|Yahoo Slurp Crawling sites, but not including in serps|
Slurp crawling after reinclusion request
I have some sites that were banned awhile back from what I believe was an ip block ban, or registration block. I say registration block because i registered client sites with the same handle. I have emailed Yahoo notifying them of the changes to the sites, adhering to ALL of their guidelines, hence the recent visits by slurp I suppose.
My question is, Yahoo Slurp is now crawling the sites, when should I anticipate inclusion in the serps? The sites have been crawled for about 2 months, and there are 10's to 100's of quality white-hat links.
Any help would be greatly apprecitated!

When you say that they are crawling your sites, do the spiders go deep, or do they just grab the robots.txt and the index page?

If they are indeed crawling your site and not just your robots.txt and index page, you should return on the next update.
Im currently facing the same situation. My site does not show up, yahoo only has my index page in there database, 2 copies of it.
Which email address did you write to ask for re-inclusion? How long did it take from when you sent the email to when you started seing slurp again?

Actually the spider just grabs the robots and index so I guess thats not so good news.

I replied to the webmasterworldfeedback address and also was pointed to a form to fill out, I have the url but won't post it.
So anyway I'm stuck at square one i guess. What do u think?
I should also add, my site has been hit 66 times this month by slurp according to my stats. I haven't gotten into my log files to see what was crawled for sure.
If its just crawling your robots and index page, consider yourself banned.
They have been doing this to me since august. I still only have 2 instances of my index page in their database. No traffic what so ever.
If they only gave a detailed reason to why i was banned, i would not be very upset about the situation. They simply reply with an email that has 20 different possible reasons, some that don't even pertain to you. That is what makes me upset about this whole situation.

Watch out on Friday of this week for more pages... Just my prediction. Yahoo seems to be on a weekly / monthly cycle.
On the Friday of the second full week of the month, they update their index. Every Friday they seem to update results.
It doesnt matter if the bot is visiting your website - I have a penalty (I guess), and at the same time Yahoo is crawling my website every day slurping about 3,000-4,000 pages, and yet, only the home page is in the index.

If this IS the case it sure would be nice if they gave precise reasons why a site had been banned instead of canned responses.
Banning a site could easily cause irreparable damage to a company and to think the company had no way to defend themselves is sickening. Its clear to me that competitors can and do have a direct affect on our sites. The redirect/hijacking issue has convinced me of that.
Y! should contact each and every site they plan to ban. Innocent until proven guilty is a nice start - I have always worn a white hat, yet I have several sites that seem to be banned. I assure you its not of my doing, yet I am the one that suffers!
