YPN Small Publisher Income Survey



6:44 pm on Dec 12, 2005 (gmt 0)

I'd like to collect the following information from YPN publishers who make $1,000 or more a month and have less than 5,000 unique visitors a day. I hope that the information will benefit small publishers like myself.

1) How long did it take you with YPN to reach $1,000 or more a month?

2) How many unique visitors does your site get per day?

3) How much do you earn per day on average?

4) What is your CTR?

5) Did you switch over from AdSense?

5b) If yes, how much more or less is your YPN income?

6) How many ad's do you display on your site?

7) What type of targeting do you see and use on your site?

7b) Do you often see RON ad's on the site?

8) Is the targeting accurate?

9) (optional) What niche, without revealing the address, does your site serve?

I forgot to add,

10) How many sites is the above information spread across? (Still limited to 5,000 unique visitors a day total)

I would like to say that I am one of the people who would be in this category after this month (right now I'm on target for more than enough).

1) This is the first month on YPN with this site.
2) Not going to say.
3) Around $40, but anywhere from $30-$50 depending on the day.
4) Not going to say.
5) Yes.
5 b.) Anywhere from $20-$30 more per day.
6) Depends on the page, but definately 3 or less.
7) Good targetting after banning some RON ads and selecting an ad targetting category, but could use some work as I have stated in numerous other threads.
7 b) See above.
8) See above.
9) Good luck with getting an answer from anyone on this.

As with all surveys..

Thanks but no thanks.

Nothing personal but that's just a little bit too much information to be splashing on a public page. My girlfriend doesn't even know that much... nor will she.

Will a bear poop in the woods?
Will a chicken cross the road?
Is there balm in Gilead?

Some questions must be treated as rhetorical only.
Most folks do not want to divulge such information, especially the ones doing very well.

Some of my pages that I have switched from Adsense get targeted ads after blocking in ALL and I mean all, RON ads I could find. Other pages just wouldn't show targeted ads now matter what,( and nothing on the catagory lists were specific enuf for me to chose). So those pages get switched back to Adsense after about 2 days.

So all this makes it a lot of bother...but I have been picking the pages that seemed to have the lowest paying Adsense ads to try YPN on, a few at a time. Some of those pages have done pretty well w/ YPN ads.
Targeting seems to be the main issue for me. And more ad invetory too, but that will get better over time I'm sure.
