SEORoundTable points to an interesting thread at
WebmasterWorld which asks how Yahoo! ranks sites within its directory.
By default, Directory site listings are presented sorted by popularity and
relevance. Sites that are most popular with users or the most relevant to the
category appear at the top of the site listings. The order of web sites or web
documents is based upon Yahoo! Search Technology. If the category is large, the
listings will display over multiple pages with pagination displayed at bottom of
Interesting stuff. If you've got a listing in the Yahoo! Directory and you're
looking for better placement, build more links and the Yahoo! Search Technology
will do the rest!
