Kanoodle - Any Success? For that matter, Overture?

Any of you AdWords Loyals having success?

I have sites in the Sub Prime Credit arena and use AdWords with success.

I went to go expand my clicks and looked at Kanoodle and saw that some of the kw's that go for $4+ to get first page in G have no one bidding on them and I can get into $0.05. Something is Rotten in DK, and I don't know what it is.

I spoke to Kanoodle about it and their explanation wasn't much of an explanation at all, so I thought I'd come right to the source and see if anyone who has had success on Ad Words has had success on Kanoodle. Or Overture for that matter. I'm just curious if there's a trend y'all have seen with some of your sites where ONLY Google clicks work or ONLY Overture clicks or ONLY Kanoodle clicks, etc., etc. Any thoughts, I'd love to hear about it.

It wasn't Kanoodle, but I tried a similar experiment with another lesser PPC last week.

Yeah, 5-6 cent clicks that Google charges $5.00 for, what a bargain! Well I'm glad that I put a $25.00 daily cap on that PPC. It was gone in 45 minutes and of course not one sale.

I went into my logs to see where these clicks were coming from and the "sites" that this PPC farms out to make "Made for AdSense" sites look like high quality portals.

One prompted me for my id for the "Paid to read" program that I was using! Another worked "google" into the URL. I doubt I got one legitimate click.

Thanks for reminding me to do a full spyware scan.

If selling in the UK, eSpotting produces a small but maintenence-free stream of decent traffic.

The rest are C-R-A-P.

Have a look at Forum 85 at [webmasterworld.com...]

You'll find all sorts of input from disappointed clients for all sorts of 2nd tier PPC companies.

There is also an Overture / Yahoo forum.
