Anyone tried Skiddily?

 2:13 am on Feb 7, 2001 (gmt 0)


Has anyone tried out Skiddily? I don't know if they've been doing paid listings already of if they just introduced it - though I'm thinking it's either new or at least not very popular... I just did a search for "headlines" and found: "Forget 'headlines' why don't you try to win over $11 MILLION". Not too relevant if you ask me.

Interestingly, I see some Goto listings on there too.

Just wondering if anyone has tried it out yet - or what everyone's opinions are...

Yeah, I've heard of them. They spammed me yesterday. Seems they found one of my goto listings and fired off an email to webmaster@mydomain.com. (In a nutshell, that's how they explained it.)

$.03 minimum bid for incentivized searches. I know these type ppc engines exist, but with a .03 minimum? Thank you very much, but I can do great with select .01 and .02 bids on goto, with (who'da thunk it) actual interested visitors. Funny how they conveniently left out the incentivized part in the email.

These PPC little guys seem to be getting aggressive, another called me today.

aj, have you tried FindWhat? They seem to be next choice after goto with most bidders.

Hi ajsinclair,

I haven't reviewed Skiddily yet but I the information I have on it so far is along the lines of what Drastic has already said.

They believes that paying people won't promote fraudulent clicks because it doesn't tell you which listings you are paid for.

FindWhat are usually the next most popular choice, but they have been under a bit of fire lately.

Bay9.com and 7Search.com are also recommended.

If you want more information on them or on any other pay per click search engines check out my profile.

I hope that helps (:

Drastic and Nathan,

Thanks. I have been using Findwhat and have had some success there - just looking for more oppurtunities..

They sent me something too - and it was clear that they were targeting me as a goto customer. An interesting idea idea I think, but why don't these PPC SEs notice that they need to have traffic to get clicks?

Nathan has some very interesting infomation at

I find it interesting that 2 players with traffic above 100,000 - NetFlip.com and ePilot.com are both "get paid to click" sites.

Does anyone have conversion stats on those sites?

That site stinks, so does searchfrog.com that they send you to. It looks like people trying to catch onto the SE rage but have no clue. hahah
