Netflip paid click rant
We're not number one at Kanoodle, are at NF?

Ove rthe last two weeks I've noticed a big incrase in traffic from Netflip - the paid to "spam click" engine. In looking closer, we are the top result at Netflip, and looking at the link, traced it back to Kanoodle. Surfers are paid .03 to click on us. Okay so far - (I hate this, but it is understandable.)
Now I find that we are fourth or fifth in Kanoodle. The bids above us are not listed at Netflip, and therefore are not subjected to the paid clickers. What gives? We pay .12 - 15 cents for useless traffic, but those that bid above us don't ???
Same phenom with Findwhat on occasion.
Any ideas? Does Kanoodle or Findwhat have a policy whereby advertisers can exclude listings from the paid-to-surf sites?
Any ideas?

>the paid to "spam click" engines

The only proven way that I know of to reduce JUNK traffic is to determine the source where your money is being TAKEN from [in this case Kanoodle] and pull the bids down on those KWs that are being targeted.

The "spam click" engines generally give the pond scum looking for 1 to 3 cents a directed search option suck as Games or MP3. It is less likely that these spam click folks will take the time to actually use the search function. Just don't bid on any KW that appears on the "spam click" engines pages.

I don't have the time to get into it now but there seems to be a pattern of ownership [at least by industry background] that runs through these "spam click" engines. Dig around and you may see what I mean. [searchprograms.com...]

imho

Hello,
I know Kanoodle.com does give you the option to turn of "pay to surf" traffic. they have two different traffic "things". this would explain why some of the higher bidders are not listed with netflip.com. As far as Findwhat.com, i'm not sure...hope this helps!

mitew99 is correct.

If you are advertising with Kanoodle and don't want your listings to appear on any of the pay per click search engines that pay it's users to search or click then you can turn it off.

In your Kanoodle account simply choose the "Sales Driver" program rather than "Brand Builder" and your listings won't appear in any of those search engines.

SearchCactus is another pay per click search engine that pays people to visit listings.

Hope that helps.
