Very low CTR

    I don't get it. I have YPN on a site that the ads are as relevant as when I have Adsense on it but I only get under 1% CTR with YPN compared to like 8% for Adsense. It's frustrating because the clicks pay WAY more with YPN then with Adsense on this site, but the low CTR doesn't equate to much money!

    Is anybody else getting much lower CTR with just as relevant ads?

    My CTR varies so much it's as if my websites fade in and out of the twilight zone.

    This is the same thing I have been talking about since April 1.

    My ctr is the same, but my EPC has plummeted. It is just like a smart-pricing system has now kicked in on YPN...... just like happened with AdSense.

    My AdSense EPC went from $1 average to 3 cents, YPN has done the same, for me for a month now, and it seems to be getting worse instead of better. I have had falling EPC since April 1, it's been 33 days now, and still horrible or even worse.

    Yes, i am seeing the same thing as well. LAst two days was horrible.

    I think ypn smartpricing is here for me. I have been a publisher since november. Although each months revenue is climbing, but thats mostly because traffic climbed and clicks gone up.

    So, in order to stay with this game, one needs to get AS MANY CLICKS AS POSSIBLE. :)

    I agree with you my earnings for the past 2 days are wayy low and for me i think i got some smart pricing or whatever its called so lets see what happens in the future to see if this is going to stay or leave. I hope everything returns to normal soon.
