Well first I apologize for making a previous post regarding late payment. I should had brought this very important point in it in case some one brings it up ;)

anyways like 2 week ago I receive an email saying this:
"Unfortunately, due to poor traffic quality, we have terminated your Yahoo!"

Now I know why I didn't send good traffic it was because the ads they serve on my site had nothing to do with what my site is about, specially at the end since they disable the Ad Targeting which help some what, the ads were better and closer to my site content, but they disable it anyways.

Even thou the clicks went way down and the pay per click went to adsense levels I stood with them to see if thing change, but eventually I decided to remove 90% of their ads and concentrate on the CJ which so far is doing great, then a week later after making such changes I receive the email.

I am not really mad at them because for almost 2 years they were great I made much more money with them then I did with Google at list until 2 months ago before they disable the Ad Targeting after that everything went down hill.

So I am not real interested in bashing them, all I want to know (from people that were terminated because of bad traffic) is when will I receive the payment of my last payment :)it says I should get it before 90 days will I have to way all 90 days or what.

Yikes, they just stopped our ad targeting ( although it still wasn't very targeted while I had it).

I removed most of their ads because what they were sending did not mesh well and made the site look a little...."cheap & cheesy". I'm not so sure it was due to conversions so much as I think they are really running out of advertisers. I agree...no bashing here, they were good to us as well. They can't tell us they are having a hard time...it's not good for the business they DO have!
