So I used the re-review process with a site that only has the home page listed.

I specified that the site was listed in the index, but only the home page.

Their response is that the re-review process may take several WEEKS, to check the index to see if my domain is listed (which it is - just the home page), and that they will not communicate with me further.

I've never seen such an odd approach.

Has anybody used their re-review form successfully?

I'm not saying anything is as fact, so don't get yourself worked up ;)

If you are one that believes they hire SEO's just to add to their payroll and that they do NOT tweak sites in and out so be it. I've had my own experiences of hearing completely different stories from some of their people.
Relax, it's my opinion based upon "MY" experiences, those around me, and word from a couple people that "should" know what they are talking about.

edited And I'm not saying you can't rank on Yahoo, I know plenty of sites/people that hold the top 5-10 spots using the exact same content on each site...hehe

haha..

Seriously though, if you do a search for anything like travel, email, images, shopping, finance etc... what does Yahoo show you (what catches your eye)? Now check MSN/Google for the same terms even though MSN/Google offers all/many services or related areas, they are not as blatant at pushing themselves/services/information. I think in the future website owners have more to fear from Yahoo being their competition than they do their competitors.

Sure Yahoo takes the top spot in some searches with it's shortcut, but I think it's a leap to say they're supressing other sites (and I'm not saying you are saying that). Some people do take that leap and in my opinion that's venturing into tin-hat-land.

I just did a travel search and Yahoo is #3 in Google. I'm sure Yahoo Travel wants to be there just as much as About.com, TripAdvisor, etc. want to be there.

I did the same travel search in MSN and the Yahoo/TripAdvisor gang weren't there (nice to see some difference, too).

I did the same search in Yahoo and got the Yahoo Travel shortcut [tools.search.yahoo.com]. The rest of the results contain a few sites I spotted in Google. The number one result isn't a sitematch partner, just a hyphenated-domain AdSense informational site (and that site is number one in MSN, too).
