Few moths ago we created a website only for the German speaking market. WE submitted the site to German all the free SE in Germany. We also bought some PPC advertising with Overture and Google. At the moment all the referrals that we are getting in the site (75%) come from PPC and I do not like that. Shall I submit my site using a PFI program, if so, which one(s)? How about espotting Germany, does anyone recommend it?

On the other hand I am very confused about the new yahoo SE. Is to only going to be for US and UK, what about Germany and other European Countries?

Heine I would appreciate any help from you, as you seem to know lots about Germany.

Although I'm unfortunatly not Heine [en.wikipedia.org] to me it looks like you are not positioned too well in Google. Google provides about 80-90% of SE traffic in Germany.
From recent experience I suppose Google is pretty slow these days to fully index and rank new sites, even when they have good backlinks, so this might be your problem.
More info on the current SE landscape in germany:

Yahoo - it will change to their new search, though I have no idea when. Remember though that Yahoo only has some 5-8% marketshare over here.
