hey guys, started running ask jeeves ppc on monday. had over 30 of my campaigns go live tues morn. so far, running about 120 keywords in the travel section. it is producing very little traffic. i am talking, 4 clicks over day and a half. what is going on here. is there scope really that small. these are big kewords i am running. they will be recieving a call from me today. maybe they need to expand there network to support this ppc, but, they will not be keeping clients with these type of results. anyone else share there experiences with this new system yet, please share.

I have been live since monday as well, and I am quite happy with the results. It is currently 4.1% of my traffic and 4.3% of convertions. I just wish they had more users/traffic.

I am a bit confused, do they partner with Looksmart?
The system looks exactly the same, and as I already advertise with AdWords and Looksmart my listings already appear on Ask.

If they are using LookSmart they are using the ad platform through a license with LookSmart.

It appears ASK's sponsored ads under the new program are showing in the top three spots on ASK. Google ads are on the bottom of the page on pages I've looked at.
In answer to your question it does seems possible you could appear on the top and bottom of the page if you use AdWords and the new ASK program. Is that bad?
