Directory, articles, information directories, massive product catalogue (amazon type) plus, plus, plus.

Listed with Business Express, complaint with new Y! release, submitted to free listing, showed 20,000 pages indexed in March, now: everything gone again.

Does Y! set a trigger for large sites being thrown out of the index to force them to include for pay?

This is a stupid, frustrating game.

AdFree,

Your site is excellent.

As long as your aren't some major corporation and you run a large site it seems like there is a high risk of being penalized.

They are giving reasons such as too many outbound links. Or links to unrelated content.

this is much like:

man with black hat and walking stick seen stealing old ladies bag.....

police now lock in jail for life anyone with a black hat and walking stick because it fits the profile of a bag stealer.

...or as another large, portal-like site might snatch a couple of Y! users...
