    Yes, it's possible for non commercial websites. I got one in a couple days back.

    Probably possible. But I've been trying for two years, and mine is a ".org" website that is 100% nonprofit. No success with Yahoo to date.

    I just resubmitted today, so here's hoping.

    One of my sites is the directory and I did it for free but that was many moons ago when it was free for everyone. I've never heard of anyone else getting in for free except for non-profit sites.

    I didn't think so until I got a site listed around about the same time as the recent Yahoo SERP update.

    Non-commercial sites usually get in within a week.

    It's a crap shoot for commercial sites unless you pay.

    For me, sadly, it hasn't seemed to work that way. DMOZ accepted my website very early on. But I've tried multiple times for the free, noncommercial acceptance into Yahoo, but still with no success.

    IMO if your website is based on a good concept, or maybe if you have the service that people will use, then its worth it :)

    definately worth it. Its $299 for a year and it is a quality and trusted directory and they list you in multiple categories. Often on PR5 pages.
