earnings stuck again

 4:22 am on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

looks like earnings are stuck again my last update was at 545pm, anyone else notice this problem.

Yeah, it's been way behind today. Hopefully that is the reason for the horrible earnings. Yesterday was the same way and never caught up to the normal Wednesday.

Even with the YPN stats of the current time posted (6:30PM PST), it still doesn't add up to even 1/2 the usual earnings at that same time on any other given day, even Saturday, my worst days.


 6:13 am on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

I'm totally feeling it with you:

I've had the WORST EPC I have ever had my entire time with YPN today and yesterday.

I hope thier technical problems can account for this, otherwise its NOT a trend i want to see continuing.


 7:48 am on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Surely not the trend I want either james, especially since February, up until Wednesday, was the best month epc wise yet for me.

Now I just hope it can get back to 'normal'.


 7:49 am on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Agreed, I had my best day ever, Tuesday...


 7:56 am on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Will they even credit the clicks we got today


 8:04 am on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

I dont usually get very many clicks but for the past 2 days I have gotten 0


 8:04 am on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

They have always credited us for the clicks when the stats dont update, so I dont see why it would be any different today...


 8:31 am on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

#*$!? I have ZERO - NONE - ZIP - Targeted ads, they are ENTIRELY all RON...

Yahoo needs to get back to normal, my earnings are taking a SERIOUS hit...


 10:44 am on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

I'm not too sure if my ads are any worse than usual. My website is somehow related to Valentine's Day, so I can see a huge earnings increase for Feb. However, the huge drop off doesn't really compute.

Even on other days I normally make around twice as much.. it's crazy. Also, Valentine's Day was horrible considering that I got about 'normal' earnings on the day when I got twice as much traffic than usual.

So, twice as much traffic = 0 increase in earnings for me. And the traffic was definately legit... well, the only difference was that more traffic came from Yahoo than Google. Which is somewhat unnormal, but looking at the keyword phrases, it is quite usual for this site considering the holiday.

I just don't get it really. Perhaps advertisers dropped off quickly after Valentine's and the other advertisers have yet went back to restore their positions from earlier this year? That's really the only explaination I can come up with.

But then again, YPN is beta and crazy things like this have happened before where earnings would go way down for 2-3 days, maybe longer, then magically go up again.

I'm hoping it's the same as before.

Same story here. For a few last days I am getting just about 60% of what I had last week (the number of the ad impressions did not change). Also I do not see any statistics for yesterday.


 2:43 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Not showing anything yet for today. Also, when viewing reports (last 7 days, month to date), there's not data showing for yesterday.

When I say 'no data', I don't mean it shows 0, that date doesn't show up at all, as if we were still the 16th.



 2:43 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Same here, but worse then usual. Since about 10 AM yesterday, my earnings are pretty much stuck, yet the clock is moving (usually both are stuck) . Is everyone else experiencing the same thing?

Also, I just noticed that the earning have started moving as well, but extremely slow, so according to Yahoo stats, in the past 24 hours we've only made around 3% of the daily average. Sincerely hope this is just a glitch with stats and will get fixed soon. Our traffic is the same as usual and the ads are as targeted as they usually are.

This is stressful :(


 4:04 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

My earnings are god awful today.

I am at a 2000% decrease from what I'm usually at, at this time. No, that's not a typo. 2000%


 4:21 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

No joke, mine dropped to 1/10th of what they were. Literally.


 4:40 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Not only did we make $25 dollars only yesterday (usually our sites make a total of $150 per day), but today will go down in the history as our lowest ever ... less than 1 dollar so far.



 5:21 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Exact opposite here. Up until wednesday Feb was the slowest month yet. Then bingo - on wednesday near record earnings... thursday record earnings and today looks even better (considering it is a friday).

CTR is down by about 30%/revenue up 100% - go figure.

As I've mentioned previously.. I love bad targeting.


 5:36 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

I make anywhere from 800-1400 on a normal day, and I made barely over 100 yesterday...


 6:20 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Earnings for yesterday still aren't being reported on YPN.


 8:11 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Earnings for yesterday just showed up for me, lowest numbers ever.


 8:16 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

0.65 cpm! OUCH!


 8:32 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

same here, been with YPN for 2 months now...a couple of earnings dips for 2-3 days here and there and then yesterday and complete drop, from $1200 /- a day to $350, today is looking the same....be interesting to see what the deal is...


 8:33 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

I have a program that tracks clicks on the Yahoo ads. The program was down for about 8 hours so I have 16 hours of data. For those 16 hours I am showing 33% more clicks then what Yahoo is showing. Either Yahoo has filtered 33% of my clicks or they didn't credit me for all my clicks yesterday.


 8:48 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

doclove, how accurate is it usually? and also may I ask what program you are using (sticky me if you have to)


 9:06 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Just saw the earnings for yesterday. About 40% of what it normally is! And for today, I am barely up to 6% of what I usually get by this time of the day.

Really hope YPN fixes this.


 9:15 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

same boat - epc has tanked to a stunning all-time low; (been with YPN since last september).


 10:48 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Earnings are stuck again today for me. 7:45am still...


 11:04 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

still stuck on 5:30 a.m., and it's after 3:00 p.m. right now... earnings yesterday were the worst ever, except for maybe today, lol.


 11:28 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

Has anyone else contacted YPN, or are we just sitting here whining? We need them to know about the problem.


 11:33 pm on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

I must apologize to all of you. It appears my daily total may have caused an integer overflow and broken the whole system :)
