YPN acknowledge Some Problems with Performance

Some YPN publishers are talking in forums that YPN’s performance has been pretty low over the last few days. YahooSarah (Yahoo’s rep at Digital Point) has responded in this thread by acknowledging the problems and writing:

‘Hi everyone,

I received more information this morning, so I hope I can provide a bit more clarity now. Last Friday we launched some new code into production. Several complications occurred during the launch, and as a result overall system performance was impaired. We’ve stabilized the situation now and expect to continue to make improvements over the next few days.

On behalf of the entire YPN beta team, I apologize for the inconvenience. Please continue to let me know how your sites are performing — your feedback is really valuable to us as we continue to refine our beta program and work through our growing pains.


Thanks to tripp for the tip.

    I haven’t noticed. Sure, Saturday and Sunday have been low, but I just figured that was normal weekend stuff – the week was actually one of my better weeks.

    Heck, if they decide to pay me more, I won’t complain!

    WI have noticed a dip over the past couple of months. It was sharper this weekend. I am glad to see they acknowledge it, and I hope they repay us by better payouts!
    Also better targetting would be nice… hopefully soon like they told me at
