Askjeeves Premier Listings?

Any experiences?

This is a two part question:

I have heard that Askjeeves is generally good for advertising educational sites (I sell educational software). Has anybody had any experience with their PPC (premier listings)?

The second question is silly. I can't find the link tosubmit my PPC ad. Do you really need to contact them (and apparently they want to call you because the contactform is otherwise not going to get sent), or am I just too stupid to find the link? ("premier listing" gives you a downloadable pdf file, but nothing more)

Well I emailed them 4 weeks ago saying I may wish to open account.

Still waiting for someone to contact me :)

Algebrator, regarding your 2 part question.. I'm biased on the first, but will point out that we have a high volume of education and reference based search queries. Also, our company was the recipient of The 2002 Learning Magazine Teacher’s Choice Award.

Your second part is true, you do need to contact a sales representative. You can either send me an email (mort@askjeeves.com) with your phone number and I'll call you, or fill in the info at the following URL and the rep in your region will contact you.

Hi All,

bad resuts: yes me too - although we are in a 'vague' industry... the 50p cpc we had to pay was ridiculous since i get them for 5p on Overture...

However, their support and stats they give you etc is good

Praise where praise is due: Mort saw my post above and had someone in the UK contact me within 24 hours!

Unfortunatly the min spend scuppered any direct business as the search fequency on my keywords is low.
As for a CPC of 50p it does appear high when espotting/overture costs 18p to 40p usually. Certainly not a show stopper but something they should look at as it discourages direct revenues
