Yahoo! Directory Listings Last Longer Then a Year

It has been a long time since we mentioned anything about the Yahoo! Directory let alone any directory. I found this nice thread at HighRankings forum named Quit Yahoo Directory - Still Listed which shows that even if you do not renew your Yahoo! Directory listing, after the year is up, you can still continue to be listed.

One member reported;

I stopped paying long back..much over a year...maybe 2 years by now...still not been removed from the directory.....I also sent 2 requests to be removed.

Jill Whalen adds that it is "great when they remove them though, because then the lousy directory description doesn't show in the organic results any more!"

Yahoo has been like this for some time, even back to 2001 as I remember. They would never charge for another year to be listed in the directory. $299 is really a lifetime listing fee, not yearly. Getting delisted was another situation though.
