    It's not worth it, save your money :) Put the $300 into paid clicks or targeted advertising of any kind and you're investment will be far better spent.

    I don't think I would renew unless you have money to burn maybe and it's no big deal. Otherwise I'd save it. $299 just to get listed is too much.

    I don't think it's worth it. i would suggest using the money on a press release distribution service (like PRweb) because you'll get so many more quality backlinks and many times more link juice coming from you than from Yahoo's directory.

    I have seen websites with a yahoo listing do extremely well in yahoo serps...obviously they value their own directory, yahoo answers, flickr and yahoo buzz when figuring out relevancy for their algorithm. If you have a high traffic website I would suggest getting listed.

    Only if you have $299 to waste... in which case, I can send you a self addressed stamped envelope to put your money in. :)

    I have Link to a Page where you can Get Your Website URL into Yahoo Search Listing for free. I am afraid I cannot Share, I already Received an Infraction and that was for Masked Link.

    lol I added my Website for free in Google Search Engine

    I don't think it's worth it at all. I hardly EVER get visitors from Yahoo.
