We finally got our site listed in the Yahoo directory about 2 weeks ago (free listing). My problem is that in the Yahoo search results it does not show that we are listed in the dir. (No directory under our listing)

Does anybody knows what can cause this?

I might add that we do not use the www in our site URL and have a 301 form our www version to our non-www version. We are listed in the directory with the www and in the search results without the www.

The directory listing may not show up within the search results page for a few weeks. This is normal.

Thanks Mark

I was just afraid it had something to do with the www and non-www thing.

While we are on the topic. Do you think a directory listing will help our Yahoo SERP ranking?
