I have been reading all the different threads related to Yahoo! penalty questions for some time now. I collected a couple of questions from the various threads that still seem to be unasnwered
I have yet to find a concrete answer on how to determine the penalization of sites.
According to Yahoo!'s submit for review page, if your site is listed for an obscure phrase or senetence, you are not penalized, and do not bother filling out the request for review.
But what if it comes back fifth to last, behind all the feeds, for obscure senetences on the your page? Is this considered being listed and not penalized?
Fifth to last, but not returned in SERPS for any KWS. Is this a penalty.
In index over the weekend, but not during the week. Is this a penalty?
When you hit 'more pages from site' link, two copies of index are shown, but no other pages from site. Is this a penalty?
