    I've got one site in the Yahoo directory and one in Dmoz and they have similar links and content.
    The one in Dmoz is much much higher in the serps

    I have several sites grandfathered into the Directory from way back when. I get a trickle of traffic. So from that perspective the answer is NO. The only real benefit seems to be Google Specific SEO boosting. But you can certainly do that without Yahoo.

    Google loves to see yahoos business directory as its an extra regulator for them. If your trying to index something then make sure its not porn or gambling.

    I don't think 300 is worth it for the yahoo listing. One, even if you do have a better ranking in yahoo, it does not get near the traffic google does. Two, DMOZ is free and probably the best place to start before forking out 300 with no guarantee.

    I have a commercial site that falls in and out of yahoo SERPS. It is not listed on the yahoo directory. Will it be worth it to pay the $299/annually?

    I do not think that price is not fair. You should search on net and from the market for more details

    $300 for a link on a page with 5 more links. Not worth at all IMO.

    i would say it's not worth it at all. For what your paying you not getting much. You can achieve all this without paying that much money.

    Personally I don't think its worth it. I'd rather spend $300 in YSM and actually make a return on my investment.
