Value of Yahoo Directory Listed website with PR 4??

Postby hcl_23 » Tue Jul 28, 2009 12:34 pm


I am planning to buy a website. The site is PR 4 and is listed in Yahoo directory. What should be the maximum amount that I need to pay?

Please advise.

There is definitely a value in having a domain that is included in the yahoo directory, since it is pay for inclusion. I am not sure if they will remove it if you do not keep paying.

As far as the value, I think that it ups it a bit, but nothing significant, since it can be removed at any time.

I am sure you would get a nice boost from being in there, but for how long?

The PR value may change anytime. Another thing to be considered is the age of the domain.

You should look at the RANKING of that site, not at its pagerank. Domain age and number of backlinks are another factors you need to consider.

I will suggest you to see the profitability of the website also. Page Ranks and SERPs are very perishable in nature. Today you have it, tomorrow it may be gone!
