Look inside my YPN beta account with control panel screenshots

Yahoo has given me permission to show off some of the control panel features, so live vicariously through me and you can get a peek of what exactly is behind the login, even if you don’t have a YPN account.

Here is the screen you see when you login (click all thumbnails to see the true to live screenshot size – this one you will need to scroll down on the screenshot to see the entire thing). You see your daily balance, your running totals, as well as various announcements. See the handy “Estimated as of…” under the daily total. Sorry, I have removed all my specific earnings data to be in compliance with the YPN terms.


And you will see this at the top of all your control panel pages, you can see the various tabs. I didn’t include this in most of the screenshots to keep the size down.


If you are a new publisher, your next stop is going to be the Ad Setup tab. You can see how I ended up with two color templates named “jensense” that I mentioned in my first review of the YPN beta.


And this is what you see when you click “Customize Color Palette”. You can see the radio canadian pharmacy buttons I mentioned that have to be selected before modifying that particular color.


And of course you can create channels – although only 50 active at a time. YPN offers both “tracking categories” (ala the custom channels that AdSense offers) and URL channels.


And if you are so included to block any of your competitor’s ads.


Here is the reporting page, you can see exactly what metrics are included in your reporting page, and note the “Download Performance Report”. Again, in compliance with the terms, I can’t show you data, but all that is missing is the specific dates and figures.


Here is payment screen, where it shows another of the unique features to YPN, the ability to transfer from YPN to the search marketing account. My login is different with the two programs, so you won’t see specific details for transfering.


Lastly, is the Content Setup tab, which shows some of the other product offerings from Yahoo! that publishers can utilize on their sites (albiet without any monetary compensation).


The account information & tax information tabs are pretty standard, but I didn’t include them since they have all my personal info.

I hope you enjoyed your tour of the YPN control panel 🙂

  • Look inside Yahoo! Publisher Network

    I’m linking two posts from JenSense in the same day because I think you’d like to make a tour visiting the new Yahoo! Publisher Network. Jen is offering this great tour with screenshots and comments about the first days using YPN.


  • More details of YPN

    JenSense has more details on the workings of the Yahoo Publisher Network. She has lots of screenshots to show.

    It looks like anyone who is comfortable with AdSense will have no problems switching over to YPN. Now they just need to approve my appli…

  • Wow, YPN Looks excellent. Looks comparable to AdSense. I think I like Googles Overview page a little more though, it isn’t as clustered and seems to get straight to the point.

    Thanks a lot for giving us a tour!

  • Thank you for being gracious enough to share your experience, down to the screenshots. Thanks a lot.

  • Szczeg?owy wgl?d w panel YPN

    Jenstar opublikowa?a na swoim blogu JenSense szczeg?y dotycz?ce wygl?du panelu zarz?dzania wydawcy Yahoo Publisher Network. Znajdziecie tam sporo zrzut?w. Panel wygl?da ca?kiem schludnie.

  • I wanted to echo the thanks from the others — great job of filling us all in on what we were missing. Are the revenues thus far comparing favorably, negatively, or about the same as with Google?

  • Features and interface very much similar to adsense. I think Adsense has all the features one could wish for so there was nothing new Yahoo could add, except transferring earnings to advertising account.
