As of midnight April 15th, Yahoo! Search stopped automatically integrating URLs previously included into search results as part of an Inktomi Search Submit paid inclusion program. This does *not* mean that all of these URL's were removed from the Yahoo! index on April 15th. URLs previously submitted through Inktomi's program may still show up in Yahoo! Search results in one of two ways.
First, it is likely that URLs submitted through Inktomi programs are already being picked up by the Yahoo! Search Technology crawler and are represented in the index separate from participation in a paid inclusion program. Second, if you choose to migrate to Site Match then your URLs will be submitted for review for the Yahoo! index and, if accepted, will show up in Yahoo! Search results.
There are two things to note. First, if you choose to continue your Search Submit subscription, while your URLs will not appear in Yahoo! Search results they will appear until the end of your subscription term on portal partners that were previously powered by Inktomi. So you will receive the distribution you originally paid for. Second, Yahoo! is very serious about combating Spam in its search results (some will argue that we're too serious, but that's for another thread). URLs considered by Yahoo! to be Spam will be removed from the index regardless of how those URLs first got into the index.

Hopefully you will shade light on some question on yahoo serp since you are a insider.

I've not seen any PFI pages drop out of the rankings. I didn't expect to see falls from sites which have been around for a while but was surprised to see pages submitted via INK PFI as recently as mid-February still in there and holding up well. All sites are well linked to though by decent directories, so this must have ensured they were crawled by Yahoo.

I haven't seen a drop in my traffic from Yahoo, and it appears they still have my site nicely indexed. Some pages are ranking a tad higher than a week ago...... some a tad lower.
SO if the paid feed is in place and running for my catagories, thus far it's not affecting me. *crosses fingers and holds breath* Maybe, just maybe, the paid inclusion program won't do baaaaad things to those of use who were spidered free.
On the other hand, things could change tomorrow. LOL
