The ability to delete urls like this is a nice addition, but I have some queries.
If a site owner wants to delete a url from the index, there's a likelihood that they are going to want to delete more than 5 urls eventually. I didn't think I needed to use the tool and then realised that I had about 15 urls which shouldn't really be there. I've now ammended the robots.txt file, but I can only delete 5 urls which is a shame.
I'm thinking that it's not the end of the world if the aforementioned urls are in the index, but it'd be nice if they weren't. But should I save my 5 deletes for urls which I really really do need to delete?
Strange that Yahoo don't state any timeline.
