    Seems like it could be very lucrative...

    When I found that post, I realized that there's even a forum for it now. Here, it's at the other end of This Link.

    LOL... If your paying Yahoo/Overture you'll never see legit contectual advertising until they remove FindWhat -Kanoodle 180Solutions Search Scout and every other BHO search tool bar and the Get Paid to ... wanks from their syndication partner list. What makes you think, with this history of working with all known PPCSE junk traffic cheats. Yahoo will possibly play fair with an Adsense clone. I was was invited to be a Yahoo Beta contextual Ad member months ago and never bothered to log-in and place the scripts on my ...or clients sites. I just can't support an advertising enity giving out millions monthly to the BHO commission stealing wanks.

    Hello,

    a) So far on a daily average basis, the payout has been less then Adsense for me.

    b) The daily fluctuation(%) is greater then Adsense.

    c) My best revenue day was also my lowest click count day. This maybe a beta issue.

    d) Although you can place 3 ad "units" on a page (like Adsense), you'll get duplicate ads. This may get sorted out while we're under beta.

    The best thing (for me) is the customer service, I've had two proactive calls from Yahoo.

    Will incorporate it into my codes, for the long-term, to get diversity from adsense.

    Best,
    Tuan

    Hopefully it will improve Overtures poor conversion ratio compared to Adwords. All 7 of my merchants using both Overture & Google PPCSE show conversion ratios below natural SERP links from identical keyword Ads and landing pages from Yahoos offerings. None ever filled a refund request from Google for click fraud. They have from Overture and some 2nd tier PPCSE's.

    Thanks for the head up - I didn't realize there was a forum set up for this yet.

    I find that some ads are relevant to my niche market, not necessarily to the specific page content. Their payouts are way better than AdSense at the moment, though. They are on about 10 of my pages, Adsense on about 100 pages and I make more with Yahoo daily.
    Peace,
