For more info, please take a look at this post on the YSM Blog: [ysmblog.com...]
For Example, here's some stats from last month:
Sites I received at least One Click (other than Yahoo)
Sites where I received a Conversion (other that Yahoo)
Conversions as a percent
Well I guess I'm off to add another 250
That YSM blog post begins with "Your time is precious, so we’re going to try to give you some important news about blocked domains in a mere 250 words".
Humorous intentions aside, I find this disingenuous. Yahoo appreciates our time enough to spare us from reading a long post... but they don't spare us from the tiresome maintenance of blocked domains. I'd rather read a long article than manually add 500 crappy domains to a blacklist. I guess our time isn't that precious.

Come on yahoo, you know these arbitrage domains do not work for advertisers, yet for whatever reason, $$$$$$$$, you do not add the most requested feature, blocking all non yahoo domains.
Does anyone know of a way to reveal which sites our ads are appearing on? I'm using Google Analytics and use query strings to track Yahoo clicks (?utm_source=yahoo&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=whatever).
Without the query string GA won't assign all Yahoo PPC traffic to Yahoo. With the query string, you can't see which domains the Yahoo ads are appearing on.
Can I set up a duplicate GA profile that will only capture Yahoo traffic but that will show which domains my ads are appearing on? If so, how?!

Be useful to have a list - I'd happily contribute (although I suspect we might need a 5,000, not 500 block max)
