"Daily Balance" 0.00 all day for last few days
then updates in historical report

 2:17 am on Oct 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

Since late last week I no longer see any "Daily Balance" other than 0.00 each day. I have to check the next day via the "Yesterday Performance Report" to see my daily earnings. Am I just an obsessed stat-checker or are others not seeing this?



 2:19 am on Oct 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

I called, they are working on it now.


 2:37 am on Oct 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

Yeah - I was just writing that this beta is not for the faint of heart... myself included.


 2:46 am on Oct 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

deja vu of adsense to publisher communication.

When I called this morning it was news to the support person that anything was wrong.

Why they don't have a little message box on the home page that can show system status and notification of upgrades is beyond me. So what if it is beta - it ain't monopoly money (monopoly money is reserved for Google search system).

I must have wasted an hour today checking the stats to see if it is fixed and another 1/2 hour checking the forums.

same here, I'm tired of all this, I just change back to AS


 3:44 am on Oct 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

I make too much money with YPN over AdSense to call it quits... I can only assume things will get better which, in turn, means more profits... there's always the promise of AdCenter... ha ha ha

> same here, I'm tired of all this, I just change back to AS

when you signed up you knew it was BETA.. when will peopl e get a hint?


 9:50 pm on Oct 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

My daily balance is now up and working again. I sent an email to ypn about this two days ago, no reply. But its fixed so I shouldn't complain.


 10:29 pm on Oct 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

Yep me too


 11:10 pm on Oct 25, 2005 (gmt 0)

...and we're back!


 2:46 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Anyone else showing a $0.00 Balance in their daily activity report?


 2:59 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

I awoke this morning and found todays stats have not been updated. Saw the Daily Balance at 0.00 . Anybody else seen this today? Maybe they are just running a bit behind?
On the up note-yesterday was a really good day and the ads seem to be targeting the site better.


 3:22 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

I am also seeing it.


 4:23 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

0.00 balance all day. No activity. Stats seem to be stuck.


 4:30 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Same here. I hardly ever make any money from YPN in the morning anyways.. so that's not saying much.

It really worries me about this 'bubble' they have in place. Making 3+ dollars a click is a little... off the wall. However when CTR is as low as it is it's not much of a total upgrade from Adsense.

Oh well... still love Y! and will support them until they ban my sites..


 4:35 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Just called customer support. First time caller. My account rep is checking into this. Anxious to see how long a wait for the answer. I doubt it will take long. Let's see.


 6:24 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Ahh, the joys of being a beta tester. This is how it goes, so don't fret. I'm sure they're tracking our clicks while they monkey with the reporting system.


 6:50 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Has anyone gotten a time frame from Y! on this issue at all?


 7:01 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

I called 2 hours ago. Still no update or timeframe. This apparently happened a couple of weeks ago. Sure it will be back soon.


 7:13 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

Yeah. Like others mentioned, it just goes along with beta testing, and I don't really mind as long as my clicks are logged, because at least YPN contacts it's publishers and answers our inquiries.

I just have itchy stat checking fingers. :)


 9:59 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

what is wrong with YPN. It is 5:00pm Eastern Standard Time and this is the message on my account

No activity has been recorded so far today.


 10:02 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

guess that's why it's BETA - which you agreed to participate in when you signed up.. don't complain when things are broke because it's part of joining the beta.


 10:37 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

This is torture for me.. I like to check my stats every few minutes. Yahoo updates the stats so slowly to begin with and now they just stopped. Its really annoying


 10:59 pm on Nov 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

its all a matter of patient....everybody here prolly agree that more money is being made with YPN network...well at least for me it is...its in Beta mode people expect some flaws.


 1:25 pm on Nov 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

yup-- no stats or earnings reports for the 8th. I wish they would fix this .. I had a bang up day yesterday as far as I can tell.


 1:25 pm on Nov 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

So now I'm still showing zero clicks and zero everything.

However, my balance is higher, without anything reported to account for the change.

Anyone else getting this?



 1:35 pm on Nov 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

I'm glad I'm not the only one seeing this. My last data is from 11/7. They are continuing to deliver ads, one hopes they are counting the revenue, too.

Yahoo is probably trying to save bandwidth by not reporting to all you compulsive earnings-checkers. :)


 1:49 pm on Nov 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

Same here. I run the report and nothing for the 8th. However balance is higher and todays stats are working. THere was an 8th of November right? :)


 2:37 pm on Nov 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

You know, even as a beta tester, I would worry about this sort of thing, normally.

I've got the best cure for the YPN blues, though, and suggest it for everyone.

When I come here, I ALWAYS read the webmaster world Adsense forums, first.

That way, when something stupid happens, like . . . I'm getting $1+ epc but just can't track my stats for a couple of days, I feel A WHOLE lot better about it. :)

At this point, I think I'de rather go with clicksor or chitika in non contextual form + a decently converting banner or something than adsense.

I think if yahoo! can keep up the fantastic job it's doing with customer service, and not let the epc drop to far, they can take back MAJOR market share, not just for ppc advertising, but search, hosting/registration, media, news and whatever else they're doing.

Personally I've been talking up Y! for the last month now everywhere I go online, and it seems like people are becoming REALLY displeased with G. If I was making enough to invest in the stock market, I'de at LEAST go short with Y! for the next several months.


 2:44 pm on Nov 9, 2005 (gmt 0)

Go Short with YHOO? YCOME?
