Wow, haven't been over here in a while. Good luck to you in the UK, hopefully it will be better there than here in the US :)

good news, I've registered yesterday, got an email saying ...our editors will need to review your site...'.

Inserted code to my website - some targeted ads from the start, some adshark.com ads of them selfs... lets wait and 'count' :)

my site gets about 85% UK visitors

Yeah, good luck. Targeting is spotty for US publishers.

Registered 3 days ago, code is in my website - ads are showing as I've said before. But no impressions were counted on my control panel and no replay from adshack...

Strange that UK publishers are not talking about Adshack also :)

Don't you find it peculiar that Adshack, registered in 2004 with Godaddy, does itself not mention anything on its own web site about Yahoo ads ?

Are you all sure this is YPN in the UK and not just a third party reselling yahoo's content match feed with their own targetting system? Kind of what companies like Nixxie have been doing for years.

I clicked and clicked again. It doesn't look like Yahoo is running it.

From the About page: "AdShack.com is owned and operated by 1plus.net Ltd."

The Yahoo mention on their site says "Syndicated Yahoo Advertisements".

Chitika has started mixing in YPN/Overture ads with their offerings about 3 months ago. (Actually, I am quite pleased with the results...)

Still no responce from Adshak... 6 days gone... ads are showing (so I guess we are earning some money for them, 'cos ads are well targeted - from yahoo), but no impressions on my account...

YPN does not work well here in the U.S. Hopefully it works better in the U.K.

today my website was visited by someone from "Yahoo Europe Operations (217.12.14.240)" - looks like adshak does have something with Yahoo :)

Still no email or response.

I visited the other websites that they're linked to, they're all pretty similar and they all look incomplete as many links do not appear to do anything

curious

Often third party resellers of yahoo feeds have to get sites on their network approved by yahoo. That has been my experience with various 3rd party resellers in the past.

I signed up last week, ads showing charity ads and the like, no impressions being recorded and so far no reply whether I've been approved or not.
I could do with this, as I have a couple of gambling related websites which I can't put adsense on.
