Turns out, there was an inappropriate setting at yahoo that caused us not to be in the index. It wasn't an actual issue with our site at all.
We just politely kept on them until they finally opted to try to help us out. They saw that we had over 60k inlinks but were clearly blacklisted. We asked for reason why by politely stating that we could not find any known/honest reason why we would be excluded and would gladly and immediately fix any issue they brought up.
My site has been in a similar situation for over year and half. The only URLs they will lsist now is if I submit through the Search Submit Basic program. We have gone through our site and can't find aything that the site is doing wrong.
I also found that Yahoo! do indeed listen to re-inclusion requests from honest polite people with legitimate sites.
In our case, I think we had too many Amzn pages. We removed them ages ago when G began penalizing them also, and asked Y! to list us, and they did.
I used the well known link mentioned above.
In any event, I tried politely posting a fairly detailed description of our problem in the site explorer feedback section after noticing a few of yahoo rep's were reading and replying.
When Google drops sites, there is most of the time a good reason that can be found (that we like it or not). With Yahoo, could be that they screwed up, flat and true.
When I see how their bot behaves, I cant find any reason to believe that these guys know what they are doin!
In the past year and half I sent numerous emails and did not hear anything. One happy woman!
