You DO need to make a Yext Power Listings account, AND verify that account through email, and agree to the terms.
Yext Power Listings claims that even though it’s a free account, you will be in full control of your claimed Yahoo Business page. The results on the right are what you’re looking for. Click on “verify your listing,” right under the name of your business, where it asks “is this your business? Yahoo/Yext Power Listings will open, where it will send you to a “free business listing scan.” 5.
It hasn't published a timeline for the release in its official Yahoo Messenger FAQ, but you can sign up for updates to the in-progress program.
Yahoo is also switching up how it archives previous conversations.
Lots of information now needs to be filled out prior to seeing your scan with the new format.
Now when you finally get to the pricing schedule, you will find a new link, which is the solution to the Yext stranglehold on Yahoo business listings.
That is how we were able to fix our listing on Yahoo for free, without paying Yext. After you fill out Yext’s form – as though you’re signing up – you’ll see the link if you scroll down and squint: (Here’s that URL: https://com/pl/yahoo-claims/free-claim-checkout.html) Then you’ll see this screen: Now just “check out.” At this point, you should be done for the moment, and your edits should be under review by some combination of Yahoo / Yext people. You’ll immediately get an email from Yext, but it doesn’t appear to require any action on your part if you only want to fix Yahoo.
Nyagoslav tells me that Yahoo requires phone-verification before your edits go live. Have you tried the free-fix on your Yahoo listing yet?
You’d only pay to correct your Yahoo listing if your NAP OCD caused you to lie awake at night, bug-eyed and sweating into your pillow. Because it’s near-impossible to find, clearly it’s there by design, rather than as a loophole that’s just asking to be glued shut.
Any conversation histories you currently have (from using Messenger) are archived in Yahoo Mail, but they'll be going away on August 5 as well.
