But yahoo drives me none. They don’t have my site in their search.
My site is example.com It only comes in yahoo when i type "example.com" and not even when i type "example" Only one page has been crawled by them that is home page and they keep on updating the page once in week. But they are not taking the internal pages in to the engine and also not putting the homepage anywhere in the search result.
I kept the site away from searches for 2 months with robots.txt file
So my question is how can I determine if yahoo have not banned my site. OR they have just not crawled the site into their search.
But now it has been 1 month when i allowed engines to crawl my site. and they are not just taking up my site.
Please tell me how can I check for the possible yahoo ban or what i can do get it crawled soon. I believe i am missing on possible 15000 unique daily because of this as this site have over 200000 pages with unique Meta tags and contents
Looking for your expert opinion.

This sounds like a penalized site. If you search example.com and only the home page comes up, that’s generally a pretty strong indication the site is penalized. If you search example.com and the home page and other pages come up, but all pages but the home page do not have the word “cached” next to the url, that’s not a good sign either.
You can ask them here; [add.yahoo.com...]
And generally speaking they will tell you the status, after that they pretty much turn a deaf ear.
It's possible that you have simply been hand removed and can be reincluded quickly if you fix whatever the problem is. If you check Site Explorer - [siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com...] - and your pages are in there, but not showing in the serps, that's probably the case.
We fell out of Yahoo after a June update and all I could get back from Yahoo were cryptic "See our Guidelines" e-mails (Yahoo REALLY needs to work on their communication). I finally went to SES San Jose and tackled every Yahoo I could find and got one who agreed to check out our situation. We had been over the site a zillion times and couldn't figure out what it was they had a problem with.
Anyway, I got an e-mail explaining the problem from a rep, which still puzzled us, but I blog about that here if you want to take a look - <snip> .

[edit reason] terms of service [webmasterworld.com] [/edit]
Generally speaking our experience has shown penalties in Yahoo are most often due to linking issues. Are you linking back and forth to a bunch of other sites you own, that are hosted on the same server?
they told me to check up their terms and conditions
Could anyone imagine communicating with a client, or customer, in this fashion? Too bad the “Peanut Butter” memo didn’t address this issue as well. Piss on your customers and eventually they get a little cranky about it.
