I can list you 299 sites that ask only 10 bucks to be included in their directory. 10 dollars is not a lot of money for any business. Would you go for it?
It sounds like you see the Yahoo Directory a a quality paid link.
That is the only thing you get with Yahoo Directory.
The only reason you would do that is for Google ranking.
I am so disgusted with Yahoo, I have quit all pay per click advertising, quit paid submission and if I know knew that Google now longer valued a back link from Yahoo Directory I would drop that in a NY second.
The organic results in Yahoo are just bizarre and what ever method they use to filter for quality needs to be scrapped and completely redesigned from scratch.
Sorry if this sounds a little like a rant but I have been watching Yahoo organic search results getting worse with every algo update for two years.
sorry to get off tangent. thanks everyone for their thoughts on the matter. i think i might be staying away from yahoo directory if nothing is changed.
