I was told Yahoo may get your $299 without list your site. How do you make sure you $299 is well spent? Do they really bring you lots of traffic?

1: READ THE CONTRACT CAREFULLY, this will give you an idea of what theyare looking for.

2: keep in mind that as of yesterday (dec.28) they will now charge your credit card EVERY year.

3: You do not pay $299 for inclusion in the directory, you pay for them to LOOK at your site. There are no promises of inclusion.

IMO Yahoo is not the value it once was, with that said I also believe this behavior will eventually become the norm amoncst search engines and directories, thus the value will rise again eventually.

Thanks, Dave.

Directories may start charging, but search engines should still spider as many sites as possible and list them without charge. Even for a directory to be really useful, like a Yellow Page, they still should provide maximal listing with basic service free, and only charge for prominent ones.
