I'm not one to post every ebb and flow of publisher income, but todays income is just insanely high, not just for a Saturday, but for any day.

Saw that they had an upgrade/update scheduled for last night until early this morning...do you think this could be what is happening...anyone else seeing these changes?

I am seeing the same thing. I typically have 1/2 the traffic on Saturday as I do on Friday, but I am already seeing revenue 2x what I saw on Friday, and its only 9 am PST. This is the highest Saturday I have on record so far and no unusual traffic numbers. I hope this is a new trend.

As do I, I just wish I could see the channel results to see what is happening :) Not complaints here though!

I see very low earnings today. But I expected this because Saturdays my site doesn't do well.

Beginning of March was so-so but has gotten worse. This week was a terrible week. Very disappointed!

Now I have had no revenue updates since 1:30pm and it is now 5:30pm. For weeks I get updates at least every hour if not sooner. The last time it did this is when they broke something. Anyone else seeing this?

I think some of you need to take a deep breath and take a step back. My earnings are completely normal, and it's a Saturday. Remember, traffic won't always be the same. As well, it's spring break in a lot of places and spring is coming up, meaning weddings, vacations, etc. So your traffic/earnings could go down a bit because of this (or vice versa).

As for it not updating, YPN doesn't always update right away. It sometimes skips a few hours then catches back up. Just wait until tomorrow morning to make your judgements (or better yet.. wait a few days).

Been part of the YPN program since January 10, 2006. Had my ups and downs but it is now 7:25PM and I have not had an update since 1:30pm. The only time this has happen before is when they had their breakdown a few weeks ago. All I was asking is anyone else seeing this issue. Remember this is a beta and betas are based on getting feedback.

When I see a **50% decline** in earnings the last ***two weeks***, I have to chime in. Since "the glitch", my earnings did NOT recover. They came close but nowhere near expectations.

I'm at the point where I will be moving over to other vendors unless the situation improves the next few days.

From a historical reference point, since I joined the program two quarters ago, earnings are now down some 80%. That is not something to take lightly and "take a deep breathe".

Yes, saturday is at least double what it normally is.

Also, Sunday seems to be continuing like this.

I'm also seeing much different ads than normal. It's possible that a new advertiser group has just been added to Yahoo or the algorhythms have changed a little to display different ads that happen to be high paying in our case. That's my guess anyway.

Another YPN publisher. Ranging between 70,000-150,000 pageviews/day. We have seen significant declines in eCPM from YPN during the past month, and are returning a majority of our impressions to Adsense.

I have also seen a slight increase the past couple of days. This month I have experienced a 33% drop in income compared to past months.

Well yesterday was my best day ever. Of cource two days ago it was one of my worse. YPN has made changes and I think and hope that these changes take time to ripple through our websites. The next week will be interesting to see if there really is an improvment that sticks.

YPN its a rollercoaster, somedays is pretty good, somedays it lowers. but the avergae remains the same in my case. we have to remember that it also depends on how much money the advertisers are bidding on each keyword etc.

For the second day my YPN revenues are all time low. Anybody had real revenue drops in the last two days?

Well my last three days have been some of my best but also my traffic is really improving so I think it has to do more with traffic than YPN. There are so many things that can effect revenue and this is still a beta. All I know is I am more optimistic this week than I was last week.
