I declined to spend another $299 this year for Yahoo directory links and my listing expired in October. I have noticed all the links are still in the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, and India directories though. How long does it take for these to be deleted when a listing expires? Also, I have definitely noticed a drop in traffic from Yahoo Search (not directory) in the last two months, so of course I am wondering if paying for the directory links pushed your site up in search a bit. Has anyone else seen this effect?
