URL in Yahoo Directory but does not show in Yahoo Search

Any input here would be appreciated....
Our url is part of the Yahoo Directory and has been
for several years. However when doing a Search the Web
for www.widgets.com in the Yahoo Search we are no where
to be found. There are plenty of results that come back but not us. I would think our Home page should show up first. Nothing from our site shows up. Only links to us. Our Site Map is first page that is listed from our Site and that is #33. This has been like this for several months. Has anyone else experienced this and how did you correct it.
Thanks for any help.

Are you sure you were checking in the acutal directory, and not Google? If so, sticky me your URL and I'll take a look.

This happened to me before and it was some kind of bug in their system - the site wouldn't show up in the SERP, only when I did a category search.

I have the same thing happen. My site is on Yahoo, but was dropped from Google for no apparent reason (a perfectly whitehat site). So the site doesn't appear in Yahoo serps, which are powered by Google but shows in the index.

Thanks for the reply. Have you made any progress in
Google. We are starting to show some signs of life in Google so maybe soon Yahoo will recognize us as a site
that is in their directory. It appears that Yahoo
relies on Google more so than their own information.
