I found Yahoo to be the most difficult to get listed in when I was adding my company's new website to Search Engines. The others were very quick, but I had to submit to Yahoo several times over several months before it got added. I had read that that was typical. It was difficult to explain to my boss why it wasn't listed sooner. I was so relieved when I finally got an email from Yahoo saying it was listed.
One article I read pointed out that Yahoo is not a Search Engine, but a Search Directory. Their directory structure is very important when listing a website. I believe they check all submissions and that they receive tons of them, so it takes time to go through them all.
Some of the other Search Engines I submitted to added my site right away! So, they must have a simplier setup and possibly less submissions...
