Hello guys/gals,
I have successfully removed one of my pages from yahoo index, using Site Explorer, but the problem is that the page is still shown as a back link to one of the websites. What can I do to make yahoo remove that backlink fast? It is critical to me.

The link on the removed page physically doesn't exist.

I know some day that link will be removed but what can I do to make yahoo do it as soon as possible?

You have to wait until the index updates. It's a SERP. Might take a month or so.

martinibuster,
if I report that link via site explorer that the mentioned page is spam. What will yahoo do? will it ban the whole website or will they remove just the problematic page, or will they do anything?


note: the website whose backlink is problematic page is under my control too.
