In my limited testing of YPN (Yahoo Publisher Network) I have noticed that the ads default to commercial ads of very generic variety (i.e. ISP offers, loans, online degrees) when the page has not yet been spidered.

This is, IMO, a good thing (as long as other options to deal with defaults are made available).

As far as I know there is only internal testing. I am commenting from the outside after limited observation of a Yahoo insider's test case.

Thats not very surprising as they are a very new service being developed. They probably have not built up a large database of potential advertisers as of yet.
