Going broke.. I need to get in Yahoo Publishers Network and earn money!

    Hello. I've been very broke these days. I don't have a job, and I don't have much to do at home. I decided I could manage an arcade site or some sort and earn revenue from YPN. Can anyone give me some points on where to start?

    You're gonna need to bring in thousands and thousands of unique visitors each DAY for an arcade site to make u any sort of real money. You're better offer doing affiliate marketing. Have you already been accepted into YPN?

    ^ Ditto You need tons of traffic which is going to be difficult.

    Good luck, but I don't recommend applying with an arcade site, and just relying on YPN for a source of income.

    Build a content based website, lots of content packages available here on DP, even I have got a few to offer.
    Then concentrate on promoting the site while signing up for Google AdSense. Easy to get accepted, and money should be back in your pockets if you do it right.

    you should make sites based on the traffic you have and your interests.

    As other threads have noted, Yahoo tends to have TERRIBLE ad targeting. You may get more per click, but the targeting is so bad that your click through rate will probably be VERY low. ... All that is to say - even if you get in, don't expect it to necessarily make you a killing (or even any more than Google would bring).

    you need a network of sites, that way you can use hosting effectivly.
    when you tie sites together in a network you can get bonus traffic too:)
    tie them together, try to keep designs consistent and put a 25px bar at the top linking to the other network sites.
    google adsense is still the best, but you can try popups:) (they pay well and many get around pop up blockers now)

    here are some network sites i suggest you use in conjunction: proxy, free image host, arcade, youtube vids site

    good luck!

    You have to remember the Internet is not a get quick rich scheme. You are not going to instantly earn a ton of money by throwing up a site and joining YPN. Here is what Shoemoney said recently when asked "Lets pretend that you just woke tomorrow and you have 20$ to your name and zero websites but you know what you know and you have to earn money or your family starves. What do you do?":

    I have applied to YPN and still nothing. Does anyone know any places that have targeted ads like AdSense and YPN but are not Google or Yahoo!?

    Yah, this thread is a little sad. If you don't have a job and all you're doing is trying to get quick cash, you're not going to make much of anything!
