    site blocked?


    Hi,

    i sent the following mail to yahoo:

    I own a website which used to be at
    http://jefpatat.freefronthost.com which
    is now moved through 301 to www.
    jefspalce.be

    I'm pretty sure my site meets your
    policies so i'm wondereing why i'm not
    in the results.

    some pages are realy relevant and i'm
    sure lots of visitors would be glad if
    they found them

    kind regards, Jef
    got the following reply:
    Hello,

    Thank you for taking the time to write us.

    Your site appears in the Search index as follows:
    Jef's Palace - Have fun with DIY electronics
    This site explains how to build your own high quality audio amplifier
    www.jefspalace.be - 10k - Cached - More from this site - Save - Block

    Web results are the most relevant web pages found by Yahoo! Search in
    response to your search terms. Web results are generated from billions
    of web pages crawled and indexed by Yahoo! Search. Web search lists
    results ranked by relevance and offers a combination of sites from the
    entire Web obtained by Yahoo! Search and from the Yahoo! Directory.

    A site may be listed in the Yahoo Search Index and may not be among the
    results displayed for a specific search. To verify that a site is in the
    Yahoo! Search Index follow the instructions in our FAQ:

    http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/indexing/indexing-01.html

    Many factors influence whether a particular web site appears in Web
    Search results and where it falls in the ranking. These factors can
    include the number of other sites linking to it, the content on the
    pages, the updates we make to our database, the testing of new product
    versions, the discovery of additional sites, changes to the search
    algorithm, and other factors. It is not unusual for a site's position in
    the ranking to fluctuate. Results are not static.

    If the site is in the Search Index, but no longer shows in the same
    position in results for a particular query, then most likely the site's
    ranking has changed. As Yahoo! discovers and includes additional sites
    or as the search algorithm evolves, and the index is updated the ranking
    for some sites will also change. Due to the dynamic and rapidly
    changing nature of the Web, your site's ranking might decrease or
    increase if other sites were found and assigned a higher or lower rank.



    What you can do if you're not satisfied with a site's ranking.
    If you are not satisfied with the overall visibility of your site for a
    selected search term and would like to find more information on search
    engine ranking, please refer to our FAQ with tips for improving the
    quality of your website:

    http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/ranking/ranking-02.html

    Or, explore the Search Engine Optimization category in the Yahoo!
    Directory:

    http://dir.yahoo.com/Computers_and_Internet/Internet/World_Wide_Web/Site_Announcement_and_Promotion/
    Search_Engine_Optimization__SEO_/

    Sites like Webmaster World feature discussion forums that can offer
    interesting perspectives on web search.
    Note: The sites listed in this category are run by independent third
    parties and are not owned or controlled by Yahoo!.

    Note: Search results may include links to sites that participate in the
    Content Acquisition Program (CAP). CAP enables content providers to
    submit web pages and content directly to Yahoo! for review and inclusion
    within the Yahoo! Search Index through the Yahoo! Search Submit program.
    Yahoo! Search Submit offers a way for you to submit URLs that are
    quality reviewed and included in the index that powers multiple web
    portals, including Yahoo! Search. For more information, please visit:

    http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com/srchsb/index.php

    Note: Ranking or placement on search pages is not guaranteed in this
    program, only inclusion in the database that powers results.

    You might also consider taking advantage of the Sponsor Results program
    in order to have your site appear near the top of Yahoo! Search results
    for a particular search query.

    Lots of bla bla bla, but what interests me is the 6th line at the end: Save-Block

    Does this mean my site is blocked? And what should I do to unblock it? The site used to be at jefpatat.freefronthost.com but with a 301 I redirected it to www.jefspalace.be.

    Of course I would like to get SE results, it's not for a business, it's just some fun with my homepage.

    Any help? No results for MSN or google either.

    Kind regards, Jef
