Has anyone had any experience with BizRate.com's CPC search engine? Is it worth the CPC rates?

I have very good experience with them actually. They are partners with Google`s AdWords program and we get quite a lot of refferals from them each month to one of our Scandinavian shopping sites.

Never used bizrate, just taking the first foray into DealTime with less than stellar results so far.

Can anyone please give me 1 reason why people use CPC/PPC search engine's? I think its no use. 1) They don't have many sites because all the results are PPC/CPC and some people don't want to pay.
2) They don't have a big database and don't give you much results, because Google and stuff, Spidering is on 24 hours. PPC/CPC? I don't think half of it.

Most major ecommerce sites actually pay for the PPC on sites like Overture, Google, DealTime, Bizrate, Looksmart, and even Findwhat. The rest are garbage. All the others are full of fraudulent CTR, and is not worth the time to deal with any of them.

We just started on bizrate.com about a month ago. Not bad results as far as ROI but we haven't seen all too many orders. More than second tier search engines but far less than adwords or OV for the same # of ads/products.

Keep thinking that way. The fewer people who use CPC to advertise, the easier my job is. :)
You forget, CPC engines don't make their money by people searching on their engine, they make their money by selling their results to other engines.

Not true, our PPC Search Engine is heavily based on repeat searchers. We have a few things that even Google and Overture can't offer due to their corporate greed which our users really appreciate. We do not have any affiliations with other search engines just a few good partnerships with productive sites.
