Probably against the TOS in some form or another though id guess (or if its not they will make it so).
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.
Because this relates to adsense, I questioned about Will Adsense publishers dump adsense ads to test Yahoo?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
