    Yahoo listing

    Damn I cannot believe Yahoo charge US$299.00 for a guaranteed and expedited consideration of your site.

    And that its a recurring annual fee!

    Damn I wasnlt expecting this much.

    is it worth it? I was considering adding www.atlargenutrition.com ?

    For an ecommerce site it is usually worth it.

    The annoying thing is that you may not even get listed. It could be $299 for nothing. Hard decision.

    Yahoo is pretty fair at accepting quality sites in my opinion.

    Cloughie, you shouldn't have any worries about getting AtLargeNutrition accepted.

    Just make sure that your network and server are rock-solid before you submit. I've heard horror stories about peoples' servers going down when Yahoo is trying to review a site: POOF! $299 down the drain!

    Either way I am going to hold out right now. We have spent money elsewhere and I cannot really justify 300 bucks right now. Soon though……

    Depends on the PR of the cat you're trying for aswell. And also the number of links already there.

    Yahoo is $300 per year, but if you break it down that is only $25/month and if it brings you good traffic that could be well worth it.

    $25 a month is a lot! Is the traffic you get from it really that good? I thought it was pretty poor and the only real benefit was the PR boost.

    It could well be worth it yes, but right now I we have invested in other promotion areas so I can't really justify the amount.

    Soon though

    its probally best to invest 300 into adwords right now build up customers than you would have extra money to expand to other area's. Once they try your product im sure they will stick to it.
