From that period i noticed that the sales of my site dropped quite a lot.
My pr stayed the same.
The ranking was not well monitorized, but the position of the pages
seems almost the same.

Re: yahoo directory affect google ranking?
1) Any loss of a link from a page with a PR will have some negative impact
on your positioning within google. How much really depends on the text that
was used withing the link itself. You say you have not noticed the loss on
google much anyway so maybe it has not affected you too much anyway.
2) Yes I think now Yahhoo need an anual payment to keep you on its directory
Maybe the loss of sales is due to the loss of your listing on Yahoo. If the
cost of your loss of sales exceeds the cost of the listing perhaps you
should pay to get it put back.
