Need LookSmart Advice Dmitri010 msg:20332 6:44 pm on Apr 19, 2003 (gmt 0) I need some advice on LookSmart and whether itís worth the money.
I am not sure how LookSmart works, but this is what happens. My site shows up in the results on LookSmart, but they come from Inktomi. If I search my company name, for obvious reasons it is #1. If I search for main keyword, then it is listed as #28 in the Inktomi results on the 3-rd page. The first page and a half are "reviewed websites".
So, do I need to pay to be listed in the reviewed section? If so, will I be charged per click or is it one time fee or both?

ur site is showing up in Inktomi feeds which are always after the following the looksmart listings.
To be included in the Looksmart reviewed sites will cost you $0,15 per click witha a 1 time set-up fee of $29.
the best/only traffic you will get will be MSN traffic, and depending how competitive your industry is, $0,15 a click aint too bad.
also you may want to read some other posts on how to submit, what title, description and keywords to choose for Looksmart.
This WILL make a serious difference to you getting quality traffic out of Looksmart.
(btw, maybe this post should be moved to a more relevant category)

That's what I thought.

Is your site a commercial one?
If it is the advice given by Shak is correct however if you have a non commercial site you can get that listed into the Look directory for free through Zeal.
If you do have a commercial site might be worthwhile looking at another Looksmart product called The Grub
Its very new and will update your own site and index it into the LOOK/Wisenut search engine.
Hope that helps
