Does anybody know the answer to that question?

Also, once the 12 months is up and I cancell site match, would Yahoo remove me from their index again? or would there be a chance I would remain in there for free like I always used to be until they penalised me for a tiny bit of crosslinking which Ive now cleaned up.

Many thanks

chrisandsarah, my site has a penalty too. i applied and was accepted in SiteMatch but that did not fix the problem with penalty. the site would show up only if you search for domain.com

Few days ago my SiteMatch account run out of money and the site was dropped from index until i put money in SiteMatch again.

Short answer is Yes. However, you are subject to the quality review, which means your site should be clean with good quality content. See the Yahoo! SPAM guidelines for further information.

Also, once the 12 months is up and I cancell site match, would Yahoo remove me from their index again

You will return to the status you had pre-Site Match. So if you were in the index via the free crawl you will remain there. However your ranking may have changed, for a large number of reasons. i.e. the index could've grown in size, the algorithm may of changed etc.

i applied and was accepted in SiteMatch but that did not fix the problem with penalty.

Speak to your reseller. That is part of what you pay fees for - for them to support you.

If you want specific information relating to your site, you can sticky mail me.

No, in my experience SiteMatch does NOT get you back into Yahoo search results if your site has been penalized. Neither does it help you find out why your site has been penalized.

Which is really annoying, since the number 2 listing for one of our keywords is a site that has to be using redirects or some other spam technique to make itself show up. The keyword isn't visible at all in the page that comes up (what comes up is a page of graphic ads). But that spammy site comes up month after month as the second listing for the keyword (which also happens to be our site name). Meanwhile, our site, which doesn't use any spamming techniques, is demoted so it only shows up if you type in the entire domain name. SiteMatch has not changed that.

Speak to your reseller. They should be able to - on your behalf - escalate the issue.

Part of what you pay for is support from your reseller. In fact, that is one of the key areas that should differinate resellers, being their customer service team.

Didn't work for us either. Received a penalty, got reviewed by SiteMatch and accepted. Still have the penalty.

New domain and new ip - cheaper and faster and great results.

A new domain and new IP isn't an option for branded sites. While that's a way to get generic products or affiliate links found, it doesn't do any good if you have an established, branded business and people who search for the brand name (ie: Popular Company-Name) instead of the domain name (popularcompanyname.com).

We had some sites penalized, (no idea why but probably they did not like our linking structure), we submitted one of the sites through SiteMatch and it was approved. However, it never really came back. You can find it using a command so technically itís back in, but it gets absolutely zero traffic. Prior to the penalty it was # 4 for our main key word.

You can be penalized and accepted through Sitematch but that will not change anything.

Before you pay for Sitematch message me and I'll send
you an interesting thread to read about Sitematch, penalties and Yahoo....
