Very low impressions reported

    Anyone else noticing this since the "revamp"? I got 50% less impressions, CPM is way higher to make up for it, but what is the reason for the very low reported impressions?

    Are the ads not showing as much?

    i have seen something like that. ill have to check but i wonder if they are now counting 1 visitor as 1 impression as opposed to 1 impression per ad unit.

    i've comared my visitors and impressions. it looks even. anyone else can confirm this?

    yes, same here....I have a very significant drop in impressions, but no change in revenue. 2 days ago I lost 50,000 from my norm and yesterday I lost 70,000 from my norm. Basically, it's been declining ever since. I suspect there's a bug in reporting impressions. I don't see any huge difference in the ad targeting to justify a higher CTR.

    same here. I checked my traffic sources and stats and everything seems to be ok. Just low YPN impression count.

    CTR went down a little.

    hdpt100 - Please don't take this question the wrong way. But on other threads you said your account was terminated and here you ask about low impressions. Do you have multiple ypn accounts?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reporting your findings here about seeing low impressions in YPN.

    Today, we found an error in our YPN portal that caused inaccurate reporting of Ad Unit Impressions, CTR, CPM and Average RPC data for some of our publishers. Number of clicks and Revenue reporting for all publishers is accurate and was not impacted by this error. We have issued a fix for this error and you will see accurate data going forward within the next 24 hrs.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and we appreciate your patience.

    YahooSarah
