A Call for a YPN Adviser

This is what YPN needs...

Many of us have questions about the current BETA release and the upcoming release of YPN. It would be more than appreciated if an adviser from YPN could come in a read the forums and post once in a while to give their answers on what the webmasters are talking about here and to give advise onto how we can improve our earnings.

Maybe if we all throw them an email concerning this they will get one here ASAP, because it is greatly needed...

I check in on these boards and am here to help if you have specific questions about YPN.

Wow, that was a surprise. A nice one at that.

Very high marks for you guys so far across the board from me except for targeting. Any idea when they will work out the targeting bugs?

Thanks and welcome.

Is there a timeframe to allow Canadian (or international) webmasters into the program? My traffic is mostly from the US, but I live in Canada. I received an invite already, but the TOS said "US only", so I didn't complete the signup.

I agree with the targeting.
Everything else is so wonderful about YPN.

Here is my perfect senerio.
AdSense Targeting & CTR (Better targeting, better CTR)
net 30 pay(I have been told YPN will go to net 30 soon)

Wish list:

Continue working on the targetting

Work on that Net-30 payment

Move out of beta asap so clicks from outside usa definitely count

Things that are great:
User interface is easy to use - you get a B+

15 minutes stats updates are nice (especially having the time of day)

Best thing is that you don't allow ads on computer generated pages - this should cut down the YPN spam by 90%.

EPC is very good.

Thanks for Responding YahooSarah.

It's nice to see Y! does have a team on the ground to discuss issues with us. However, over the passed week there have been some questions which need to be answered from Yahoo! which no one has...

1. Is it OK to show ads to non-Americans? If so, please change the TOS.

2. Why use language="javascrit" instead of type="text/javascript" when type="text/javascript" is 'more correct' and doesn't break strict XHTML?

Please also tell us of any improvements which are being made or what we can look for in the very-near future?

Very cool.
I got the follow-up phone call today from Yahoo!, and mentioned this site and this posting.
Guess they already have a rep here.

My only negative analysis to the rep on the phone was----
Yeah, you guessed it!
Relevancy, or lack thereof.

He asked if I like the payment terms, and of course I couldn't answer, as I've gotten no clicks, let alone any income.

I'll remain optimistic that they will get much better at some point.

Hi All,

Thanks for the welcome and the feedback. In regards to YPN beta:

-targeting will improve as we learn from this beta period and focus on making improvements and enhancements along the way (this is a priority)

-payment cycle has just been reduced to 30 days (previously was at 45 days to get paid)

-each month we continue to expand the amount of publishers in our beta program, but I can’t say when we plan to roll out a general release

-currently our beta is limited to US publishers and will only pay for human clicks from within the US, as our terms and conditions explain

-expanding YPN to markets outside of the US is on the roadmap for 2006 and we’ll keep you posted on that

Sorry for the delay but hope this was helpful.

Thanks for the info YahooSarah yes it was helpful. I never relized we only get paid for US clicks.

Yahoo Sarah..if you have speculation on this thought..

How come all the ad serving networks go for a general release, if it just gets to a perfect balance of supply and demand then we all get a large cut of the pie right?

But if the supply of publishers is huge, advertisers pay less don't they? Then Yahoo makes the same, and publishers get less.

Beta is rocking my profit margins.
