It is my first posting here. I think it is a rich forum, thank you all and special thanks to Brett. I am just a part time webmaster, let's say for fun.
I tryed a lot of things listed in this forum and I could say that it is still not working on google but on French SE I got very very good results.
Now back to T. I have some pages listed on the first page for my own KW. A'm happy about that but I think that's because T in not known in French speaking countries. "or perhaps the SEO for G is applicable to T".
But I think there was no updates since a long time.
If T will drive traffic to your site I think that $18 is worth it and will be ready to pay if it the cost remains under $0.01 per click. for the moment no visitors from T.
Unless anyone has heard rumors, rumblings to that effect, I wouldn't pay to be included in AJ. We get zero traffic from them even with a #1 KW ranking.

P.S. My main market is not that competitive yet so am in watching brief mode on this issue.
There is also a lot of dead wood in the database. Might be worth it if they would spider down 100 pages or so from the top for that price.
I am going to have to think about this.
Unless of course there are some yet-to-be-announced partnership deals that might all of a sudden change everyone's opinion of Teoma's value...:)
I think that is the general conception. Based on what I've seen the last year from DirectHit/AJ, its a misconception. I think the tandom of AJ/DH is the best kept secret in all of seo.
AJ/DH out produces (10 fold) 22 yahoo listings for us.
What type of sites Brett? I've heard others say the same thing, but I haven't had the same experience. Nothing from Direct Hit and very, very little from ask Jeeves for my stuff.
Re: Teoma - I don't mind paying for inclusion at all, but I flatly refuse to pay when Overture or any other PPC results will be placed ahead of mine. I'm not going to pay to list my site just to make the PPC sites "appear" legitimate!
I'll stick with Google, Fast and hopefully "someday" Wisenut if they ever update their index.

Also, in combination, they have a pretty long reach to the dynamic feed search companies in which results from AJ or DH, along with MS and Google, seem to significantly affect ranking.
Any one had any luck getting a listing out of the que yet...
