YPN ads Down

I’ve had a couple of readers IM me in the last hour to let me know that YPN ads are down/blank and have been so for ‘hours’. WebmasterWorld Forums also have a discussion on the topic of YPN Blank Ads as does Digital Points forum in the Yahoo Ads Down? thread which confirms that it’s wider spread than just a few scattered publishers.

Looks like it’s more than a quick glitch with some reporting up to 3 hours of no ads.

update: Some publishers are reporting that their ads are returning slowly to some of their sites.

    YPN ads are running but only at a slow pace. they seem to be coming back online as we are seeing them about 1 out of 10 times now.

    YPN is getting them back up, and hopefully this means even better targetting!

    YPN has been in contact with many YPN Beta testers. Trying to improve their services and asking what else they coulf offer to build more revenue.
    The ideas are endless and i look forward to new ways of using YPN and as their targetting does get better, YPN is going to be awesome.

    Oh yeah…. it looks like they are back up to speed.
