They can't get Pay Pay Click to work, why would this be successful for them or advertisers?

Has anyone tried this? Any idea of how many advertisers are currently using this?

I am curious why you say they can't get PPC right, I have just setup an account with them to try it out a couple of days ago. Thanks.

well, instead of having Indian ppc click fraud companies, I guess this will give outsourced call centers something to do. ;)

I am no longer using Findwhat after 2+ years of being a satisfied client. The problem is that the traffic quality in the last 4 months has gone dramatically downhill. Over the last 2 years (in many B2B B2C industries) I was averaging approx 4% conversion. Conversion for me in the last 4 months has been about 0.5%. I have had multiple conversations about the declining quality of distribution partners; they basically admit that 'new' partners are the bulk of the traffic compared to the last 2 years.
I'm not saying do not try them, just saying their program for me has really deteriorated.

This looks like a good idea in theory, as it would make phone conversions a bit more measurable. It's like halfway between PPC and Affiliate sales. PD, you have a good point, and probably the first question that will come up will be: "How is fraud tracked?"
The catch 22 with answering that one too closely is, if it really works everyone else will jump all over the idea.
