Yahoo! Publisher Network Closed; Join Chitika Premium

by Tran Tinh on April 7, 2010

Yahoo! Publisher Network has been launched in closed Beta for a while and many bloggers hoped it could be a big competitor for Google Adsense or any other PPC advertising networks. However, everything was clear when it was officially announced to be closed on 30 April, 2010.

This decision as stated in its announcement only affects its self-service platform for small publishers who syndicate Yahoo’s Content Match (contextual) listings. However, this decision does not affect nor impact Yahoo’s relationship with large direct publishers and partners in any way.

We are almost small publishers then this decision really affects us. However, as YPNO is only open for US-based publishers then other countries seems to be out of the game. TechCrunch and many other bloggers have informed us about this but many of you did not believe as this news was just published the April Fool Day. But, it was true!

But, there is a good news that Yahoo! Publisher Network also recommend you to use Chitika Network which I have several times mentioned about andf you can easily see the logo on Chitika homepage as below:

Chitika YPNO Yahoo! Publisher Network Closed; Join Chitika Premium

I was quite surprised with this news and I thought that was an April Fool from Yahoo but unfortunately it was true and YPNO was really dead! Another wrong strategy from Yahoo.

Well, without YPNO, you can make money with Google Adsense, Chitika, AdBrite or Bidvertiser and you are not affected at all from this decision if you are not from US.

Good luck to you guys!

Am not from the US and thus it does not affects me in anyway, also i never thought yahoo was capable to run an ads network successfully… from what it looks like, yahoo is slowly closing up and would end up soon…

anyways, as rightly suggested by you, chitika is good, i have got paid by chitika in the past and the chitika premium service is pretty much a good alternative to adsense,

You are right, in terms of revenue of this blog, Chitika is much better than Adsense too. Thanks for dropping by and sharing your comments but as stated by Yahoo, it would only affect small publishers and they just launched another APT Ad Platform :yeah:

Ya bro, I had heard about this a few days ago. But this is of not much significance to me because YPN was not offered in our country. I think they were offered only in US and Canada. They were also offered in Europe but they rolled out last year. By the way, it is good that they are recommending Chitika as the option. Thank god, the users wont have to search on for a new advertising platform. By the way Yahoo has been slowly having a downslide, First we see closure of Geocities, then the news of closure of Mybloglog and now this, the closure of YPN. Hope so Yahoo gets back up soon :nooo:
