We can't afford Overture new minimum rate, so would like to advertise with Search123, as they are supposed to be a major PPCSE provider. But I can't see where the search listings are featured.

Their partners page [search123.com] mentions companies like Netzero and Juno, but they just feature Overture ads. Furthermore, I can't see any search listings at everyone.net

So where are the results listed? Are they mainly 404 pages and defunct sites, which generally provide extremely poor quality traffic?

Sorry I can't help you, but the next PPC SE would be Espotting and there are some barging bids to picked up, I've got loads at min bid and I'm in a very competitive industry

I asked payperclickanalyst the same question about Search123 and this was the response I got:

S123 controls the ‘Personal Finance Listings’ text links on Netzero and Juno, just below the Overture type-in search bar.

Everyone.net is a S123 partner who makes its search capability available to their network of partner sites, but it cannot necessarily be seen from the Everyone.net home page.

S123 search results are also distributed to a network of other web sites and meta search engines. Here are a few of the sites where S123 listings are displayed (NOTE> some of these are meta engines which also display listings from other PPC search providers.):


The dealings I have had with Search123 have all been good. But, with all PPC search engines your success will depend on your industry and what you are trying to accomplish. They all have different strengths and search demographics.

I haven't dealt with Search123 enough to be able to say where their keyword and traffic strengths are yet. But I can say that their customer suppport is one of the best I've dealt with.
