Completely out of MSN
How to get back?

For years, I've had a site that enjoyed good placement on Inktomi. Now it completely gone although there are over 700 sites in MSN that refer to it, including Zeal. My stats show no crawls by slurp or anything remotely associated with Inktomi, or Yahoo, for that matter. Its all Google now.

What's my best strategy to get back into MSN? I'll pay if I have to.

I should have added that this is not per se a commercial site.

Whenever someone posts a message like this, I do a quick check on some of my own sites. I'm not seeing any problems.

Could be a glitch as they've switched over databases. I'd suggest that you contact Yahoo and then wait. If it's the site I'm thinking of, you definitely don't want to pay for SiteMatch to include it quickly. That would turn it into a PPC site, which in this case is really silly.

There's a thread in the Yahoo forum that sounds like it might be on topic for you...

Yahoo review of penalized sites
Believed by Webmasters to be clean

Also, check your StickyMail.

If you are not a commerical site, then you best route is to go the free submit.

If you believe that your site is of significant value and could significantly enhance the index, you can try the Trusted Feed for non Commercial sites. This is outlined in the Content Aquisition Plan announced recently.
