Does anyone know the stats of google versus overture?

i.e 1 cent spent on google = 4 cents spent on overture

i.e google is better value for money?

How does one classify the users of search engines i.e 25% chance google will buy something 10% chance overture buyers will buy?

any help would be appreciated?

You will find many different opionions on that one.

Such as Overture clickers are less internet savy and happy with any immediate result they find - and therefore convert better (ROI).

On the other hand Google offers much better customisation of your ad in that you can choose: language and country and can fool around with variations of your keyword(s).

You're probably best of stating the industry sector and country you are in (in general terms) to get some answers.
