I wrote a code in ASP that allows you to display Yahoo ads if the person's IP address is from the United States and allows you to display other forms of advertising (i.e. Google AdSense) if the IP address is a non-U.S. user. As many of you know, YPN! does not credit you for non-U.S. clicks.
Although most of my traffic is U.S. based (about 95%), I still want to make sure I present the YPN! ads to U.S. users only.
I need some people to test it (especialy people outside of the U.S.) before I start using it.
If you will contact me, I will give you a webpage to test it out. If you will give me feedback as to whether or not it works for you, I'll give you the code and database for free.
HOWEVER, you're going to notice a slow down on your serving of pages and an increase in CPU usage if you have a slow server. The reason for this is because all .htm files will now be processed through the dll that translates .asp instead of served directly.
If you're already going to take this step, I'd recommend using include files to reference your YPN code, instead of manually editing hundreds of pages, you just edit one snippet of code and it's updated on your site instantly.
Not sure what you mean by a "wind-up", but you don't have to be a member of YPN! to help me test the code. All you need to do is to send me an email and I'll send you to the webpage where my code is. Then, you just tell me what you see on the screen. If you are from the US, you should the the words "You are a U.S. user". If you are from outside the U.S., you should see the words, "You are a non U.S. user".
A non U.S. user will have no need for the free code for helping me out, but there are some people out there that will help out just to help out. Those are the International users I talking to.
