Must provide either a business web site or detailed information about the business. You can provide both a web site and information about your business.
The web site for the listing, if any, must be in the English language with the official business name visible to any visitor to that site.
The web site for the listing, if any, must not contain any content, products, services or other information that, in Yahoo!'s reasonable determination may be illegal to sell under any applicable law, statute, ordinance or regulation, that may infringe or violate anyone's rights, or that, Yahoo! believes, in its sole discretion, is inflammatory, offensive, or otherwise inconsistent with the spirit of the Service.
These criteria are minimum requirements only, and Yahoo!, in its sole discretion, may consider other criteria before accepting the submission.
