If an email bounces back to me due to an invalid account, then I update all the website listings using that email account with a "noshow" flag. The result is that;
- The website is not show when browsing by category
- The website is not show on the top 25 or latest links pages (if applicable)
- The website is not shown in the Top 9 of the home page or Category pages (if applicable)
- The website can only be found in the RSS feeds and by doing a search for keywords that match the website.
In some cases, the same email address has been used by SEO companies or they have provided a temporary email (on their domain) to clients - leading to hundreds of websites no longer being listed.
If the email bounces back due to a typo or something recoverable, then I will try to correct the issue and not set the "noshow" flag.
So, apologies if you suddenly find that your website is no longer listed in Craigs Directory. Please check your website (do a search for your website, i.e. yourdomain.com), let me know, and I will remove the "noshow" flag.
