I have noticed a lot of traffic from Yahoo lately, but I'd like to think that's because many of my other pages show also.
Obviously, you would not get the benefits of the previous Inktomi programme after April 15, and your rankings in the new Yahoo network may change, but the URL's would still be there because it's in Inktomi for the subscription period.
Here is what I was told by a reseller of the old Ink PFI when I enquired:
<< Your Inktomi, FAST and AskJeeves urls (depending on what you formerly subscribed to) are still active and indexed under your current annual contract.
Inktomi and FAST are no longer accepting renewal or new url submissions to their paid inclusion
programs. Overture Site Match is Inktomi's and FAST's replacement for the paid inclusion
service. Your legacy Inktomi and FAST urls will continue to be indexed through their
annual contract. AskJeeves Url submissions have NOT been affected by this change.
Existing Inktomi and FAST "Paid Inclusion" customers will NOT incur a CPC through their annual contract. If you elect to roll them over to the new Overture Site Match service they will incur a CPC. Existing Inktomi urls are currently included for free in the new Yahoo! search portal until April 15, 2004.
After April 15, 2004 they will be removed from the Yahoo! search portal ONLY. They will continue
to be indexed and made available to former Inktomi search portals. If you wish to have them
included in the new Yahoo! search portal you will need to roll them over to the Overture Site Match service within your subscribers center.>>>
Hope this helps!
