possible to have more than one listing in yahoo directory.

I was lucky enough to get a free listing but it's in a bad category and not very relevant. Can I do the 299 submit and get a second listing? Is it possible that I could endanger my free listing by doing this?

Hi Ifgoal

was your listing in the non-commercial section?

You can refer their help section, its very well made and it has got all the answers.

You cannot have 2 listings in yahoo directory. And for the category, it depends on editors.

You cannot have 2 listings in yahoo directory.

That is incorrect. There are many many examples of domains with multiple listings.

You won't endanger you existing listing.

I concur- it is most definitely possible to have more than one listing in the directory.

As a quick check, just search the Yahoo directory for yahoo.com. Almost 8,000 listings! :) Even google.com has 75 listings.

Nope- I don't mean paid listings. I seriously doubt Google gave money to Yahoo to get listed. :)

I also have an, um, "friend" whose site has multiple listings. Although they are from several years ago, before the non-commercial requirements and all the paid inclusion stuff.

Well, as a matter off interest, what is a commercial site?

Must it be without adsense, ypn or affiliate links?

what is a commercial site?

Basically, if you're selling something, they'll probably consider it commercial. It's it's 99% information with an affiliate link, it'll probably fly as non-commercial. If it's a paragraph of generic text with 3 AdSense blocks and a dozen affiliate banners, it probably won't fly.

It probably won't get accepted either. Quality directories are not really interested in MFA sites.
