    Yahoo started out with a beta bang and paying up to 50% more than Goog per click. They've just this week started to falter, price per click dropped below my minimum "OK by me" figure.

    Try both, see which performs better for you. Goog has a better CTR but Yahoo still pays more (don't put them on the same pages - against TOS!). Might go to about even payouts at which point, I'm back to AM full time. ;-)

    We signed up with Yahoo but they never got back to us,so who knows.Adsence is doing ok and the listings are staying with the content of the pages we have them on.

    Yes, when I signed up for Yahoo, I noticed a statement to the effect that rates may drop after getting out of Beta. I would not go switching all my existing ads only to make less money down the line. I am going to try yahoo on a new site of mine however that does not have too many pages.

    I applied for Yahoo and heard back in a few days, put up a few test ads and they were so non-targeted I had to take them down.

    Well, not completely. ;-)

    I AM pissed off that their cost per click has dropped to below-acceptable levels. It's easy to change them all back to Goog ads. I only put Yahoo on a few pages to test it. It was good in beta, now it's almost as bad as Goog payouts.
