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.

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?

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.
