YPN still demanding USA traffic?

Discussion in 'Publisher Network' started by Setec, Nov 12, 2006.

    I just started using YPN, and people have warned me about having some non-USA traffic.

    I have US sites with around 70% US traffic, 5% UK, 5K Canada, and I'm a little worried that might get me in trouble. However, when I looked it up, I found that the stuff about non-US traffic referenced a clause in the YPN terms and conditions that doesn't seem to be there, or at least not as strictly as it was supposed to be before.

    Can you still get in trouble if some people from outside the United States somehow find your website on the internet?

    It would seem especially strange if this is still in effect given that I'm getting lots of YPN ads on one of my sites for products in England, Scotland, the UK, Canada, and China.

    YPN is seriously limiting their own profits and publishers when they favor USA publishers/traffic

    You probably wont get banned for placing ads on a page that has 70% US traffic, but Yahoo won't pay you for clicks generated by non US traffic so you would be wasting it anyway.

    Use geotargeting to display Adsense or another ad network's ads to international visitors, and YPN to US visitors.

    I get around 70% US traffic... since June 2006.. No problem at all.. Getting terminated from YPN is like getting into a car accident. No matter how safely you drive when other car crashes on you, it's inevitable

    Even people who bring quality US traffic gets banned and it is impossible to receive traffic from US alone

    Maybe Yahoo is thinking Mr. Bush will conquer the earth :p

    it's not because of their advertisers demanding. Google does have option for their advertisers to choose which country they want their ads to be displayed. I think YPN just making hard time for their publishers :mad: I know many publishers are really pissed off because of international traffic. I can't say YPN's programmers suck but there's something behind the curtain that we never know. It's not hard to targetting ads to certain country via accounting setting or from their ads servers :p but they don't want to do it.

    Does anybody know why they're allowing foreign ads for foreign products in foreign countries if they're still trying to restrict publishers to US traffic?

    people need to stop and remember that yahoo is beta. when you signed up they told you upfront that they are only looking for beta testers for there program with US traffic. So if you have international traffic then you better just stay with adsense or install some geotargeting.

    You are wrong, I had it confirmed by a YPN rep that publishers are not paid for clicks generated by international visitors.

    Do you think a YPN rep would say they pay for international traffic?

    I too noticed that. I am rotating adsense and YPN ads on my sites. The YPN is giving me more than adsense / click. The sites on which i have more traffic from US/UK i almost make 30+ a day. But the sites which have almost 10 times the traffic but from asia gives me only 5-10$.

    There is no set requirement, you should geotarget your US traffic to YPn and send the rest to Adsense or another network.

    Not ony does Yahoo Publisher hate 'media associated with the ad unit' but they also hate international traffic. If you can't filter most of it, pull the ads until you are able to filter atleast 95% of it.
