Adsense now allows to use other contextual ads on the same page with Adsense. I and many would like to use YPN and Adsense together at the same page, but YPN TOS do not allow it.
Do you think that allowing YPN to be used with other Contextual ads on the same page would increase YPN usage and thus help to enhance the program.
I asked within the last year - but perhaps their policies have changed. However, it appears that Google is more openly accepting competing advertisers on your pages.
I talked to Yahoo today after reading that Google is now accepting. The front line person (who did not even know about this forum) said he will elevate the feedback to the management.
I hope YPN follows Adsense's lead. I think the potential ad diversity would be nice. For me, it is all YPN or all AdSense...
So far the major players allow this and this is the trend. YPN is behind so far.
Those who allow
Those who don't allow:
Even advertisers will beneft in regard that publishers will one adblock from each advertiser, and thus show the best. No MFAs no filtering, high quality.
If YPN allows this, look how many adsense publishers will like to try this option.
I don't think it's YPN's responsibility to make it simple to do A/B testing. As a serious webmaster, if you're earning enough for your feedback to be feedback that (insert any program here) should take seriously, then you should have the ability to do your own A/B testing. Hell, even wordpress owners could use the randomize plugin to get this done if they're only using one ad unit per page.
What's more, start testing contextual advertising against affiliate programs, against cost per lead programs, against cpm advertising... you should be A/B testing on your own as a business owner who wants to maximize revenue... and not waiting on Yahoo or any other company to hand you the ability.
