So I am curious if Yahoo can penalize a site? If yes, what should I do to reinclude it back in the search.
If your website is not indexed, it does not mean your domain is penalized.
Yahoo indexing process is comparatively slower than Google, so better give it some time and you just focus on your on page and off page optimization.
You can try some more techniques that can help you in getting indexed fast.
- Submit your website to Yahoo! directory (this is paid directory and have good editorial command)
- Social Bookmarking (Yahoo! Buzz)
- Participate in Yahoo! communities
- Join Yahoo! question Answers
