When I called this morning it was news to the support person that anything was wrong.
Why they don't have a little message box on the home page that can show system status and notification of upgrades is beyond me. So what if it is beta - it ain't monopoly money (monopoly money is reserved for Google search system).
I must have wasted an hour today checking the stats to see if it is fixed and another 1/2 hour checking the forums.
It really worries me about this 'bubble' they have in place. Making 3+ dollars a click is a little... off the wall. However when CTR is as low as it is it's not much of a total upgrade from Adsense.
Oh well... still love Y! and will support them until they ban my sites..
Yahoo is probably trying to save bandwidth by not reporting to all you compulsive earnings-checkers. :)
I've got the best cure for the YPN blues, though, and suggest it for everyone.
When I come here, I ALWAYS read the webmaster world Adsense forums, first.
That way, when something stupid happens, like . . . I'm getting $1+ epc but just can't track my stats for a couple of days, I feel A WHOLE lot better about it. :)
At this point, I think I'de rather go with clicksor or chitika in non contextual form + a decently converting banner or something than adsense.
I think if yahoo! can keep up the fantastic job it's doing with customer service, and not let the epc drop to far, they can take back MAJOR market share, not just for ppc advertising, but search, hosting/registration, media, news and whatever else they're doing.
Personally I've been talking up Y! for the last month now everywhere I go online, and it seems like people are becoming REALLY displeased with G. If I was making enough to invest in the stock market, I'de at LEAST go short with Y! for the next several months.
