you guys are not kidding right? You are actually seeing an improvement?

My horrible earnings haven't changed at all.

Yes, how long has everyone been using YPN? I used it for a few months and did way better than Adsense; then, it took a dive and stayed there.

I keep looking for the right time to dive back into it. I am hoping someone is in the same boat and can verify that now is that time.

Now is 100% NOT the time. Earnings are awful. moved 80% back to AS.

I've moved back to adsense completely, in fact I've just about given up on YPN. Targetting has actually gotten worse than what it was several months ago. For a second place team they seem pretty content to stay there.

Oh well...

I've been with AS for about 2.5 years and had declining revenues the past 6 months. Have only been with YPN for about 6 months and saw my revenue shot up 3x what AS was making for me.

After experimenting with YPN on all sites I found that only three of my sites do really well while the others just cannot get much clicks and reverted them back to AS.

I own about 14 sites and the earnings from the tree sites are 3x that of the other 11 sites.

Adsense is doing the inevitable thing that a middle man does. If they don't have the proper rate of expansion they start playing both sides against the middle. I think you can forget that 78% figure that is just a PR number anyway but it sits in peoples minds. They are increasing costs to advertisers and at the same time cutting payouts to publishers. I myself had my homepage volume priced by G and my profit on cut by 2/3. Now I just have selected high converting pages with them and have moved the index and slower pages to YPN.

If Yahoo made the move to fix their targeting and make the filter box function properly they could cause some major damage in the market right now.

This a call to action!

There are a lot of disgruntal Adsense publishers that would start the migration now. There is a glitch in the Matrix and it should be capitalized on.

So don't be sitting there smiling and just sucking down the fat money. There is a great opportunity at the moment(not that there wont be more).

As a popular comic says:

"Get er in n' get er done!"
