I got one of them and started to answer the questions until they started asking about my earnings using other programs like adsense and affiliates. Then I stopped. Now you have me wondering if the survey was even from Yahoo.

I believe it was from Yahoo, as I have taken a survey by this company before (for Yahoo) and actually received the $25 check from Yahoo.

Yeah I received it and filled it out. I took one before and also received the check from Yahoo.
I wonder why Yahoo doesn't use it's own address or tell us that they are doing it instead of letting us guess whether it's real or not.

I got it too. I'll ask a friend of mine who works for Yahoo. Unless a Yahoo official wants to comment?

Well the info they wanted on earnings bothered me. I'm not sure we are allowed to give out information like that according to AdSense.
I was trying Yahoo as I wanted to diversify but the difference in earnings for me was mind-boggling. Even when the targeting was right I didn't get as good a click through rate. I can't understand why.
I do hope that Yahoo can do better though as I like to have more choices.

Yeah I got one too.
I was leery about filling out the "numbers" (revealing which is prohibited by my contract with Google Adsense) so I filled in a bunch of "zeros."
I hope they dont mind.

I start filling the survey, then I got stuck in the page where they ask about the revenue. It keep asking not to use the $0.00 format. Anyone else got stuck there?

You have to drop the $ sign.

I've gotten this survey before and was paid for it.
I'll fill it out again.
I would prefer they just ask you to name five things you like and five things you dislike.
I can guarantee the #1 response on the disklikes is ad relevancy.
There are relevant ads for my website - when I look at how my website is listed in Yahoo, for the specific terms and content my site has, there are very relevant (and plentiful) ads for my topic(s) that show up.
If you visit my site, you get things like mortgage ads, which have nothing to do with my site. People aren't getting to my site because they are interested in mortgagees, they are getting to my site because they are interested in the widgets I talk about.
Said widgets do not show up in any YPN ads on my site. Said widgets do show up in ads when I go into Yahoo search and look for my site.
It's almost like Yahoo is saving relevant ads for their searches, and the ads they are serving us are completely different.
Every few weeks, I try out YPN for a few days. I don't know why Google can take a site that has never had AdSense on it, and within hours (if not sooner), it will be showing relevant ads.
Meanwhile, Yahoo, on the other hand, I can run YPN ads for days, and they still spit out the same damned mortgage ads :-(
