Looks like YPN is now updating Daily Balance every two hours instead of once or twice a day. Also targeting has not been woring at all.

My daily balance gets updated every 15 minutes and has been since I started.

Well this is my third day using VPN and I am not seeing my daily balance get updated except every couple of hours. Maybe the new accounts are taking longer. I just looked at my balance and here is the time stamp

Estimated as of Jan 12, 2006 at 4:00 PM PST

and it is 4:50 PM PST.

Hopefully I will get the same response that you get in the future.

Mine is updated every 15-30min most of the time. There are a few times when its been longer then that, but on rare occasions...

It is now 6:46 PM PST and the last report I got was at 4:00 PM PST. Is anyone else getting this large of a lag in reports? I just sent an email off to customer service at YPN asking why is it taking so long. I just move two of my sites over and really would like to know what is going on. Having to wait 24 hours to get real data just adds hours to the process and hours lost is money lost.

My bad, I forgot to mention that it only updates when you get clicks.

When you do get clicks, they update 15-30 minutes later, if your site hasn't had any, it won't update teh daily balance.

Well then I made a mistake moving these sites to YPN. With Adsense I got 800 to 1000 pageviews a day with at least 40 to 80 clicks a day. Most of the traffic is later in the day so we sould be seeing at least a few clicks every hour. To now go 3 1/2 hours (last report was 4:00pm PST and it is now 7:34pm PST) without a click means that there is something wrong with YPN.

If you read through the various posts on this forum, you'll see that the click through rate is very low, BUT the good thing is that the EPC is extremely high. Do some experimenting with targeting categories, and you'll easily see $3-7 dollars per click.

I switched from Google to YPN and I make 3 times what I did with Google, and the clicks have been cut in 1/4.

I mean the choice is totally up to you, but I think the generally consensus is that YPN has a higher payout even with less clicks...

Good luck!

I said I would give it a couple of days but so far the revenue (at 4:00pm PST) was half of what I would of had with Adsense. I can only hope that tomorrow I will see that the revenue is there and I have nothing to worry about.

Targeting today looks better than yesterday so we will see how it goes. One thing is with the few clicks I got the average was higher than Adsense but not 3 to 4 times like others have seen. It was about 50% higher. It could be the type of site that I have does not get the real high priced clicks. It will be interesting to see how the next few days go.

OK here is my update for anyone that is interested. Targeting gets better the longer the YPN code is on your site. YPN told me that it can take up to 5 days before the targeting is in place. Also you can use their ad blocking to get rid of the "RON" ads that do not get much activity. This also takes a few days before it take effect on the site. The conclusion is it take time before YPN starts showing any good returns so I need to be patient.

Not on my page it isn't.
Maybe there needs to be clicks on the day for that to happen...hmmm.

Daily Balance
$0.00
No activity has been recorded so far today.

That's it- nothing else.

You get that when you have no activity for the day. When you get a click it will then update and show you the time of the last update.

Mine had been updating pretty well after having it on my site for about 5 days, but suddenly today its going every 4 hours or so. I have constant traffic on my site so I doubt it has to do with when someone clicks or not.
