Now I have to say the first time I submitted to bizex I was really pleased. So it was without hesitation that I gladly peeled out the plastic again. I knew that google had picked up the url from a link on another site whilst said site was under construction and that was listed in yahoo, but that was months ago, so you can imagine how I felt when Bizex rejected based on the old under construction cached version. In other words Yahoo didn't actually bother to look at the real site which was of course more than ready. I have emailed them. We'll see what happens. the moral of this tale - make certain your site is correct in google before going to yahoo.

Welcome to the forums, rayjam. And thanks for the news about that little booby-trap. I would never have thought there could be a problem like that. For $199 I definitely expected a live look.

As long as you dished out the $199 you should be OK. They do guarantee you an appeal within 30 days, and I have been succesfull in using this serveral times.

I'm kinda wondering about this whole google thing, Yahoo has been known to compare whois information against your site's suggested title (to discourage quick name changes for better alphabetical listings). I'm wondering if their using the google chache for similar purposes....

An interesting question - what happens if you don't let Google cache your pages, and then submit to Yahoo! Would they look at the site or assume it wasen't there?

I would say if that is what Y! is doing as a matter of course, it is a bad idea. There are all kinds of reasons why the cache may not agree with the site pages. rayjam, It'll be interesting to see the response you get back from them.
