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?
Yahoo is definitely not counting everything properly. Our stats have been very reliable for over 2 years, and we are receiving the same amount of traffic.
And where did all the impressions go?
Drastically underreported, as stated above.
It is hard to fathom just what is going on over there.
Are they rotating a gaggle of idiots, to ENSURE that EVERYTHING gets screwed up?
Over the months, nothing ever gets better - just worse.
How can this be?
Are they now tiptoeing into the fraud area, to hide their disastrous performance? Time will tell.
I screen captured the real time report at the end of each day and compared to the final result in the following day. If the real time report shows $10 revenue, I may only get $2-$3 in the next day's final report. I reported my problem to YPN. They do not have any explaination except that this may be adjustment of the results. But it does not make sense that the adjustment takes 70-80% off the earning. They will investigate on this but will not provide when an answer will be provided. I wonder how many websites have been affacted.
I'll watch tonight and see how much the revenue drops from what is being recorded throughout the day.
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 ;)
YahooPete, this isn't just a glitch from the 24th. It was happening before then and it's been happening since then, too.
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.
