just got some info that Findwhat has (or will soon?) launch a 'Pay Per Call' thing, with the gist of it being you're listed like regular listings it seems, but when the searcher clicks on the title it leads to a mini-profile with a toll free number that's routed to your local telephone number.

sounds like a really cool concept to me .. plus less likely to get prank calls than you are to get idle clicks ... anyone heard of it and/or planning to try it?

I'm willing to try almost anything that's on a cost-per-action basis, and these calls could potentially be much more valuable than clicks...especially for our industry.

I think they're on to something. Also, because it's pay-per-call, they will also be able to tap into a large local market.

But maybe I'm just sick of paying $5.00 per click on Overture and Google.

Sounds like an exciting product initially but need to be wary depending on the market sector.

For example, if I'm a local advertiser (e.g. handyman) it's probably a great thing. However, If I'm an insurance broker and I need quotes/applications filling in, it would actually be more costly have have the forms filled in over the phone than on the web page.

It certainly sounds interesting and could be very useful in B2B markets where people often prefer to call about a product or service.
