Does to $39 submission fee apply to EACH single page I submit? How much traffic should I expect for one page?
Will it remain listed "etarnally"?
Under what searches will my page appear? Does the $39 guarantee any ranking at all, or is there a spidering "algorhythym" involved?
In short - It seems quite expensive and with lesser control than PPC - as For each $39 - I'd need a few hundred clicks to justify the expense. is there a "textbook" paid-inclusion strategy?
>>>How much traffic should I expect for one page?
Depends on the target keywords.
>>>Will it remain listed "etarnally"?
No, the fee is annual.
>>>Under what searches will my page appear?
What is your page optimized for?
>>>Does the $39 guarantee any ranking at all, or is there a spidering "algorhythym" involved?
The results are algorithm based.
Are you fixed to that url, or can you change it?
Is using a 302 response code allowed?
Actually you pay $39 for the first URL and $25 for all subsequent URLs.
Normally I would talk about renewal pricing but doesn't seem a lot of point now. ;-)
Paid Inclusion isn't for everyone. Basically I feel that you need to determine what you are trying to acheive and how much you are willing to spend to acheive this.
The benefits of PFI are:
* Fast Inclusion (48 - 72 hours for Ink)
* 48 Hour refreshes - fresh content and ability to optimize
* 12 months included in the index
* Reporting made available by the reseller
* Ability to submit deep content
And intil April 15th, you will get Yahoo! traffic as well. :)
When I speak about PFI, I point out that even though you may be picked up for free, can you afford to not have that traffic immediately? i.e. if it takes 8 weeks to get listed, and PFI takes 3 days, what is the return on those 8 weeks (minus 3 days) of additional traffic? In many cases, I have built the case for some large customer just on this point alone. Especially true for new sites.
