I also see YPN significantly went down lately. I rotated AdSense and YPN on about 20 websites and while a couple of months ago YPN worked better than AdSense almost on all of my web sites, now I see Yahoo underperforms. I still keep Yahoo ads on a few of the websites just to see if it improves.

I've been running a test since April 1st. When I first changed over the larger site from Adsense the YPN income for the site was extremely high, it now seems to have decreased dramatically. I love the YPN system, but like advertisers, I have to be concerned with the bottom line. I'll do some moving and switching of codes with Adsense to see it anything changes.

We do have to take into consideration this is a holiday week and revenue may be down for that reason as well.

I'm seeing a constant yo-yo effect.

Like it will be 100/50/100/50/100/50 from day to day. Not those amounts, but that type of range, with a plus or minus of only a couple dollars. Wierd.

2 month ago, what I did in one day, now takes a week. Targeting is real bad.

targetting is killing me. i don't get clicks anymore. i'm a college student and was hoping the extra cash would help me pay for school. i been struggling to get it paying again. for the whole month of april i have been in the red. i switch back to adsense on some of my sites but still isn't breaking even. i hope yahoo makes May a good month for me. :( thank god Yahoo is paying me $4000 from March to get me by on my apartment hunting.

Vlad, I have seen something very similar to you.

It boils down to the following (for me):

1) YPN CPM seems to be down
2) The CPM is drastically down, what used to take a day to earn now takes a week
3) This has brought it in line with AS, but AS has also dropped a bit as well.
4) YPN still seems to get a low fewer clicks, but higher payout per click, with AS still being the reverse.

While April in general has been low for me, the past three days have been back up to "normal" for me, and then some. Still, unless this pattern from the past several days continues, I will be down this month from what I like to be able to expect.

YPN is earning me an easy 8x over what I make on AS. Of course, I have some sites that just still do better on AS, so I'm forced to leave them there..., but I still prefer the potential of YPN.

The past two days (today and yesterday) my earnings have increased, but still not up to where it was before.

Our traffic has been low for the last week. Anyone else seeing this? Is it due to tax time/spring break?
