just wanted to know if all clicks from outside of the u.s. are not being counted like clicks from the u.k.,
I use pay per click on some of my pages and wanted to know if I should only avertise in u.s. only.

Yes, if your main income source is YPN, you will want to advertise in the US, because Yahoo currently only credits clicks that are made from within the US.

If Yahoo! won't credit clicks from outside the U.S., why am I seeing YPN ads for Vonage Canada and "Brazil Calling Card"?

Not having the practical means to exclude foreign visitors from viewing YPN ads, I had removed YPN ads from all of my site pages except for one page of no interest to foreign visitors whatsoever.

Then, a few days ago, I got my first YPN click on that page. Made some money, decent EPC, too. Yahoo!

So, now I am emboldened to place YPN ads on more of my site's pages, again pages that should be of interest to U.S. visitors only.

But what if a stray visitor from Canada or Brazil clicks on those Canada and Brazil ads?

Is Yahoo! maybe moving away from its strict U.S.-only policy?
