Seeing that I'm gettinf suspected fraud from Looksmart I wonder who are the more trustworthy PPC companies ... Google, Yahoo, MSN - any others.

Google Adwords, Overture.

Although, rather than going for high traffic general keywords, create many small adverts, with many many low traffic keywords.
Optimise your keywords, take time doing it if you really want to reak the benefits.

MSN/Microsoft might be worth a shot, it seems to be uncolonized frontier now (but in a good way and not a expletivey, useless traffic kind of way).

I'll second MSN once you get past the clunky interface ( wish they'd support opera).
I have some keywords on the 3rd page where as on adwords they would be buried on the 10th page and further down. Definitely less advertisers on MSN.

MSN conversion rates and cost/ROI factors weighed, on average they have passed Yahoo (formerly Overture) in my portfolio of inhouse and managed accounts. Ordered... G, M, Y, G-content. My good stuff all stops there. Note, no Y content.

Before investing in Yahoo (Overture) it would be wise to read through the forum posts there.

The quality of their traffic has been steadily declining.

kanoodle.com, iqseek.com, enhance.com, miva.com, searchfeed.com ... those are the 2nd tier players in the market ... depending on what market you are in ... these guys might work for you!

Google is the only 1st tier PPC program at this time. MSN is a distant second thanks for the all their technical problems, Yahoo c'mon those clicks have been garbage for a long time now. And any of the other programs out there are a total waste of your money and time.
