    Damn! Excluded from Yahoo Directory for having AdSense?

    Just think of all that traffic you'll miss out on, lost surfers and webmasters checking the competition. That's bogus.

    /me goes back about normal business... :D

    I don't think that Yahoo! will disqualify you if you display adsense ads as long as you do it reasonable (without stuffing it all over the place) and if your site has good content and structure.

    @adnan: I think that Yahoo! directory brings quality, targeted traffic to your site because I myself buy a lot of online products via merchants listed in the Yahoo! Dir.

    Thx Potnuru.

    Now I have to figure out a way to be close to sure that my site won't be turned down. I read their guidelines, the $299 is Non refundable. Bummer.

    I kind of have the same problem myself. :confused:

    My site got listed about a month ago in the personal watercrafts section for free. Lately, I have been thinking of adding Adsense but, I'm afraid that they may disqualify my site if I do. I have been getting lots of traffic from them since it was listed and I don't want to loose that. I'm wondering, too, if somebody has done it successfully in the past.
