Our site is already very well indexed in the US search engines. Our AdWords & Overture ads are highly ranked top performers.
But I'm looking to gain exposure in the German market.
It looks as if the top German search engines (from my admittedly basic research) are Google.de, Yahoo.de, Altavista.de, Abacho.com, T-Online.de, Sharelook.de, Euroseek.com, Web.de, and Fireball. Our SERPS results are pretty good on some (Google), but we're near non-existent on others (Altavista).
I'm thinking of trying some European PPC ads. The ones I'm looking at are eSpotting & FindWhat.
My question is: are they worth it?
After analyzing "traffic" from Looksmart it was fairly evident that their clicks are worthless! (Even more hilarious was their email recommendation to increase my budget 10x)
I don't want to signup and waste money with a site that just feeds me worthless traffic from the likes of searchfoo.com.
Are eSpotting & FindWhat reputable? Are there options to target Germany with our existing Google & Overture accounts? I think the main engines I want to target are Fireball, Altavista & Yahoo.
Any suggestions/advice is appreciated.
