I've moved back to adsense completely, in fact I've just about given up on YPN. Targetting has actually gotten worse than what it was several months ago. For a second place team they seem pretty content to stay there.
Adsense is doing the inevitable thing that a middle man does. If they don't have the proper rate of expansion they start playing both sides against the middle. I think you can forget that 78% figure that is just a PR number anyway but it sits in peoples minds. They are increasing costs to advertisers and at the same time cutting payouts to publishers. I myself had my homepage volume priced by G and my profit on cut by 2/3. Now I just have selected high converting pages with them and have moved the index and slower pages to YPN.
If Yahoo made the move to fix their targeting and make the filter box function properly they could cause some major damage in the market right now.
This a call to action!
There are a lot of disgruntal Adsense publishers that would start the migration now. There is a glitch in the Matrix and it should be capitalized on.
So don't be sitting there smiling and just sucking down the fat money. There is a great opportunity at the moment(not that there wont be more).
As a popular comic says:
