Has anyone else seen thier sites be fully indexed and yest get no traffic at all?
Lots of people, quite a bit back Yahoo went to a model where if your site is penalized you still appear in the index, everything is correct, except you will never rank for anything.
First thing to do is determine if you have been hit with the mysterious Yahoo penalty flag.
Since MSn and yahoo are newer they just applied filters across the board that wipe you out
Exactly, you’re either fine, or your zapped with a penalty that sends you to internet oblivion, and generally speaking there’s no coming back.
Google, on the other hand handles these matters in a much more eloquent fashion; you just sort of sink down a bit in the rankings depending on how egregious your actions have been. And if you make amends you can slowly rise back up.
search [site:yourdomain] and you will get your 17,500 pages
search [site:yourdomain keyword] where keyword is any word that exists in all your pages such as "copywrite" etc. You'll find the number of pages as way smaller than the 17,500.
This is an indication that Yahoo now has a separate index similar to Google's supplemental. These pages exist in the Yahoo index only to let Yahoo to claim they have 9 billion pages in their index. they are not included in any serps where the number of entries in the serps is significant. sounds very similar to the google supplemental index!
