It's not techniclly a PPC, it's a flat rate for a position per month, but pretty much the same idea, pay per position.

I've heard of them a few times, but never heard of anyone who's actually tried them out before, if you have any expierence, please post what it is.

Thanks.

Is this someone trying to sell a keyword? That if a keyword is queried then your site would come up? That is not good it's a waste of money. The companies that do this use pushy marketing. and basically lie about the users who have the software that your placement will occur on. They have called me several times. It's basically like a kazaa search or similar software that they try to sell you positions based on keywords in the address bar. Good site optimization achieves the same results for less money

I don't think it's keyword selling, if it was (is?), I'd run away from it without a second look. It looks like its a PPC except that you don't pay per click, you pay per month.

That sounds interesting I'm going to keep my eye on this thread to see if that is an effective marketing tool.

I have not joined Towersearch but I see an obvious problem with their service -- they receive little traffic. I performed a nember of searches using my main keywords and many of the results had no listings. Towersearch charges $29.95 per month for 100 keywords. I doubt anyone will receive many clicks. At least with a second or third tier PPC engine you can put up $25, bid $0.01 per click, and eventually receive 2,500 clicks (albeit of poor quality or even fraudulant).

3rd tier ppcs in my industry often have bids that range to $0.25-0.50, so getting 60 clicks a month from TowerSearch would still fall into the average price, and well below G or OV.

Although I just learned that my industry isn't in TowerSearch, they have a limited range of industries they support, so guess I'll put them on hold until they expand or fall to the wayside.
