This is sort of oftopic, but I must speak.
Tried to be quiet, waiting patiently.
I am an normal person with one website, that started business for 2 years ago, not expecting the success we have now, launched it, just to try to launch an business not to work on the street.
Actually, we (me and my sister in law after one year made an legal company, trying to earn money to live, to feed our kids, not afiliated, an real company, one thats brings the cleaner and put welcome pack to our guests......)Lot of work, not much money, but I am working from home with my kids.
Really what hurts me more than the money I am loosing, is my person, that for 4 months is playing sherlock Holmes, smoking 2 packets of cigarretes per day, forgetting my family, only thinking about my problem with Yahoo.
forgetting all this.
What I see in here, many seems to think everybody that posts here are SEOs with big bank accounts, and big spammers.
And really I am afraid of saying what I am thinking, maybe could be bad for me, thatīs awful thoughts, to get quality everybody should say what they think, not waiting for somebody else to say it.
My story, i have an old Inktomi penalty (but nobody from yahoo ever said I have, they said in e-mails my site been blocked, proberbly due reasons I said in my apealing) .......and that they apreciated my effort of improving my site, most sites donīt change anything, they just apeal.......
Well In my apealing I told that when I launched my site, I submitted where I could.......even an linkfarm, I was nowhere to be found...that was back in 2002, I read a lot about launching sites, and back in 2002 nobody seemed to think that was bad.
And was very happy to see 25 visitors a day, from diferent sites, even from this linkfarm, and many months later was included in google, we started to go into business.
So in my apealing I told the truth, I hate lies, on top of money is my honor....
I did participate in one linkfarm when launching my site, though didnīt know was bad, just to get hits.... but when understood was bad, more than a year ago, I took away my link to this website.
well, 1/4 Tim said publically that my site was in serp if I havnīt checked for some days,
I answered: no I am not, several hours later Tim edited his post saying: your site has been reviewed just be patient, you will be in serps soon. To me means he checked it....
This is the thread: [webmasterworld.com...]
Well about 15 days later, Tim answered another thread of mine, saying if I want another review........clean up your site, and when done, I will have somebody to review it...........
I just canīt think he lied to me intencionally just to be favoured in this forum........... or to silence me.
I just canīt believe anybody can be that bad, that evil,
so I must think there is some other problem with my site, some issue,........or maybe the person that reviewed it forgot to push the button: admit? Of course, no company admit these issues,.
So therefore I am playing Sherlock Holmes all day, trying to found the problem in Yahoo, even asking sites to deleate my listing in their directory.
As an human, just pissed of.
