Page Not Found Second Time This Occured Jay718
So today I decided to update my content on my site and in the process I accidently clicked my ads but aside from me hitting my ad.....when it was hit it said page not found.Is this the reason why my revenue has been low because of a error in the network.Because if that happen to me then that must happen to my users as well.This also happen to me a couple months ago.If a Yahoo Rep can please explain to me why that happen I would feel ALOT better.
It happened a few weeks ago to me as well.
In my case it was a foreign website from Tokelau (.tk extension) that was taking up a good deal of my ad impressions.
YPN's quality and performance needs to be improved in this regard as this can hurt both YPN and publisher earnings. YPN needs to:
1) Screen domain name extensions and filter them out at the advertiser level (as long as the network is in non-international mode).
2) Periodically ping and test the landing page to determine if it contains real content. Those that fail should be flagged and the advertiser notified and/or kicked out of the network.
I agree with you 100%. Stuff like this only makes the network look bad and perform poorly for publishers.
