It seems that the AdSense team is phoning former publishers who have switched over from AdSense to the Yahoo Publisher Network, and asking them to return to AdSense. kurtpdx, a member at WebmasterWorld, was phoned more than once by AdSense today on the issue.
Got a call from Adsense today, asking me to switch back to their product. I switched to Yahoo in September.
We talked about the number of reasons I’m currently staying with Yahoo (mainly $$$), and what it would take for me to switch back to Adsense (again, $$$).
This is quite interesting, although kurtpdx doesn’t reveal what level of publisher he is. It shows that AdSense actually is paying attention to which publishers have left AdSense for YPN, and taking steps to bring them back to AdSense.
I wonder if more ex-AdSense publishers will be receiving similar phone calls in the coming days and weeks. And perhaps YPN will start phoning those who have signed up for their publisher service yet haven’t made a big switch from AdSense to YPN.
