I say bad because I have been with YPN since the begining and it was great, I was making on average high $xx,#*$! a month with them... until they started being gready! now I only make on average low $x,#*$!! Less clicks because I got punished and got my ad targetng taken away when it specifically says on YPN's site and I quote...
"How do I pick an ad targeting category?
Choose the categories and sub-categories that you believe your site visitors will find most appealing. These will most likely be related to the content of your web site or the demographics and profile of your user base."
Well apparently NOT! That is exactly what I was doing.. and I got punished... they don't care... I made over 300k last year with them and they don't care! If I was doing something wrong then why not kick me out?!?!?! Instead sitting there hoping things would get better but it don't...
One other thing I find very wierd with them is this...
I have several sites that are basically the same type of sites, one site would get 300 clicks with about $50 and the other site gets 300 clicks for $20... same type of ads, same placement (just different color)and those differences. you tell me whats wrong with this picture?
yea they pay about the same as google now.. if you look in this forum from past posts people talking about how YPN was going to be just like google and most people would say no... I say yes and it's happening now!
I understand conversions being a concern for advertisers, but damn give me a break why punish publishers for something we do not have any control over? are we holding the users hand clicking? Are we telling them to click? Are we putting a gun to thier heads and telling them to click? NO! (well I don't)
My suggestion is stay with Google or find another company!
