I am doing SEO for my website, and I recently found yahoo directory. It is possible to submit website for free or to order expedited review for $299. So I have some question:
1) How much time will it take to review my website if I select free submission?
2) Will they 100% approve my website in case I order expedited submission or they just guarantee that it will be reviewed, not approved?
3) Will appearing in Yahoo directory give me a good impact in Google and Yahoo?
Thanks in advance!

The short answer, in my view, is don't bother with this. A waste of time and money.
If you focus on creating good content and then getting a few initial links (e.g. by answering questions online, commenting in blogs where relevant, press releases etc.) then the Google crawlers will find you soon enough if they haven't already.
Also you should definitely register your site with, and use, Google Webmaster Tools (https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/home?hl=en) and get to understand that (including sitemap submissions etc.) properly. That would be far more valuable than any directory submissions.

I would agree with Ashley. Moreover, you should know the basics of SEO, SMO and other general online marketing strategies and which strategies work best before you pay for any SEO promotion. Just knowing the basics could save you from paying for some stuffs that may not be necessary for your site.
