Just to share my experience with bay9.com
3 months ago, I opened an account with bay9. I managed only to enter one search term successfully as the customer control panel was buggy, had broken links and often timed-out.
I followed their instructions and entered all my other entries in an excel file and emailed them. My account was never updated with the search terms up till now.
I did not even bother to email them about it. The one search term I entered got only 2 clicks until now, and one was from me testing. This same term is searched over 30,000 times a month on goto.com and a free listing on nbci.com generates over 10 clicks a day.
So I converted my search term money to their more expensive banner ads. (And I hate the low-class banners they display). Again, when I searched for my own banner listing, the banner displayed was a broken image link.
I never logged in to my bay9 account anymore, but that's not the end. I started receiving spam mail from bay9 about their low-cost banners, and despite following their instructions to unsubscribe twice, I was never taken off their spam list.
Do any of you have similar experience or otherwise with Bay9? I must say this is one of the most unprofessional and ineffective web-service I have subscribed to.
I just did a search for Bay9 on another forum
