Is Yahoo still banning COOP sites?

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by afactory, Nov 16, 2005.

  1. #1
    I was a long time away from the forum and would like to know from you guys is Yahoo still banning COOP sites? Is there any new with it?

    I have a coop site with about 20K pages indexed by Y! but site nowhere at the results even I type domain name at the search term.

    Thank you for your answers!

    One of my sites ranks #2 right after Microsoft's own trademarked name for one of their sites on Yahoo.

    It got to #5 because of the Coop (and a few other things) but recently it went to #2

    Yahoo never banned sites for that, and seems infact to be doing quite the opposite

    I don't know if I would go as far as saying that

    you guys don't know if that true or not true

    Most of my orginal coop sites are kicked out of yahoo, I have a few sites with coop that still do good with yahoo

    That doesn't really prove it either way

    I would say their is more of chance of losing your yahoo rankings if you use coop then if you don't but there is a chance you will lose your rankings anyway

    I wouldn't put coop on a clients site, if I was doing client sites

    of course some a lot of my sites had like 10,000 + weight pointing at them

    some even more like 25,000

    The idea of getting banned for co-op was probably linked to the weight factor. It seemed like those who saw their site dissapear were those who had lots of weight pointed at it. Lots of weight being 10,000 plus points.

    I dont think it would be the amount of weight, i think it would be how quickly that weight increased. If you went from 5k to 50k pointing at a site thats a whole load of new backlinks in a short time, bound to raise red flags. If you add weight slowly - 5k a week say, backlinks are gained in a more realistic timeframe

    I agree that Yahoo must have somekind of backlink filter on. Too much too soon and boom you are gone.

    It was a time when the site got about 2,000-3,000 uniques per day only from the yahoo, now it's about 10-15 uniques per month.

    You think the reason could be not of the coop?

    tiptopvillas, maybe you are right. But in this case the problem is coop.
    Nonskilful handling of a huge weight.

    From what I have seen is this. The fact that you use the coop does not get you banned.

    But how you accumulate links may trigger a penalty within Yahoo. You can use something else like Link Vault I suppose and trigger the penalty.

    I have to agree with the idea of getting a penalty from gaining too many links too quickly.

    I was always under the impression that any search engine penalized sites for getting links to quickly

    Look at the result from the "Charity" experiment site. I believe you will find your answer there.
