Does Inktomi now use the same database as Yahoo Search (as All-the-web and AltaVista do) or do they continue to have a separate database?
If they still have a separate database I assume they are still crawling the web separately? Does a submission to Site Match include a submission to both databases?
Any other news?
Thank you for your input on this. I recently had several sites removed from the Yahoo index, but they still appear in other listings such as Inktomi, MSN, ect. I am trying to figure out if I have been hit with a penalty of some sort, and if so will it spread to the other directories in time.
Is there any way to confirm why my sites were removed? I can't think of a reason and whatever it is at this stage I just want to know so I can repair what has happened.
Thanks for any help.
Thank you for the follow up, it is appreciated. I did send a message there listing the sites on May 4th. No doubt there are quite a few of these messages coming in.
Happily 3 of the 6 sites have reappeared this morning. My main concern is some sort of penalty but perhaps things are just evolving.
I can re-send the message if that would be helpful.
I could really use some help from anyone at Yahoo regarding these sites that are missing. I have sent several messages. As I have maintained, I can't imagine why I would have a penalty on these sites, but if I do, I will take the news like a man without a big fuss and just move forward trying to repair the damage.
The sites that reappeared briefly are gone, and cannot be found in MSN now either.
This is what we do for a living; create consumer information web sites. We take pride in these sites and they support the people I employ. Since this whole thing began I have tried to see it all play out, and take into consideration the enormous changes and expansion Yahoo has been undergoing. I am realistic that there will be bugs, adjustments and new challenges for all. However, this is beginning to take quite a toll on us.
Any word, in any format, good or bad would be appreciated.
Thank you for you time.
