My YPN account is still active. I logged in a few days ago just to see if they'd booted me yet for inactivity but they hadn't. Out of curiosity I put a few pages online with YPN ads to see what the targeting looked like. No ads showed at all. After 3 hours the ads still weren't showing and I pulled them and wrote it off as a failed experiment. I considered emailing Yahoo support and trying to find out why this had happened and then realized I didn't really care.
I'd also be curious to understand the types of sites you're working with (ecommerce, informational, etc.), and the verticals that perform best for you.
I've been thinking of doing more with YPN again, but am just hesitant to do that work again....
Our suggestion with sites that have long content pages is to place about 5 ads on a page. Try two or three adsense ads and two or three pubcenter. In most cases we see a substantial increase in overall earnings.
I did a trial of YPN which I'm just winding down.
I put it on a subsection of a popular site that really earns with AdSense to see what it would do and although YPN got many thousands of page views per day the earnings kept going in half per month.
For instance, the first month it made $500 easily in the test area, not a lot of money but it was worth expanding the test. Wrong move, the next month it declined to $400, then $300, etc. until last month it made $30 on the same traffic, same pages.
Yesterday I got busy and started replacing YPN and today some of those pages earned more in a single day than YPN did last month, so buh-bye YPN, you got to go.
