Idiot Kanoodle Affiliate

On Spaces.MSN.com

What's worse? A few poor converting affiliates that you could ask a PPC provider to stop sending traffic from or 100,000 affiliates asking their friends to click on their Spaces.MSN ad courtesy of Kanoodle?

I was doing some research on Kanoodle at Technorati and came across a spaces.msn profile of a guy who was asking people to click on the ads. He earned a whopping forty cents but there just has to be more abuse going out there on that level.

Yes, there's a question. If you are a Kanoodle advertiser, can you opt out of certain traffic sources, namely spaces.msn?

The best way to clean up your Kanoodle traffic is to simply dump the traffic entirely.

We've found Kanoodle to be one of the worst converting lots of traffic we've ever seen. We simply gave up on them last Spring. A joke of a company.

I opened my Kanoodle account a few months ago and thought I'd stumbled upon something great. I could buy keywords that would cost $8.00 per click on OV and Google for only 5 cents! I was going to be rich. Well, not exactly... I don't know where Kanoodle traffic comes from, but when I started using Overture to advertise, I noticed that the clickers were clicking on my links, instead of leaving within three seconds.
So in my experience, Kanoodle is useless. I'm now planning to spend mroe money on getting better traffic.

I would like to know if others have had this experience.

WSM I just sent this to kanoodle along with the details proving your connection with 7search.

I am sure they will find some way to show you their appreciation.

Great, maybe they can answer the question. It's a good question that PPC advertisers want to know - can you opt out of my.spaces advertising? Are they aware that people on my.spaces are publicly saying that people are abusing the system. I think Kanoodle would be happy to hear about it.

I think you can opt out by telling your account manager. Although you should not have to do this.

All of these networks will always have poorer quality traffic than google or yahoo. They simply can not afford to bring on board quality partners. Google and YSM can give these publishers much better deals.

It leaves the others with either google rejects and/or sites that dont fit the google TOS.
