As the world's largest directory/portal and
generator of search related traffic,Guest Posting Yahoo! entertains
a wide range of localized sites and categories. Not
all of them require paid inclusion for business sites.
So if your site qualifies, you may want to sign up
under a regional category instead of paying $199 for
the mere chance of having your site reviewed.
You may even consider setting up a dedicated web site
under a foreign TLD (top level domain) in order to
achieve multiple entries in this prime traffic pusher.
(Take care not to merely clone your main site, however:
Yahoo!'s editors are well known not to take kindly to
that well worn strategy.)

But will it really effect search results? That's the
best part of it: it won't! The typical surfer doesn't
really care where a domain is listed within Yahoo!'s
vast, hard to fathom category structure. So getting
listed at all - anywhere! - is the only important
point.

Below you will find a list of localized Yahoo! URLs
and the TLDs you may want to sign up under to get
listed.

Note, however, that restrictions may apply: some TLD
registrars will only register commmercial sites with a
physical corporate presence in the country concerned.
You can check out all the world's TLDs and their
registrars at: < http://www.betterwhois.com >
