    4 year old site Banned in yahoo


    I have a very old and popular lyrics site http://www.reallyrics.com The site had good rankings in yahoo as well as in other search engines. One day out of blue moon, site just disappeared from yahoo.
    Site has 19 listings in yahoo directory (all unpaid), 9-10 listings in DMOZ and lot of backlinks from other music resources and link exchanges. Site gets updated at least twice a week (so no old / not updated content) and was doing very good till yahoo pulled the plug one fine day.
    I am still not able to understand why and how this happened.
    I will really appreciate if someone here can help me and point me in right direction to egt this issue fixed.

    Regards,
    Nitin

    I certainly hope so... However it has been more than 2 months now. I send them couple of emails but no response. Inner pages still gets added into yahoo directory because 2 months back site had just 16 listings in directory now it has 19. But in SERPS no pages.

    Yahoo is terrible at addressing issues brought to them. Best thing to do is try to wait it out. With the kind of crappy results yahoo is showing these days, they have bigger worries. (although its no wonder since they keep dropping quality sites and letting spammy pieces of @$#@# rule the results)
