Ideas, knowledge, or rumors?

I am a little tired of waiting, but what the heck-they don't much care about a single voice. :)

I can't even give them a decent trial run on my large site because it is so global and I feel it would not make any money to speak of if foreign clicks are all discounted.

Anyone else who has this problem?

(At present I am happy with adsense but would like to run both, on dif pages, to give it a real trial.)

I asked them this very question a couple of days ago and the response was they did not know when it would come out of beta. They really don't know or just aren't telling.

Thanks, Ember.

I wish I knew but alas *sigh*

Let's just say that if YPN went international now, no one would make over $1 a day. The advertiser side is in poor shape, either because not many people wanting to go Beta or because they just don't trust Yahoo yet.

My earnings have been dropping more and more over the course of a year (I was in the first bunch of people accepted) which coincides with the amount of people joining. Just last week when YPN was having ad serving problems to certain IP groups, my earnings went up due to getting the higher paying ads which ran out quickly earlier, now that the IP issue is solved, down goes the $$$.

It's probably still good in a few areas, but mine has dropped a ton over the past year.

Its about time to s--t or get off the pot. People who are interested now may soon start to look for greener pastures and not look back.

Being careful is one thing but it seems they are taking it to extremes.

It appears more like they are lost, rather than careful. It's a bit lame at this point really.

You would think with ad rev worse than expected they would be really concerned with getting this out. Can anyone remind me when they had planned on starting this program initially?

Dosent overture belong to Yahoo? If it does then they do have lot of advertisers already. I think Google to start off did not have advertisers?
