Mailed Yahoo about being dumped after the loss of Google results and I'm back today. Thank you Tim, Mike or whoever did the review. I'd actually resigned myself to total banishment and that Yahoo was permanently broken. Not so - I'm back in. Frustrating to say the least but it does look as though Yahoo is getting to grips (slowly) with some of the problems.
Damn - that means the phone will start ringing. I'd got used to being sat here surrounded by bottles of scotch and anti-depressants.
If the anti-depressants don't work I have no suggestions. Repeatedly mailing them doesn't work either - they might just drop you to the bottom of the list. I just did it the once, resigned myself to the fact I might never get back in and just got on with life - tis all you can do.
As I've said before, Yahoo bought up a lot in a short space of time without working out how that whole lot would work as a unit. Basically they're now doing a tidy up I suppose. The decisions were made high up, the engineers have been left to sort it out. Therefore don't expect fast results - they won't happen.
I truly believe my site meets Yahoo's guidelines.
why is everyone still hung up on the idea that a ban can only be for violating catch-all guidelines? there are plenty of posts explaining how Yahoo are taking down sites for other things, unluckily being on a spammed shared IP, the wrong number/ratio of outbound/recipcrocal links and being linked too by a bad nieghbourhood to name but three. The guidlines are little more than a disclaimer enabling them to fend off direct questioning IMHO.
