Findwhat's traffic...
Up or down?

The traffic I had been receiving for the last month or so has been less then stellar. Mostly domain forwards, hotbar, etc. Have they taken on some lesser quality sites? I do not even use generic words, just plain garbage.

How's everyone else doing?

"Therefore, their traffic is in the same league as Findnothing."

Findwhat=Findnothing how true

Findwhat is about the poorest ROI ever. Not sure where my money went, but I hope they had a great vacation on it ;)

>>CompWorld said >>Considering that the traffic from Findwhat is pure garbage, they do not deserve to charge .05 minimum. We are not talking about Google or even Overture. We are talking about Findwhat. The traffic we receive from Ah-ha and a few others have actually gotten better. Hence, we have been raising our bid on each phrase/word.

Hit the nail on the head. I couldn't agree more. I thought I had holes in my pocket, then realized it was Findwhat. ;)

I have yet to hear ANYONE say that thye get decent referrals from FW. It's interesting because they have grown into a huge PPC, and a very profitable company.

Why do advertisers keep pumping money into FW?

What ROI tool do you guys use? I use many search engines, but I, at least to this point do not use any tool to manage the ROI coming from the variety of engines I use. So, is there a tool out there that allows you to actually determine the ROI from the variety of search engines out there?

Thanks,

Hfactor

For the same reason some of us keep several other small PPCs.

Our ROI on Findwhat is 1/4th of what G and OV are. If you take our Findwhat bid x 4, it's a little smaller than OV, and a little higher than G, which makes it's ROI still between G and OV. Bottom line, we still make money with it.

Yes there are ROI tools out there. Just do a search on Google for ROI tracker, trackers, other similar terms.
