Has anyone here actually paid any extra money for their listings (i.e. - Relevancy Keywords, Add a Category, etc.) and if so, would you recommend anyone else to do so?
Has it been worth it for you?
There's another interesting LS thread here [webmasterworld.com ]
Im still ranked position #3 to #5 in the listing, but I don't know how long this will last.
I don't know if you know the history behind, looksmart, but in brief, they changed there model from pay for inclusion to PPC, and did not honor existing legal contracts, with their pay for inclusion customers..
Most existing customers refused to switch, and their are lawsuits against looksmart for breach of contract. Senior Management has left, and Looksmart is just a shadow of its former self.
Most of us have boycotted looksmart. They don't bring much traffic anyways.
They all ranked well up until then, showing high in keyword searches in MSN. Since the switch to PPC, they seem to have fallen back in their keyword rank. My question was just to see if it was worth spending any extra money at this time to help boost rankings a little.
Your responses lead me to believe that is isnt worth it, just as I had suspected.
Now we would like to try LS but we have a #1 spot with Ink in our top KWs and are quite happy with our description. Problem is that in M$N search, we have 8 "WEB DIRECTORY SITES" above our #1 "WEB PAGES" ink results.
Does the L$ listing still corrupts the Ink? I froze on the "Enter your credit card" panel of L$ when the question popped up in my mind.
