    Hi,

    Does anyone know if a link in the Yahoo directory would help a sites PageRank? I ask this as i see that yahoo uses redirects for all the sites in its directory, so would it actually count as an inbound link? I also see it lists the URL of all the sites, but i didnt think google followed anything that wasnt an a href link, bar some stuff.

    Finally, does its help a sites PR to have a mention of your site URL in a site, even if it is not a link, such as the URL below the listings in Yahoo?

    Any help would be appreciated on this! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Yes, it helps a lot. A Yahoo link will get you into Google.

    Now to the next part. Why does it help?

    I thought google didnt follow redirects, and from what i can see Yahoos database consists only fo redirects. :confused:
