First, we reported on July 16th that the Yahoo Publisher Network was running slower than usual. The next day, we reported that Yahoo will fix the outage by next week. Now, DigitalPoint Forum members are wondering if they will get the lost revenue due to the outage.
Apparently, the answer is no.
I spoke with a manager at YPN who said they will not be making payments up to the YPN publishers as 'they lost revenue as well'. One begins to wonder if Yahoo gets it...?
The disappointment is obvious. Members think that Yahoo just doesn't get it despite their own losses.
Of course they lost revenue themselves, but they don't care about the publisher enough to accept responsibility and admit they were in the wrong.
