Stop looking for them and create your own. Write and submit articles and press releases to various directories that have high page rank. Make sure that you social bookmark every page on your website. Submit your site to directories (not just your home page, but also the other pages on your site - AKA deep linking).
There are other things you can do, but the above is enough to start with.
BTW - don't pay for the yahoo listing, it's not worth it. With proper SEO you don't have to worry about paying to be listed anywhere.
