Publisher is under-reporting impressions and clicks by about 40% for the last two days. Our earnings have dropped about 60%. Anybody else seeing this?

Payment per click is about back where it was and targeting seems a little better. Keep it up, YPN....

Back to where it was "when"? Last few weeks or 2 months ago?

Thanks!

Back to where it was just before all the ads disappeared several days ago. Our payment per click has stayed fairly steady since YPN implemented "smart pricing" several weeks ago.

I finally gave up yesterday. 22 months - some great and most awful. No more YPN for me :(

Next Adsense competitor pleeease.

Looks like another true success story by Yahoo!

Sorry, I could not resist. :-)

In unrelated news I can verify that a new domain/web hosting registration may currently need to wait up to 8 days to get a working MySql database with Yahoo

A new domain and hosting is up almost instantly which is A++ but if you require the database as well you might need to wait right now.

These types of problems tend to get fixed quickly, they're business killers, I doubt it drags on much longer.

p.s. I just checked the stock market and my not so favorite stock dropped a dollar on Friday too, wait, thats not Yahoo stock... it's cyber zero something or other.

Yahoo fixed the problem. The targeting is MUCH better.

Eeverything is back to normal again. thanx Yahoo.
I think when we see some problems with yahoo we all speek and when there is some thing good there are very few responses. this is not fair.

This has been going on for me for over 2 weeks now. I finally cut YPN! off the site and am moving to full CPM because of it.

I used to be a big promoter of Yahoo, I will still atest to great customer service as the people were awesome.

If I was still using it I would have been promoting again, but I'm a little gun shy now....it's too soon to say anything is better or worse. Who really knows?

It took a lot of work to remove the ads and implement new ones that are consistently bringing in money, the ads look better and the tracking is even more usable.

With their new "smart pricing" it just doesn't work. The ads weren't targeted or well written enough to create enough clicks to make the rev. cut worth while. If I got as many clicks with Yahoo as I do with the other, I would most certainly give it a try again...but for now...I just need stability, and two days isn't long enough for me.

In Texas we quit trying to ride a dead horse when it's...uh, dead.

I've got to applaud those who stuck it out this long...
As for me, I quit 3 months ago and haven't regretted it.

Hopefully someday all will be working well again and we can give it another try.
