    It's over a year. I've sent countless emails, my RA's for a trusted feed are denied.
    SEMrush
    Yahoo tell me i'm breaking the rules but not which rules! I'm 100% white hat but doing something wrong?

    Anyone shed ANY light? Cos I give up. :(

    No answers, just questions:

    Unbanned from what, exactly?

    What are "RA"'s?

    What is a "trusted feed"?

    Inktomi have banned me, inktomi control the listings for Yahoo, MSN and countless other large search engines.

    You can learn answers to the other two questions from google, or from here www.positiontech.com :)

    Basically a trusted feed gets you in inktomi but you pay for every click (in the natural listings.)

    Your going to have to be more specific

    Your trusted feed is just a PPC from positiontech.

    RAs? Here is Google - Give us a clue which one are you talking about?

    Its not looking good in the choices from this perspective

    So - give us a clue :cool:

    RA is what positiontech call it. I beleive it stands for a "request authorisation" [for the trusted feed to go agead] but yahoo decline it because im not conforming their their guidelines.

    The guidelines are sketchy and any site could be considered in breach in my opinion! So it doesn't help

    Sorry, wont give urls out in public forums :(

    I'll pm it fine, just not in the public light.

    However, part 2 to my story is thus:

    Tuesday duplicated all my old banned content to a brand new domain. Used
    digital points banner exchange service to get some quick links
    (http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/ad-network/?signup=122 if it helps I have
    a weight of 11,288)

    I'm running _only_ three keywords from this weighted account.

    Today I look on Yahoo to find I have number1 for the biggest keyword! :D

    No, not really. You have a website that you want to be found yet you won't post the url. Sounds pretty fishy to me. If you want help, then give us all the info, otherwise quit crying about it cuz we have no idea what you're talking about.

    Actually, sometimes NOT posting a url to a forum is a smart thing.

    Ask Foxy about weber bbqs... It seems like dp forums is there to stay!

    Many people have had forum posts out rank there own website in the search results simply due to posting the link in the forum.

    I wish this weren't true.... I hate you Shawn (j/k :))

    I get outposted all the time by this freaking forum. I don't really care though, this is a great forum. It is those 'shady' ones you have to watch out for....

    How do I know your not one of my competitors?

    Slim chance in my opinion, but the chance exists. That aside I don't want one of my competitors searching the web for my domain name, finding this forum and finding these great tools :)

    Don't forget what I write here could potentially be on the web. With sites such as web.archive.org anything I write could exist forever. And when I own a multimillion pound website I don't want these comments coming back to haunt me ;)
