Yahoo Ban Lifted

 6:55 pm on Dec 29, 2004 (gmt 0)

I have good news for thos of you who had a Yahoo ban. My B2B site was able to successfully have the ban lifted. We sent email to several Yahoo email address given for search support. We did not receive any feedback confirming a ban but some traffic is now coming from Yahoo.

What do you mean by ban is lifted? Have they put all the pages of your site back in Yahoo?

some of my sites are back in Yahoo too.

I wouldn't be announcing that too loudly in these forums.
More than likely it was just removed by accident since
not many people working at Yahoo have a clue as to what
they are doing.

For sites that are back in, how did you find them?

Was it as constrictive as searching the title, or are you appearing ok in the rankings when searching targeted key words?

Thanks for any input as I had a bunch of sites put, "back in" but thatís a technicality, they are still penalized. Thatís a recent change Yahoo has made in that area, and very curious if others have had a different experience.

Yea please inform me I have been heavily penalized as of Dec 28 and am trying to figure out why. I have posted a new topic but it hasn't appeared.

Lots of interest in my earlier posting so I will post a follow up.

We have some top search terms for which we appear on Google but not on Yahoo. In fact our traffic on Google was almost 1000 visitors a day while Yahoo was 0. No SERPS in Yahoo.

After almost 1 year of it, about a month back i posted several emails to all the addresses for yahoo related to SEO and got some canned results. However sometime back I noticed that we had begun to see some position and that keeps on improving with time. Now we have very good traffic - almost 20% of our traffic is Yahoo.

Hope this helps!

Quick question - are you also in the Yahoo directory?
