Yahoo is planning to launch on Wednesday an ad network for small Web publishers intended to strengthen its hand against rival Google, a source familiar with the plan told CNET News.com.
Yahoo's new service will differ from Google in that it will add human editorial to the selection of ads for content pages. In comparison, Google's service relies on technology.
My point here is I don't belive that Google is fiddling with the Smart Pricing and payouts just because YPN is coming. For those of you who notice this its just a coincidence, an example of humans assigning significance to random events.
It would be a serious limitation, if they are limiting only to US based publishers...because it is in the initial stages that their payouts will be very good and most of us will be missing out.
I have been seriously waiting for YPN to roll out..since they took quite a bit of time in launching YPN..i assumed the roll-out when it happens will be full fledged..but looks they they are very slow....unfortunate :(
Any other news from them yet? Its already wednesday for me here...waiting for official news and see what exactly is coming out.
I'd love to see how quickly they can scale this globally without getting too many accountants, lawyers and local egos involved.
Wonder how the commisioning / revenue allocation would work .. would the local Yahoo's get credit for YPN revenues if they roll this out globally?
Can hear the laughter emanating from GPlex as I write...
My guess is that they'll give huge revenue share to the sites that fit their bill well so that some will speak very highly of them.
THREE CENTS PER CLICK?
Holy smokes! I'm sure glad that is not the norm at Adsense. But,if that is all you get with the well established and heavily competitive Adsense, I dare say you will get nothing better at Yahoo. Instead of sitting around waiting for more competition, you really should have been spending your time more wisely.
Have you considered changing your content to something more productive? I mean... we are in this to make money. Your statement proves that, at least where you are concerned. If what you are doing doesn't make you even decent money, why stick to it? Seems logical to me that you would learn something new, expand your horizons, and earnings.
I have always told people to 'go with what they know' when it comes to making money on the web. But, if it won't keep the wolf away from the door, then by God man, learn something new.
