Will Blocking IP's / Domains Help?

Does anyone know if you Block a domain or IP on your server if you will still be charged for a click from Yahoo/Overture if that domain / IP sends a visitor?

Is there a time like 2 seconds that the visitor has to maintain on your site for the click to count?

The reason I'm asking is one of my best converting keywords has been picked up by a "partner" site -- & they are sending Only international visitors continuously thru this One keyword.

From past exeperience, I know it hopeless to ask that a domain Not send visitors to my site -- so I thought by blocking it, I can block the charges?

TIA

Probably a question for Y! tech support. Since the click is being redirected to your site, theoretically, Y! doesn't know whether you have blocked it.

I don't think IP blocking will save you any money, the click is still made as far as YSM is concerned.

Alright - that is enough of that. I deleted atleast 10 messages here that had nothing to with the original posters question. The vulgaries are not welcome anywhere on this system. If you can't play nice - then move along.

Whether you are a customer, a competitor, or just a flamer of yahoo - we don't do that bs flame and burn thing here. Please reread the TOS.

If you want to answer the original posters question - then jump in. If not - move along. This isn't a flame and burn forum. We have never done that here and won't start.


Now, to answer the orginal posters question: No blocking IP's is not the way to go at all.

The way to go, is contact your Yahoo rep and talk to them about blocking those clicks. They will give you satisfaction.
