Has anyone else received something like this and if so was there a long time-delay in hearing back from Yahoo? The email from them was unsolicited -- so I'm wondering if perhaps it wasn't the real thing.
Yes it was from Yahoo.
The reason I'm thinking that is the site they have approached me over is a destination information site (3 countries only) and we don't sell deals etc, though I'd say we'd be a good portal for Yahoo to push their deals onto.
What is more interesting is that Yahoo lists the ad rates in the Travel Submit pages as being:
Car Rental$ 0.42
Destination > Attractions/Activities$ 0.20
Destination > Events$ 0.20
Rail, Ground Transport, and Ferry$ 0.42
Vacation Packages$ 0.57
Vacation Rentals$ 0.57
Now even if they offered a split above what Google (may) pay with Adsense -- let's say 70% -- that still compares rather poorly to similar earnings through Google.
Of course I could be right off in why they approached me - wait and see I guess.
anyone face drop in organic lisings in travel or hotel related industry, since yahoo launced their own travel?
After being comfortably placed in the #1 position for the past 3 years, my travel site just took a hit of about 6 places. This seems to have been about the same time.
1: We just had an update
2: No one stays #1 forever.
3: Did you say you got replaced by Yahoo, another aff, or a scraper?
4: So are you #2?
5: Nobody's entitled to first place, we all have to pass the guitar and let someone else sing at some point...
6: You may be back next month, bad weed is hard to kill off
