Daily Revenue Delay --- Daily Audits

Isn't that was already going on.

For the last two days our revenue tally is one day behind. Couple of YPN publishers are reporting a heavy (20%) daily audit.

The question is

Wasn't this audit already done? I mean, majority of publishers have a low CTR with YPN and many attributed that to the "international traffic" discount.

Maybe YahooSarah should clarify if this "delay" and the "missing amount" is supposed to be a "glitch" in the system or not.

I totally agree. I lost 18% of my revenue on the 21st and all we have heard is everything is OK. Not OK with me.

I saw a 28% audit on mine... I have no clue whats going on.

I guess all we can do is wait and see about tomorrows stats to make a decision on whats going on...

This is were we need YahooSarah to come in and let us know what is going on. Communication is critical when you have people starting to doubt the system.

Yes I agree. Like the other poster, today is the FIRST time the real time daily value has gone down compared to the following days reported totals.

I really would like to know whats going on here before I make that one single line of code change again ... the trigger is extremely easy to pull .. thanks to well written code I might add.

Peace out ... cmon sarah - whats the dealio :)

Agreed.

I've never had a daily audit do anything more then a few dollars in terms of the final value.

I HIGHLY doubt those were invalid clicks, if they were, I'm not entitled to them anyway, but I'd like to know what is going on then...

My earnings today are not that good ...50% down ... and on top of that the 28% audit is waiting ...

We need answers.

What is going on?

I would find it pretty unlikely that a bunch of us would get such a hugh audit in one day, and it NOT be a glitch...

Oh yea,

Now you guys mention it, i only noticed why my income on 21 was low. I thought the system was not back up.

So YPN made a payout audit?

Rumor has it that that's from Yahoo forgeting to take out there cut of the earnings. Quite a few people got a 23% decrease for February 21 stats.

Yep, still a deduction in earnings.

Oh, and guess what else? It still didn't recover for me. The increased earnings was by one site, which increased a lot, while the other site increased a few cents but is still 50% down from Feb. 13th and before.

Yikes! Just checked the stats...WHAT IS GOING ON?

I'm pulling the plug on some recently added YPN pages and replacing my Adsense until this storm ends (hopefully). Want to see if I can recover the day with Adsense.

I LOVED YPN...please don't fail me.

This isn't looking good. They did a reduction of about 20% on the 21st on earnings. The 22nd my CTR fell to 2% with the same traffic. Usually CTR is 5 to 7%, which is still terrible compared to adsense.

There's a rumor I just started that Yahoo weren't previously taking a cut while the program was in beta and have now begun doing so.

Probably they saw what a huge PR success post-earnings adjustments have been for Chitika, and decided to implement it this way.
