The sites listed in the Yahoo Directory are either paid listings or are sites that have been submitted or Yahoo has found that they deem to be worth listing.  This is different than the Yahoo search results due to the paid listings and the fact that the selection process is more selective.

However, when listed in order of 'importance', the criteria for determining 'importance' are very similar to those used for the search results.  Given that search engines use proprietary technology that is carefully protected, we can't know what all of these criteria are.  However, you can get a basic understanding by looking at Yahoo's Quality Guidelines (http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/deletions/deletions-05.html) and with a basic understanding of search engine optimization (SEO).  The best overview of SEO techniques currently available can be found here: www.seo-guy.com/tutorial.html.
