    Thumbs down Yahoo! and Tally Ho!

    I wonder how many members are aware of this little cosy bed-time relationship? It certainly came as a surprise to me:

    http://adscenter.europe.yahoo.com/3r...mediaplex.html

    Yahoo! in with double click and mediaplex (who merged with ValueClick)??????????????


    What Yahoo will do in order to track clicks is add the mpvc= parameter into the redirect string as below
    Pardon?

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Nice finding Nihil. I didn't know either. You wouldn't think so but then again you would be surprised.

    I can't say that I was aware of this but I have been seeing this in the traffic logs that I review at work. Each time an employee goes to Yahoo!, I see doubleclick traffic with it. That sheds light on what is happening. Thanks for the info!
