Y! DIRECTORY LISTING RELATED
Got hired to "clean up the mess" left behind by another SEO person. He submitted my client's URL in the WRONG directory with an out-dated description. I have no way to recover the email he used to submit this incorrect listing, thus cannot do the normal "change suggestion" at [add.yahoo.com...] (already tried about 2 months ago)
Should I RE-SUBMIT? as if it is a new site with a new affliated email? despite the fact that the URL is already in Y! Directory? would it be mistaken as duplicate submission?
If not, is there another channel to reach Y! and get them to fix this for me?
Yahoo_Mike had try to help (thank you, Mike) by directing me to emailing the following address:
'email@example.com' , but my mail was REJECTED by their mail server. So I am still in search of a channel to communicate with Y! in a civilized manner.
I would like to stress that the issue at hand is about WRONG listing, Y! Directory is serving users INCORRECT info if they make it impossible for webmasters to submit corrections.
Is there any way that you could change the URL and resubmit? Or could you set up an alternative "traffic" domain to submit to the directory?
