Yahoo Directory UK/IE Shutting Down

October 19  |  Link Directories  |   Ryan Clark

Yahoo recently announced that the UK/IE section of their directory will be closing down come November 18th, 2010. While this directory has been going strong for a decade, Yahoo has given you users options. You can now handle submissions to the UK/IE section that is under the main Yahoo directory. While it should be linked off the main site, you’ll have to dig a little deeper to find the announcement.

You may continue to maintain your listing through the US based Directory Submit program. Your site will remain listed in the Directory as it is now, and the applicable annual fee will apply on your anniversary date. No further action on your behalf would be required.

I’m not sure if we’ll see further closures within the Yahoo Directory regions, or if this is a sign of the whole thing slowing down. While I don’t think these directories pass anywhere near the same amount of link juice as they once did, I’d still want to be linked under my region from a domain like this. DMOZ is still worth it if you can somehow get a link, but you pretty much need a magical wand to make that happen. If you want to get in on the discussion, you can find us in this Webmaster World thread.
