I'd like to know how people feel about the smaller ones like Xuppa, 7search, Enhance(ah-ha), Search123, Brainfox, Kanoodle, GoClick, Epilot, Searchfeed, Lycos Insite, Looksmart, and Mamma.

Did I leave any out?

FindWhat and Kanoodle are pretty good for me.

EPilot didn't seem to have any traffic and the minimum buy of $100 was stupid, however I may get them after all..

Stay away from:

Findnothing
decreased
nonoodle

All didn't work for me, but others may have a different opinion.

epilot
brainfox
mygeek
roar
searchfeed
7search
goclick

are marginal to ok. The narrower the niche, the better the results. You also have to consider the traffic partners. The three that I stated to stay away from partner with anyone who has a site. Just keep that in mind.

Will really depend on the sector as much as anything.

Many of the publishers on the networks of some 2nd/3rd tier will deliver decent traffic but there will also be rogues.

To consider (depending on sector) :

Business.com
Looksmart Looklistings
FindWhat
Kanoodle
Enhance-Interactive (fomerly ah-ha)
Lycos Insite

Outside of those we've not had a positive experience. In some cases the rewards were not worth the effort (poor traffic quality in some cases, no traffic in others), they didn't work for certain sectors due to the demographics of the desired end-user.

The other thing to consider is the expatriated potential US clients. That brings into play the likes of Espotting, Mirago, Webfinder, Overture UK.

There are plenty of searches with a US focus where the searcher happens to be in the UK or Europe on business but is looking for fulfilment in the US.

Certainly not to be overlooked.

findwhat
kanoodle
pageseeker
lycos
business.com
goclick
search123
enhance
epilot
7search
brainfox

I'd say I've had a positive experience in some industries with all the companies above epilot. Of course in some industries I have bad experiences with all or some of these companies (including google and overture)

Hands down you will get a great ROI if you just stick with what works.

Google AdWords
Overture US & UK
Espotting
FindWhat

That's all. I've got friends who have used the smaller ones like ah-ha, and most were what looked like cheat clicks. I'm not saying all the clicks are like that, but of the 6 people I know that have used smaller engines, 2 of them demanded refunds and the rest never used them again. Plus, do you even know people who use the smaller engines? Just think to yourself when determining which PPC engines to use "Who do I know that uses these engines?". Should solve it fairly quickly. Goodluck.

Your experience will vary depending on the industry and your revenue demands.

However, consider avoiding 3rd party PPC sites with high minimum deposits or set up fees.

Also while some might give you marginal ROI before computing time/hassle they might not be worth managing.

Enhance is particulary horrible for spamming and rediculous phone calls.
