This is why it's taking forever! So, we'll never see YPN in the near future. I could care less if they come out or not because they doesnt care anyway.

Just do Google Adsense, you are better of with them because they have tons of advertisers. The more advertisers, the higher the bids leading to more money for the publishers.

For all of you waiting for YPN, just stop hoping because you'll just be disappointed.

IMHO

Well, since it is being tested by Yahoo employees only, I am sure they would appreciate to read your comments, and put you at the top of the list for potential beta testers.

Then why do you keep posting asking about it ;)

Jenstar, i used to care about them but not anymore from now on. I am just tired of waiting and waiting just like everybody else.

Yahoo gave false hope!

False hope still made George Lucas millions when Episode 1 came out ... :P

Personally I don't mind the wait, I'd rather know they took extra time to work the bugs out than to go live with a half-ready system vulnerable to click fraud, improper counting, etc.

Hmmm... it's only been three months since they launched publisher.yahoo.com. Three months is not a long wait at all when you consider the complexity of the program they are launching.

If you are so upset over such a short wait, I suggest you tell them and not us.

Which seems to sum the situation up. Let's just wait until they are ready and concentrate on the tools we have now, rather than complain about something we as yet do not have.

In the meantime, there are plenty of other things we could be doing; new sites, new pages, the list is endless.

It appears to also being tested by those website owners who entered the Y ad implementation contest and not just by employees. In fact, testing would seem to be a good reason Y offered the contest to some of us via special email invitations.

Read Msg #5 in this thread:

Isn't that still the Y!Q contest [yq.search.yahoo.com] that you are running (it shows ads as well, although publishers are not paid for it). All people who requested information about the Yahoo Publisher Network were invited to try Y!Q.

Y!Q isn't that easy to implement (they refer to it as "five easy steps"), but the YPN ad units are very similar to AdSense implementation, quick cut and paste just where you want the ads to appear. Is it Y!Q or actual YPN ad units (their ad units are virtual clones of AdSense ad units) you are running.

ingenious response, Jenstar - hahaha ;)

my bet is that Y and G will basically split 90% of the contextual market in the next couple years, both will cover all sizes of publishers. Y already has content match deals with medium/big sites, they just underestimated the potential of small publishers a little / quite a bit.

Jenstar, did not know they were 2 seperate products and different issues, Y!Q and YPN. Sorry if that caused confusion. Thanks for clarifying it.

Have heard nothing at all from Y about YPN even though I am on their list for information. Was referring to the Y!Q contest which implemetation was quite tedious to say the least.
