Mirago vs. Espotting traffic
are figures on the same scale?

If I get, say, 100 clicks/day from Espotting for a entertainment website, how many daily clicks will I get for the same keyword with the same CPC using Mirago?

That's what I expected indeed.
Do you know anything about other PPC networks such as Geeoo or Zencudo?

Never heard of either of them - do they even operate in the UK?

But once you delete the fraudulent ones from Espots you'll probably be better of with Mirago :o

Go on mods...delete it...you know it makes sense!

Its is a lot up to what keywords you use. Main keywords of finance, travel, shopping etc with Mirago should deliver excellent quality traffic and ROI as you getting more for less.

If you are smaller operation with tighter budget, there could be even better pickings to be found. With some keyword research one would be able to find keywords with no or very few bidders. The traffic level may be low but as I say "If you are smaller operation with tighter budget".

Its hard to say what is the ratio of clicks you would get from Mirago compare to espoting, at the end of the day, Mirago is one of the players in UK market and should not be forgotten when planning PPC campaign.

Ross, At the moment I get some good conversions on Espotting. Might be something to do with all those directory listings competing in the serps with me :) Don't you thin Bobby_Davro?

Unfortunately, Mirago costs more per sale in several areas currently. I do not know enough about it to know why.

Let me follow up by saying that Mirago is not a crappy PPC engine. It gains good (but small) traffic, is the only remaing UK spidering engine and is very worthy of support.

Frankly, if I want an addition to the OT/Espotting duo-opoly, then Mirago is the only one that has any merit.

lovely bunch of people at Mirago, got a growing network of search partners and account for double figure % of UK mthly search inventory.

oh yes, and even the females there know about high performance cars, whcih is always a bonus when s are concerned.

they could do with some more quality staff though :)

They need to concentrate on getting more advertisers. This would help them grow and get more partners. Even simple affiliate program can spread the word, networks like CJ can do wonders.

Mentioning the spider/index/search part, I am not too impressed with it. Clustered results look much better.

I agree with Shak, great bunch of people.

Hi,

Can someone explain how Mirago clisk URLs get into the Google index?

Try searching inurl:www.mirago.co.uk/scripts/dendrite/ then click on repeat search with the omited results included.

Best wishes

Sid

yer that's dead easy... they are not indexed..... Google is aware that the url exists due to partner sites linking to the dendrite folder.

you may also notice [mirago.co.uk...] the exclusion of the /scripts/dendrite.aspx thats why their is no cache.

You may or may not be aware but mirago's click fraud system catch's all these clicks and disallows them.

So no harm done ;)
