I noticed my Ink paid listings are being replaced with LS descriptions. Does this also mean that referrals are now being logged as coming from LS even though they came from Inktomi?

Thanks

Ink accepts a monthly feed from LS. LS duplicates take precedent over the Ink listings- so you end up paying for what would otherwise be a paid for (or free) Ink listing.

Exactly, and then when you close your looksmart account becasue you think this is unfair and you just want to have the free ones back, they drop your site.
At least that's what happened to me. I'm still fighting with ineedhits.com, over it.
They claim it's not their fault etc. etc.
Some kid with no idea what he is talking about is telling me how it's my fault for closing my looksmart account.
Why should the two listing be linked in any way at all. IF they are, then you shouldn't be allowed to purchase it twice. Double dipping.

The feed only lasts for one month. Business.com can filter their feeds... It's worth investigating if LS can do it too.

Thanks for the feedback guys, didn't even cross my mind that I could paying twice. This certainly sounds a little devious, not to mention the fact that my Ink tracking codes become a little redundant when replaced with LS. Will try and take it up with Pos-tech/Ink.

Thanks
