Moving from Adsense to YPN

Should I join YPN and if so, how long to get accepted?

I've been an Adsense publisher for years with a very high quality site until they canceled my account for an inadvertent policy violation. You can read more at the link below if you have nothing better to do ;-)

Anyway, I'm now considering YPN and would like some advice. My site receives about 40,000 unique visitors a month for an average of 80,000 page impressions (according to Adsense) and I was receiving an average eCPM of $65 with Adsense. Ya, that's an ouch on the revenue loss.

What are my chances of being accepted by YPN?
How long will the process take?
Is there any guess as to how the revenue will compare?

Thanks in advance,

Wouldn't know about that.

How long will the process take?

Took 3 days for me to be accepted. I got in at the start though.

I can only speak for myself, of course. I ran a 24 hour test 5 days ago on a handful of fairly well travelled pages. 17,000 impressions. CTR was less than 1% (actually quite a bit less but I don't want to get too specific - their targeting has always sucked). Total clicks: Less than 30. Total earnings: Less than $3.00. Maybe if I'd left them up longer.. who knows? 24 hours was about all I could take though.

I thought I'd give it one more shot. I made a pretty fair amount of money with YPN when they first came out. 3 figures daily and it remained consistent for several months. They gradually took more and more of the pie until I was earning less with them than I would with adsense. At that point it was time to go.

There are some having much greater success than that though.

We got in at the beginning and it took about a week to be accepted. I have a friend, though, who tried to get in a couple of months ago and was declined. Took about a month for her to hear anything.

We do better with YPN than with Adsense, but I think we are in the minority. Pageviews are less than with Adsense and CTR is lower but EPC is higher.

Are you kidding? That's a huge number. How can that be?
