this has probably been discussed too many times, forgive me but does cuurnetly Findwhat or any other PPC site traffic levels compete with OV / GGL?

How big is No.3 compared to Big two?

i would say "globally" in terms of traffic. but
please name two SEs if you believe that there's a different No.3 for Europe and US.

In the US - FindWhat

In the UK - Espotting

Note: FindWhat has just merged with Espotting

europe #3 would probably be Espotting, which basically is the new acquisition/merger of findwhat in the USA.

not sure of what premium syndication deals they have these days.

I think if we're talking (assuming) about raw traffic from PPC programs, a possible order (in my opinion) might be a tie between Google Adwords and Overture/Yahoo listings, and then FindWhat. Does anyone know of any resources that list the total number of searches "serviced" by each PPC?

Another important question might be which PPCs provided the highest return on investment.

Best of luck,

What are the opinions on Looksmart? They seem to be out of favor around these forums lately.

Looksmart used to have some pretty good partnerships with MSN and others. They have now become just another "smaller" ppc option with the only difference being their system is absolutely horrible and their customer service is non existant.

Others may have had luck with them but in my opinion they have changed their offerings so much and "screwed over" so many customers that it's not worth trying anymore.
