Does anyone know how to get control of or edit a site on Yah.oo travel?? I just discovered tonight that my place has a listing and several reviews, yet no pictures or updated info. I have been trying for nearly two hours to figure out how to make updates! I've tried looking for guidance in their help section, tried asking a question on Yah.oo answers, tried calling and emailling... The email doesn't go through, one phone number didn't work at all and with the second number I could never get thru to a human. I'm about to scream and pull all my hair out! Has anyone dealt with this before and know the process? I'd really appreciate the help!!

Totally ignored the original question, sorry. I've given up on yahoo travel. It is so far out of date that places that have been closed for 10 years show up ranked higher than my place.

If I figure out how I did anything on there I'll post it.

BTW... I feel kinda dumb asking this now after posting my OP, but what exactly is the reason I often see you guys add spaces or punctuation to the middle of company or website names? Is it just so it can't be tracked in search results? I wasn't sure if I needed to do it in my OP or not...

Sometimes we don't want to draw attention to the company. Sometimes we just use other names instead like WallyWorld and the CostClub. No need to prop their name on the Internet and make someone from their social media come here to spam.

For smaller companies we add the spaces so it doesn't show up in their google alerts or so it doesn't show up at the top of a search for that smaller business. Google loves this forum so everything gets crawled quickly.

For big businesses like yahoo or google it has no impact at all so don't even bother. It just confuses things and make it t hard to read.

Well also add the spaces for spam emails or slimey companies so they don't show up here to rant and rave. And so as not to give their sites any link love we break up the URL with spaces.
