I'd like to write this post and especially devote it to Yahoo Spam team. It is simply unbelievable how much spam is in its index, a lot of crappy sites get great placements just because they spammed around and got zillions of useless links! It's shame for such big company as Yahoo to allow that MUCH! spam in their index.
Regardless to tons of spam reports I've sent, sites remained there where they were, right on top! Even though they do not provide useful content at all, or not even contain real content, but just get placements for 'affiliate ids'. Meaning, yahoo lists a lot of official sites with embedded affiliate ids so affiliates can get credit of potential sales! That's real shame. It should be official site url listed at first and not affiliated urls!
I'll keep sending reports, maybe somebody get 'time' to check them out and see that I am not talking bulls*it (sorry for language, but I am pissed).
Watching all those affiliated urls beating my real sites with amazing quality content is really sad! Allowing them to rank high just because they spammed around with their aff'ed links is stupid IMO! Famous link bombing is still present in yahoo unfortunately!
By this post I would really LIKE to ask Tim or whoever reads this from Yahoo (if anyone) to try to work on their spam algo a little bit more and at least get rid of those affiliated links which are not making any good to the whole community!
Thank you for your time!
When my client's site finally beat "Default Plesk Page" in that search, I didn't know whether to celebrate or to cry.
