Yahoo Publisher Network
Similar to AdSense, site owners who utilized the Publisher Network could stick code onto the back end of their sites that would generate contextual ads on the fly. Yahoo launched it back in 2005 with the promise that Yahoo would vet the advertisements to make sure they were of a certain quality level.
At the end of March of this year, Yahoo sent an e-mail to Yahoo Publisher Network users telling them the service would be reaching the end of life just a month later, and that if they wanted to keep serving ads, to use Chitika's ad network instead.
