No stats after putting up ad for over one hour

 3:16 am on Sep 8, 2005 (gmt 0)

One hour ago I just inserted yahoo ad code into my page and one hour passed, I have not seen any stats report even no impression. How long dose the stats delay?

You will see any earnings in the top right in the control panel, but you need to wait until it updates after midnight to see data for impressions/channels/etc.

nope, 4hrs passed, everything is Zero.

How come?

daily earnings stats are updated once an hour or so, CPMs every night.

Not even an hour for me. More like only 3 times the entire 24 hours. Definitely NOT "on the fly".

There'd be nothing wrong with once a day. Its what everyone on Amazon has been used to forever.

Sure, there's nothing wrong with once a day. Or even once a month. But if you're a competitor playing catch-up -- which YPN is to Adsense -- then you'd want to have better even superior features to expect to win some market share. Timeliness of traffic reports may not be at the top of the list in the most important features folks running contextual advertising, but it sure is good to have :o)

The first few hours may be serving PSA ads which don't pay anything. Give it time.

Once a day, in the beginning of any trial, is too little too late. In order to make a adjustments you need to know NOW how things are working.

I run 4 adservers on my network, and if any one of them only reported my complete stats once a day, I would pull them. Time is money, and I need to know now if it is working, can be tweeked immediately to work, or if it is a wash. I'm not willing to sacrifice very much revenue for a beta test to begin with. So without 100% real time stats, and the fact that their FAQ on payments is contradictory, I am glad we were not one of the chosen few for beta. If it doesn't get better, we won't bother in the fall when they contact us post-beta.
