:-O
0,20 Euro minimum bid?!

Let me see if I got this right...

The minimum bid per keyword/phrase is equivalent to ~20 cents per click. For your money, you get top listings in Lycos, Netscape search, Hotbot and maybe Fireball (they have it as a logo on their site as an affiliate, hmm)

Am I missing something, or are they really asking 4 times as much minimum bid as that of overture (US)?

Type in: Fernglas
and you can see the 1st customer of eSpotting on Lycos.de and Fireball.de

I really don´t know (and can´t believe) that anybody find these links - on the right hand site on Lycos (a bit buried) or above the normal listings.

[BTW: On Fireball typing in "Fernglas" you´ll get a very strange advertisment you cannot hinder... ]

They've changed their mind again it seems, or am going mad?!

from... [espotting.de...]

*Ohne andere Angaben Ihrerseits wird der Tarif für unsere Schlüsselwörter mit einem Mindestgebot von 0,10 Euro festgelegt.

Basically saying you can get keyxwords for 10 cents now.

Hopefully by the time I've finished typing this it hasn't changed. Well... upwards anyway.

Starting to get into worthwhile ROI for some branches now. I just hope the "fernglas" company know what they are doing and that a good accountant has done the necessary sums. I guess they have the money to experiment though.

holy crap! that advertisement is too much.

everyone should go do the fernglas search just to see the ad. technically, an "internstitial" - never seen that before, on that grand and aggressive a scale.

definitely the future of the internet!

(god, i hope not)
