I got an email from Overture Site Match stating that my site status has been changed to accepted.

I did PFI for the site right before Yahoo! switched to INK.

Why has my site automatically been converted to Site Match?

I wanted to try to get the site indexed for free before going PPC with Yahoo!.

Yahoo! team please advise.

Are you sure it's from overture?

Positiontech is giving listings in yahoo till April 15th. I too am unhappy about this because it actually wiped out the free listings I had in yahoo for my 2 domains. I want out so I can get crawled for free instead . It was an awful tradeoff becvause paying for one link on one domain resulted in losing over 2000 pages that were in yahoo for free. (I had paid to get into msn actually and didn't realize there'd be then a situation where it would go into paid yahoo).

There are 3 sites I paid for to positiontech right at timee of transition and they all resulted in losing my free pages that were previously in yahoo. In any case, it is supposed to end April 15th so I don't know if that means it's possible to get back into yahoo again for free as was before.
