Was this Adwords syndication announced and approved by Google?
I'm not sure I like this. I have heard negative things about the quality of Dealtime traffic (i.e. it doesn't convert at all).
That said, their users really do seem to be ready to spend and (imho) their service rocks.
i.e. I paid to be on Google. Syndicating the results could dilute the conversion power that Google typically provides. Will/should Google announce when these results get syndicated to new outlets? Should we have a choice whether our results appear on such outlets?
I am wondering whether Dealtime is sanctioned simply because their results in no way indicate that they are from Google. I don't know why Dealtime would include them without some financial gain from Google, though.
(Note: I had been considering placing products on Dealtime on a CPC basis. However, based on my research on them, I had decided not to do so because, as I said, I had heard some bad things about the quality of their traffic. Now, my Google Adwords are appearing on Dealtime and I am paying a HIGHER CPC than I would have had I been on Dealtime directly. See my issue?)
Hope that helps!
