I was wondering if anyone has a web design site listed in a regional section in Yahoo. I was wondering if this is worth the $199 to be listed if it generates much traffic. Also, do they allow you to be listed in a near by city? I am located in Washington, but I am about 5 minutes away from Portland, Oregon. I would probably get more traffic if I was listed in the Portland section than my city (which has about 50,000 people). Thanks for any advice.

It would be quite interesting to see what sitepoints statistics from yahoo would be, particularly wether it was worth the (from memory) $600 that they spent to have 3 sites listed in the yahoo directory... considering in all my searching at yahoo (not my primary search engine) i have only ever come across a mention of sitepoint when i actually searched for sitepoint... just to see where they were listed.

Yes. We have a Bed and Breakfast in Canyon, Texas and we were successful in gettng listed in Yahoo without having to pay the $200 but it did take some time and begging!
We have been unsuccessful in getting listed in local section for Amarillo (VERY nearby and larger town). I would love to be able to get listed in another town, but have not found the secret to that yet. If you find out how to do it let us know
