    I love to read that page over and over so that one day i'll remember it perfectly but something made me scratch my head and its that:
    if you look at the google ranking factor #83 which is:

    HOT - 83 - Site listed in yahoo directory ? - Big boost you can get in by paying...
    SEMrush
    So it means that the yahoo web directory plays on google algorithm? how ?
    thanks for any comments :p:p

    I would guess that plays on the whole backlink thing and Yahoo is a reliable source. Who Knows? Interesting though.

    from experience i can say it definately helps boost yahoo rankings for the anchor text you use in the directory listing. Google likes 'authority' links a lot more nowadays and i would imagine it sees yahoo as an authority

    If this would be the case it could mean a major boost to Yahoo. Would like to see more evidence about this.

    Well it won't hurt you. I do not see why it would not help you either.

    i think its the same with me, i'll try everything possible to get it inside free. I'll forget about my google ads for about 1 month the time they review the site and once it's inside i'll put my google ads back on my site.
