Its being said that Yahoo will announce its Product for small publishers in Contextual ad panel at San Jose SES.
So if the YPN launches on 8th August, who is going to test it?
For testing YPN you will have to remove all of your Adsense ads from entire website (Accoring to Adsense Policy).
For me I will surely test it. A 24-48 hour Test will not harm my earnings much. :)

is that true that you have to remove all AS code? Just thought you weren't allowed to have 2 competing contextual ad services on same PAGE.

I'll test it on a few sites. It's very easy to compair results...they better offer a big % of rev share or their program is going nowhere....they should offer 100%, just to take the marketshare.

As of I know, Google changed its policy to, you cannot have competitive Contextual ads to any page of your website.

Could try setting up a script to alternate the ads randomly, technically there are no competing ads on the page then because its not shown all the time.

Probably against the TOS in some form or another though id guess (or if its not they will make it so).

you could do that on a time based thing.. on a per session thing it may not work too well.

G ads on hour, Y ads the next.

Prob not a good idea tho... best to make another site and put Y on that.

I suspect that the Yahoo program will be much more selective of which websites they partner with and will have min traffic level requirements.

That being said I seriously doubt we would even test the waters with Yahoo after Google has been so good to us. Google has been reliable and trustworthy with us for 2 years now, that speaks volumes to us.

I'm not saying that YPN is becoming the stuff of urban legend, but where was this heard?

Because this relates to adsense, I questioned about Will Adsense publishers dump adsense ads to test Yahoo?

Hi,

One of the many things I realy hate is monopoly so I will surely test YPN for atleast 2 months on a different website with no other ad program...

But I am worried if its just 8 days away I am not sure its coming...

Lets see.

Thanks
Bye

Is there any reputable or qualified source that hints that the YPN will launch in August 8th?

Still a Yahoo topic how you phrased the topic and original post,

Anyway, I *might* test YPN it on a NEW site to see how it fares or sample it on one high volume page on an existing site and compare the data, but at this point I seriously doubt I'll be switching from tried, true and trusted AdSense which is sending big checks every month.

Will definitely sample the service, beyond that who knows.

Sure I'll test it, I still have some domain with a small "satellite project" (to push another domain) that is currently w/o ads.

Nice day to everyone with my first post here :-)

I wil also give it a try on one of my website. However I suppose the beginnings might be discouraging, as YPN wouldn't have so many diverse small and medium-sized advertisers in the first few weeks following the launch.

what is clear, is that pressure will be placed on google to give up more of the pie to publishers.

And if yahoo comes out with a clear publishers get a straight X % of the advertisers payment, that will cause google some difficulties. This secretness of googles has at least me a little miffed.

I personally feel that google has a track record of providing an excellent service in a fast responsive manner.

Compare adwords and overture for spedd of service. Its so painful to start up an overture campaign. Adwords is up and running in 15 minutes. Overture 2 days.

If the YPN is similar that will make googles job easier. I just get the impression that googles ´´back end´´ is so much more managable.

Regarding testing Yahoo adverts vs Google, why not run a random key on each pageload that would determine which sets of adverts were diaplyed? Sort of like how a site displays a random "Pic of the moment". That way you could track total loads of each version and see how they compared -- you may get an increased CTR because users would be seeing a far wider variety of adverts than if you were running with just one program or the other.

As I'm outside the US, it will be a while before I can test a method like that as it looks like YPN is US only for now, but someone stateside could.

I'll test it on one site and if it makes more than Google, then I'll try to get other sites in it.

The question right now is, will we get accepted or denied, now or when they are out of beta?!

Re: I'll never leave Google. They've been too good to me.

Any one saying that is not very intelligent. So Yahoo turns out to make us 25% more than Google does. Nice, you guys stay with Google while we all increase our earnings.

I'd like to test it but for the moment they only allow US-based publishers so I'm not able to signup.

Can anybody who has already tested it give us an idea on how well YPN performs?

Google will get dumped instantly in response to their Bourbon update. Adsense went down from $2000+ to a few bucks per month ... so no reason at all to display Google codes.

Just set up YPN on our site... home page only for now. We also run AdSense throughout the site and have done so for about two years. Just can't have competitors on the same page.

One of the key benefits with YPN is the ability to transfer earnings from YPN to Overture (Y! Search Marketing).

As far as the ad formatting options go, it is almost identical to the Google AdSense program. If you want to see actual screenshots of the YPN program, check out www.jensense.com
