I just got this message in our Store Manager:

We recently introduced features that provide more control over customer interaction with your store. The Page Not Found Error Handling [help.yahoo.com] feature allows you to create and serve custom 404 error pages. The Yahoo! Domain Redirect [help.yahoo.com] feature enables you to redirect traffic permanently from Yahoo! Store URLs to your preferred domain.

I've been wanting to see this for a long time . . . THANKS for listening Yahoo! :)

It's about time that Yahoo gives its store operators the same opportunity to get dumped from the Yahoo database that the rest of us have enjoyed since the switch.

[webmasterworld.com...]

Perhaps with Store now using 301's a fix may be on the horizon!

Webguerrilla, if I understand correctly, you think that Yahoo Store owners weren't getting dumped before?

I am a Yahoo store owner, and my site got dumped from yahoo when they switched to their own results.

And, I use the store.yahoo URL. I don't think there was any special treatment of Yahoo Store owners.

Or, maybe i misunderstood your statement. If so, I appologize.

This page [seotoolset.com] should clear up any confusion regarding my comments.

Yahoo is incapable of following and correctly indexing 301 redirects. Using them puts you at risk of having your Yahoo listings dumped.

Oh, I get it. Sorry about that. I thought you meant that yahoo stores were somehow "protected" from being dumped because they had Yahoo.com in their domain.

But, what you are saying is that the 301 redirect thing has been a problem for everyone, and now it could be an "additional" problem for yahoo store owners.

I appologize that I misunderstood. I think i get it now.

Thanks.
