In my view i have a decent site which i have been working on for like at elast 12-14 hours a day, 7 days a week, for the last 4 years and it little hurts to see Yahoo or anyone else labeling you as SPAM and not giving you a chance to even know what you have done wrong.
I have spend last 6 months trying just to figure out what I did wrong to get a penalty...
You're not alone, enotalone.
But I am trying to maintain confidence in the following:
1) My site in the top SERPS of Google and absent from Yahoo! SERPS makes look Google better than Yahoo!. (No, I really believe this >;->).
2) Yahoo! doesn't want to look worse than Google.
Therefore Yahoo! has two choices - either pay Google to dump my site from the Google SERPS too, (unlikely), or else start including my site in its own Y! SERPS.
I could write to Yahoo! and point this out to them, but I think I'll just leave it to them to figure it out for themselves. >;->
It is shame Yahoo! puts webmasters through this process but there is no other way unless you can kidnap Tim and ask Yahoo to release the penalty for your site so you will release Tim.
Im in the same boat as most with a site thats been around for 5 years, is considered an authority site in G, and is ranked in the top 10 in the Y Directory for some pretty competitive terms, yet when you search on the domain name in the Web results, you get over 3000 scraper sites using my content - Ive complained and even filed copywrite complaints with Yahoo - and everything is ignored. Should have known better than to pay Inktomi for listing a few years ago
