1. Ad Targeting
2. Fast crawling
3. To show ads more than one color pallet
4. Ability to edit or delete custom color pallets.
5. Link Units
6. Possibly some faster updates of reports.
Having said this, Ad targeting is number one priority for me. Presently id does some, but I need to refresh the page in order to get the right ads. How many readers will refresh the page when they go to a website? Perhaps none.
Many thanks. Please add your points and let's haelp YPN's friendly staff to imrpove faster. Yest, I say friendly, because the telephone calls and the emails were handled in the kindliest manner.
Let the description and the title of any ad be complete.
Do not accept titles or description that are not complete and have the ... sign. This does not leave a good impression on the reader.
For example. Have something like
Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms
Find information and necessary tools to help to go through your pregnancy.
Pregnancy signs and...
Find information and necessary tools to help to go through...
I am sure this will help very much.
As well... something really is going weird with YPN. One day I make more than what I thought I would in a month, then about 6 days later I barely make what I usually do in an hour or two... weird...
So... definately faster reporting and fixing of whatever crazy is going on...
For better targeting consider something like this.
Section targeting or section omitting.
For example, in the websites we have navigational sections that are not related directly to the content of the page. Let's say the article is about Heart Atack but I have a navigation anchor link to a Hair Loss page. These are not related directly.
So if you could come up with something that would say
<overture.ypn omit this - start>
Navigation and anything that is not related to the text of the page.
<overture.ypn omit this - end>
What do you think guys? This would help your crawling and indexing system to know what to crawl and what NOT to crawl.
In other words let the webmasters tell you what is the content in a page and what is not. You would end up with a closer targeting.
I am a Fastclick affiliate and they pay 20 days after the end of the month. G pays in 30. Why should Yahoo take longer? If thye want to win this, pay out in 20 days. It may sound silly (maybe mot), but getting a check on the 20th improves ones financial position before the end of the month, which is a critical time for many.
Y and G have to start treating their customers with more respect and dignity. That goes for all major corporations.
- Auto Deposit
- Real Time Stats / Channel reporting (waiting 24 hours now and could use it for testing purposes)
- Link units ( this was a big hitter on our site with Adlinks)
- Fix the bug which requires refresh to see relevent ads.
- That's it for now!
So, I think they should allow longer usernames/passwords (if they aren't permitted already) and as someone else stated, the ability to change the password. Something else may be the ability to change usernames once longer usernames are permitted (if they aren't already).
I never have wanted public service ads to show up on my pages until now. I don't care how much these ads pay, even if they are 5 dollars a click, I hope targetting improves tomorrow or it will be a quick test and back to adSense.
here's the thing. i don't mind if ypn moves slower in all regards than adsense. as long as they keep their publisher network ad system focused on quality--which is better for advertisers and, hopefully, better for publishers in terms of payouts.
I was running the 160-600 size and the YPN repesentative said that if I run a larger format the dots would not appear.
Well, they should fix this so it shouldn't matter which format I run. They should not allow longer titles, but as short a title which conforms with all the sizes. Look how Adsense does. you see a short title and a short description.
I hope this can be fixed very quickly.
