Anyone experiencing similar issues?

I launched 3 sites at the end of last year and still only the homepage is indexing in Yahoo. I have since launched several others, on a different server, and not experienced these issues. Even after moving the 3 original sites onto the same server, Yahoo is still only indexing the homepage. Anyone out there with insight? All of the sites I have launched, with and without this issue, are templated so they are very similar in structure and I feel like I have done my due diligence as far as trouble shooting.

Help if you can.

You are most likely banned from Yahoo. That's how my site is too and has been that way for years, despite many emails to their 'support'.

hsvs10 not trying to be short with ya but your best bet is to forget yahoo and see were your at in Bing as Yahoo will soon be a memory. Read up on Bing ranking factors, get a webmaster area started, submit a sitemap, and put all your effort into Bing

+1 to pursuing Bing.

If you recently acquired the domain it could be the ban was from the previous owner. Check the Wayback Machine for evidence of what it may have been. Pointing this out to Yahoo! may get it lifted.

There are archive sites of whois info on the net to further back your assertion. Good Luck!
