I'd rather see a polished product over a rush job. Just my two cents.
They've got one opportunity to get it right. They may as well do what they can now to ensure that the ball gets knocked out of the park.

Ryan has a point there.
When YPN is launched it must leave an immediate impression that this is the best thing.
I see Yahoo being more aggressive in their auction pages to attract more advertisers. That's great, they will have more diversed product to offer to publishers.

"I'd rather see a polished product over a rush job. Just my two cents."
I agree. Better to have it come out right than half-bleeped. But, boy, it would be nice to get some news every once in a while. I bet some of the google strategists are on pins and needles.

They invited me to put up the ad script for a contest. It seems complex, with a number of coding steps involved, and overall tough to understand for non-geeks vs the Adsense script, which a kid could do. Perhaps the difficulty implementing it by those invited in the contest is delaying the release of the Y program?
Fail to understand the reason Y has seemingly made the process so tricky and tedious. Many Ma and Pa sites will likely not have the html skill and/or patience to put up the Y ads whereas with G it is so fast and easy. BIG MISTAKE, IMO.
In fact, the Y process for getting the ads online seems so cumbersome we gave up (at least for now) as it was too much effort and took too long to understand it so never did submit my sites for the contest, which deadline is fast approaching.
Anyone else observe this or was invited to do it? Other opinions on the overall difficulty vs G are welcome.

Where do you see the contest? Where do you see the deadline?
I haven't seen anything about it.

Can you share with us what makes the implementation so hard?m What is difficult?

Info about Y!Q:
How to implement:
This is completely separate from the YPN (Yahoo's version of AdSense) that everyone is waiting for, but everyone who requested information about YPN were invited to try Y!Q. Do note that you do not get paid for Y!Q, even if the visitor clicks one of the links Yahoo supplies in the pop-up.

I heard that only less than 5% of the people who applied the YPN has implemented the Y!Q in their sites for testing. What a bummer..

Where did you hear this?

Jenstar, i heard it from friends who are doing websites.
It might be true since they are not paying for the clicks, so why bother?

Was their source Yahoo? Or simply speculation?

Regarding my Msg #5 above.
Was not aware they were 2 seperate products and 2 different issues, Y!Q and YPN. Sorry if that caused confusion. Thanks for clarifying it.

Adword moves very aggresively and now they offer site target. I think they want to capitalize on the market that they still dominate. I believe the YPN should hurry up with the launch. The competitors are moving forward too aggresively.

hmmm. I should probably revise my earlier estimate. I think I'll be TWO thousand years old before YPN gets going.

Hey, Yahoo, hurry up!

...now entering the suspended animation chamber. (When I awake one million years later, will YPN be in operation?)

I have a question here for yahoosarah.
Yahoosarah what did you mean when you said earlier that Yahoo will launch the YPN very soon?
I think more than a month has passed since that statement.

Erku > I have a question here for yahoosarah.
Dont waste your time, she knew nothing about YPN.
