I used Position Tech to submit 2 sites to Fast 4 days ago, my stats at Pos Tech say I am in & refreshed, however my sites are not even listed in fast. PT emailed me some generic message that the problem was due to a change in algo. I didn't accept this generic message and now their responce is "Fast has imposed a penalty against these urls. They do not adhere to url submission guidelines". Can a site get listed and banned the same day? This site is not spammy, buy it is database driven.

Well, why not? If somebody looks at the pages he either accepts them or takes them out of the index.
In any case I would certainly not recommend paying for a programme which is announced to be discontinued.

I have a database driven widgets site and on my home page I link to about 200 different products using aliases i.e. big-red.widgets.com. I paid Position Tech to be listed in Fast and never got listed. A staff member at P tech called me and said that I was black listed from Fast for excessive cross-linking. All I did was link from my home page to my product pages (same domain). Does any of this make since to you pros? Are alias not accepted on some search engines?

To be honest that doesn't make much sense to me, no. Cross-linking obviously refers to linking between domains, not internal linking. Any chance that you have true crosslinking involving that site?

The person at Pos Tech said I have too many links 250 from my home page and I need some content, not just links. That what I was doing was excessive "crosslinking". Links on homepage link to my own subdirectories. Can Pos Tech not like my site and choose to not list it?
