about 15 days ago we decided to be indexed in yahoo directory, so we paid $299 to have our link in the proper section. After some days, Yahoo staff added our link. The day after we noticed that our site completely disappeared in the Yahoo search. And never came back. Our pages are present on yahoo search, Slurp indexes our site regularly and heavily, but we lost all our good position (we were first with a lot of keywords). Before we entered (and PAID!) the directory, Yahoo search brought to us about 20% of the external traffic (about 40000 visits/day on 180000), now 2%.
Can someone explain this?
