As we know, if your page listed in Yhaoo Directory, Yahoo returns Yahoo directory title and description instead of my title and description. Is it possible that I get back my own
title and description in Yahoo's SERP? Any response will be appreciated.

You can not change. Even there is no point in sending any request to yahoo guys.

I've tried many times to get Y! to change mine with no success. But then out of the blue, my title did change to my natural title in Yahoo serps for a few months, then changed back to the directory listing. Since the only site I could find in my market that had both a Y! directory listing and it's natural title tag also(like my site) had an active RSS feed, I thought that perhaps the RSS could override the directory title. But since my SERPs listing changed back to my directory listing I have not been able recreate the results.

After the inclusion to yahoo directory, descriptions in yahoo web serps are gone. In domains which linked in top-menu on that site happend same thing. I cannot find out if my site violates against yahoo Guidelines. Are there any way to bring back indexed pages with full descriptions as before?
