I would tend to do the same thing as the fact of the matter is most of the partner sites only display the top 1-3 listings anyway so no matter what unless they buy at first glance your going to get clicked on anyway. Same applies write killer ads, attract attencion and have a site worthy of that attencion and you will reap the rewards of your labour. There is absolutly no sense in paying 200$ more than the person 2 places back from you for a 1st place spot. If you want that slot that badly do it the cheaper way and get some seo done (obviously its not that easy).
