Is There a Way Around 250 Excluded Domains Limit?

Has anyone been successful in getting Yahoo to extend the limit of blocked domains above 250? We are just now getting analytics sorted and I know that to truly optimize our account, we would need to block a hell of a lot more than 250 domians.

I'd be really interested in getting more than 250 domains blocked. This must be Yahoo's, attempt to see how it affects their bottom line.

These parter sites have thousands of domain names, so isn't blocking domain names really a moot point?

1 suggestion is to get multiple accounts, as each account can block up to 250 domains. This may help some if you can segregate your categories in a logical way.

I think your best bet is to just be picky with what domains you add to the list. Other than that, usually lowering your bids enough so it's out of the top 3 (sometimes 5) spots can get you off the fraudulent sites that send so much traffic.

I think your bids are too high.. When you are bidding really high, you show up in more domains, more bad domains.

You will always have few bad domains in the bunch.. Just concentrate on your top 50 domains that drive traffic - make sure there are no bad eggs in there..
