I have to admit I don't pay much attention to my YPN anymore since it is on such a small % of my sites.
Yesterday I checked the reports and could have sworn that I had been getting more per $ day than it was reporting. So last night I took a look before heading off to bed and this morning noticed it reported yesterdays commission as 1/2 of what it was reporting.

It's comforting to know my eyes were not deceiving me, but really irritating at the same time. I was leaving it on the sites to keep it active, but what is the use....real people are clicking (because it sure would be making more $ if there were good ads on it) and they are not even giving me 1/2 of it.

Anyone else notice this trend?

Thanks Yahoo Pete,
I'm afraid this must be a different issue. It actually goes back prior to the 24th ( I've seen it but never reported it before... the 17th is when my stats take a strange turn) Thursday was the day that it was first reported here.

I'll watch tonight and see how much the revenue drops from what is being recorded throughout the day.

Thanks Again!

Interesting reporting today...

It shows my pending balance as much larger than my daily reports total for July. Quite possibly the daily reductions are still appearing in the "pending balance" but deducted from the reporting.

Now it will just be time to see which amount we get ;)
Anyone else?

Same here. Pending balance is larger than total of daily reports. Must be total of the numbers I see in the evenings vs. the total of the numbers I see in the morning for the previous day.

YahooPete, this isn't just a glitch from the 24th. It was happening before then and it's been happening since then, too.

Todays stats are really low for this time of day.

Seems there is going to be some maintenance this evening. Interested to see how it goes.

Same here. A report said that I made $XX.00 one day and the report then next day said Zero. Didn't really hit me at the time so I let it slide. Then I noted it happened another day so the next day I took a screen shot and sent it to Yahoo. I got the typical canned answer and a promise they'd get back to me...that was over a week ago and I haven't heard from them again.

I do feel what is happening is unethical. Or, if it's a glitch, we should be notified.

I've removed their ads from my site. I hope they pay me the amount still due me.

They fixed the reporting problem, at least for my sites. However it looks as though I am still only getting approx 30% of the revenue from each click. If they are serious about keeping publishers, they need to up that percentage a lot.

I actually replaced all their links with another provider program, unless I see some amazing reports here, I'll probably not go back...at least for a while.
