LookSmart has been one of the few models that have worked for me. I have received nothing but top notch service from each and every person I have worked with. I bought banner ads from them in 1998 and have had the same account rep since 2000. Some of you may not like their pay per click model, but I for one can appreciate their model. I can figure out exactly how much I need to pay in order to launch a new campaign. I really dont understand how many of the people in this forum believe that they deserve free traffic from any search engine. Without some form of human editing the internet will always be inundated with spam results.
I wish all the people at L$ the best and hope that someone will come in and bail them out.
