If you had good referals from Sympatico I suggest you check your listings. They recently changed the interface that show only "most popular". If users want real results they have to click some other tab. I believe a lot of users will switch. (especially that you have to wait twice for doubleclick to display the adds... )

Update.

Thinghs came back to normal. They show the "general" tab as default. They must have noticed all the queries like "better search engine". ;)

I just tried it and it was Directhits listings that come up as default. Maybe they are switching between them

Sorry, I tried the French interface at www2. It is still "popular" by default on the English interface. Hope they will change this soon. Sympatico is # 2 for my French Canadian sites.

I definately noticed a big difference during the time they'd switched to the tabs.
I think I'm the only one here getting quality traffic out of them. My demographics just line right up with them.
