In Yahoo, we are ranking #3 to #4 but the result is always our directory listing that is not that informative.
My question is would we rank higher in Yahoo if we dropped the directory listing and just went with the natural results?
We need feedback from more people.
Guys just last week I paid 299 hoping to rank higher in Yahoo and in other search engines. We are a new portal on a particular broad subject and got linked from a directory page with some great sites that has a PR 7.
I was hoping that paying 299 would increase our ranking overall, but here I hear something else.
I can't drop it, since I just started last week, I guess I will try for a year and see what will happen.
Two weeks back I noticed Yahoo SERPs showing page Title and Meta Description for a day or two and that day I was one level up i.e., 4th postion.
I am thinking to modify the description in Yahoo Directory, but worried will this make a bad effect on my SERPs.
Has anyone over here have modified Directory Listing for their site, if yes, please share your experience.
Seems that's really a boost to be in directory but if I loose my keywords... I don't care to be first only on my site title even if I'm very very first lol
I paid for a yahoo directory listing for a site that enjoyed good rankings. Now, within 2 days of the listing going up, that site is nowhere to be seen in yahoo. It goes without saying that I would never give yahoo a dime again.
The Yahoo directory is virtually useless as it gets almost no traffic. If you want to buy links, you can get anywhere from 30 to 50 links from indepedent sites/directories for the price of one usless and perhaps dangerous link from Yahoo.
Don't just walk away from the Yahoo Dir, run.
