YPN intresting question plz answer

 1:37 am on Dec 1, 2005 (gmt 0)

I was reading the term of service of ypn
what does this mean?
Abuse of Services. You agree not to:

12. display all or part of the Ad Unit to any user located outside the US;
does it mean I can show ads to people outside UNited states .
does it mean that I will be banned if somebody from outside the USA click on yahoo ads .
Please make it clear?

It means YPN holds the right to ban you for showing your ads to users located outside of the USA.

If you read down the forum a bit there are stories of people getting banned for this.

Thats nuts I have no way of knowing where people are comeing from. I have it on a site that is about Texas Jobs what if somebody in London is looking for a Texas job I have no control over that.

ogletree, then YPN is not for you (nor me, for that matter).

ogleTree, try phpAdsNew or MaxMind. They seem to work OK and state 97% reliable.

Besides, they discount all non-US clicks.. so you don't really want to send that traffic anyways.

I get higher paying clicks on YPN but fewer clicks because the ads are so poorly targeted compared to adsense. I was just trying to point out the absurity of the fact yahoo says no non us traffic. I think what they mean is to not have a site that is geared toward non us traffic. I don't think anybody has a site that does not get non us traffic. I'm sure they have some sort of percentage they look at.

They told me that if you get non-US traffic then you need to block it.

This is pretty damn hard for someone who is not in the business of hosting their own website, and doesn't have admin access to the server, and who is using Windows server, and who has plain html pages.

Then people say the ads are non-functional for non-us clickers.

Y told me they will discount non-us clicks at time of audit.

What a pile of cr@p.

I think Adsense should sue Y for stealing adsense's customer service procedures book.

The last few days I'm getting great targetting but still the CTR is still considerably lower than Adsense. And I only show Google to international visitors.

Could the following account for it? Many times I click Google Ads by mistake because I click on whitespace that that I don't consciously "remember" causes a click. I don't know if YPN makes the whitespace clickable.

Speaking of which, I notice CTR on Google is always highest when background color is identical.
