As part of my ongoing efforts to understand search engines...I'm wondering if being in the Yahoo Directory is worth the cost of admission.
Everyone seems to agree that having inbound links to your site is a necessity. If you're a Google fan, you'll also want those inbound links to be from a site or page with high pagerank.
A lot of Yahoo Directory pages have a high pagerank. Other search engines that don't go by pagerank may consider the source of the inbound link. Does having a link in Yahoo's Directory give that link more "clout" than a link from elsewhere?
I've read (in this forum) that sites that are listed in the Yahoo Directory MAY be more stable in their positions in Yahoo Search.
So, does it make sense to buy a listing in the Yahoo Directory?
Just wondering your perspectives on this issue.
