My site was banned by Inktomi because of a coding error (white text in a table that had a dark blue background in IE but not when crawled!)

That was years ago! Why am I still banned? My site has all pages indexed and ranks No.1 for my keywords in MSN and Google.

Have you tried contacting Yahoo and telling them what is going on?

That thread doesn't fill me with much hope Go60Guy. ;)

I guess the decision is "is yahoo that important that I need to sacrifice my nice domain name which people love and type in regularly just to get into their index?"

The answer is "no" - so it looks like I'm created a few doorway sites tonight to submit to Yahoo. If that's the way they want it then that is the way they are going to get it.

(Out of interest, what do you think Yahoo thinks people do when faced with this situation? They think they are that important that people will move domains just to get into their index? No wonder they get so many doorway/adsense pages in their results!)

Yahoo is pretty strict, so before you resubmit be sure you have decent content. None of that lead generation content either. Some of the people who complain about getting shut out, of what I've seen, deserve to get shut out. I haven't seen your site, so I'm not commenting on yours.

Ranking well in Google or MSN does not mean you have a seal of quality either. Ranking well in Google does not mean your site is clean, and that's irrelevant to this discussion.
