Q&A

Q1:If I want to offer quick access to other resources related to my page, can I link directly to a category listing in a Web directory, such as Yahoo! or the WWW Virtual Library?
A1: Sure, and many people do that. As always, you should email the Webmaster of any directory you link to and request permission.

Also, try not to get too specific; link at the most general point in a directory's hierarchy that pertains to your topic, and let the visitor navigate down to the specifics. Broad categories in directories are fairly stable and remain in place for years. Very specific directory listings low in the hierarchy might disappear or change names, invalidating any links to them.
