Hello,

Since I'm not getting any response, can I assume nobody uses this program?

well, I think you may so..

That's an interesting company, though.. They don't serve ads targeted by site categorization, they say they do make this by querying the page (like Google)

They give 60% to the publisher and they are an Israel company, as I understood.

From what I read, the first impression I had is that they entered business to play on top. They look serious. Don't know what it will look like in the future, of course.

Thanks Teasers!

I was wondering if Targetpoint was going to crawl my site in order to place more relevant ads. I only joined on Friday, so perhaps they haven't done this because of the weekend. So I'll be curious to see if the ads become more focused.

I used them and then found Adsense pays more per click, I did like and used their live chat system for support.

Overall I had a good impression of them.

I agree that TargetPoint doesn't offer offer high payouts per click. It's like 5 cents a click on average! UGH! Oh well, better than nothing I guess!

why would one use #*$! at a lower cpc, when adsense is the alternative?

I used TargetPoint just as an experiment last year....the results...dismal at best. AdSense is the reigning champ until someone (probably out of nowhere) usurp's Google from their throne.

"why Targetpoint?

Yes, I'm beginning to see that Targetpoint doesn't pay squat. I'd like some names of "other" PPC programs I can try please.

I'm hooked on cbprosense. It is not a ppc program but a script connected to an affiliate program. It works much like adsense (content targeting wise) and most products pay up to 75% in commissions. Works really well for me.

Adbrite, Linkworth, Adsonar

I am not recommending them, just telling you they exist, you must form your own opinions.

And having trialled Targetpoint, we dumped them. They were hopeless in terms of revenue, and the adverts are NOT content relevant, you pick a category for the advert to be displayed - and even then they often don't have any adverts to display.

Isn't this clickbank based? meaning a lot of the products are internet based, ebooks, et al. So if I sell digital cameras this probably wouldn't work for me, or would it?
