YPN Randomizing Number of Ads

Aug 19, 2005 - 1:16 pm 0 by

I was a little surprised to see Yahoo! following the lead of Google, so fast, when it comes to randomizing the number of ads shown in a contextual ad.

The ads at the top of this page randomizing between showing 1, 2, 3, 4, and sometimes zero ads. Maybe they are just testing it but I have screen captures of those flavors to show you. So you know, as I write this, it is still happening.

Posted a forum thread for discussion at DigitalPoint Forum Thread. After reporting it to JenSense, she captured some screen shots as well.
