Re: Yahoo! do I know if I'm blacklisted ?

Yahoo have been running this system for a while now - and other engines and directories are following suit. This generally applies to commercial sites only and usually only guarantees that they will look at your site - it doesn't always guarantee a listing/decent ranking.

WebPosition Gold is a great tool (and fairly cheap) which will help with submissions, finding out where you are ranked, page optimisation etc. It also helps to stop you getting booted off engines for accidentally spamming....

As for finding out if you are blacklisted - tricky one. You could phone/e-mail them to ask, although you might find it difficult to get hold of someone. But remember - be polite or you run the risk of being blacklisted if you aren't already.

Hope this helps.
