Yahoo Paid Links

Currently my site gets 35% visitor links from other websites/search engines & 65% visitors from google

given that google is the daddy ff search engines, is it really worth paying to be included in Yahoo's directory ?

their bot takes just as much bandwith from my site as google does, yet i , of course, get just about zip from their serach engine as visitors

is yahoo search engine a worth while addition to my site if i have to pay $$ to be in there?

I dropped my Yahoo directory link after almost 6 years...I did notice a drop in traffic from Yahoo Search afterward but they kept the link in place and never pulled it from the directory
