View Full Version : Yahoo Directory VS 8k Directory Submissions
05-24-2008, 03:59 PM
I've been having a serious dilemma trying to figure out how to spend my advertising budget. Like most people I haven't got a large budget so I am trying to figure out where to spend it to get the biggest impact. I found this company that will submit my website to 8,000 directories for $250, I tried it with 1,450 Directories on another website, but I am not getting a lot of traffic. Should I just spend the $299 to get this new website into the Yahoo Directory. What's your experience?

How many forums are you posting your question in just to link drop your signature?

I wanted some guy to register me with a shit load of forums so that I didn't have to waste my time doing it. I had him post a couple of questions so that I could see which forums actually have traffic.
cI plan on using the forums.

I think the manual submission service will probably work better than spending your entire budget on Yahoo. Although Yahoo is important I have found form personal experience that if you go for a manual but dedicated organic search engine optimisation concentrating on Google i.e forums, blogs, press releases and articles then chances are you will soon crawl to first page in Yahoo nevertheless. Surely ifyou can get to the top of Yahoo organic listings then paid listing will not be required.
We went for an all-out manual search engine optimisation campaign for our web design company's website. After about 7 months of work on it targeting keywords such Estate agents web design, Mortgage web design, etc. we have found that we are getting top rank and 5th form top rank for these two keywords in Yahoo without having to specifically target them.
