In the Webmaster World thread

[webmasterworld.com ]\

it was suggested that YPN is, compared to Adsense, relatively MFA free (er, MFY--Made for Yahoo--free).

Is this what other people see? Is YPN relatively free of garbage advertisers whose only aim is to arbitrage YPN traffic?

Maybe that YPN is MFY-free is something that Yahoo! should publicize as an advantage they have over Adsense.

Get-rich-quick types follow the money, and if more of the money goes to YPN, the MFYs won't be far behind.

I'm suggesting that if YPN is MFY-free as a policy, whether enforced algorithmically or through a more careful vetting of publishers and their websites, that is a competitive advantage and maybe something Yahoo! should brag about.

YPN doesn't care about MFY sites or the deceptive practices they discuss on their blog. This is evident after months of reporting sites violating their TOS, in many cases blatantly, without repurcussion or even fear of repercussion.

There's entire industries built around it, the big ones at the moment being myspace resource sites.

I have reported dozens of MFY and other trash sites and seen only a couple of results. [snip]

I have seen some MFYs. I have also seen a few guys buying adwords that go directly to the MFYs. The only reason why people haven't seen too many MFYs is just because there isn't many people using YPN right now.
