Thank you for the insightful response. Interesting that Google likes a paid link in the Yahoo directory (of all places) where as they frown on purchased links elsewhere.
No problem, Steve. Regarding Google, it places great value in a link from Yahoo`s directory for four reasons:
1. Yahoo`s Popularity. Yahoo is the most popular website on the Internet, attracting millions of visitors every day.
2. Inbound Links. Yahoo has tens of thousands of inbound links.
3. Age. Yahoo has been around since 1995. Google places a great premium on older domains.
4. PageRank. Yahoo has an ultra-impressive PR of 9. And since Google invented PR, it places great importance on sites that have a high PR.
I hope that clarifies things for you.
