I have just setup an account with them two weeks ago, I can't believe at least 99%(if not all) of the traffic are fraudulent, pure click-thru to steal my money and bandwidth and gone, don't even bother to spend a few more seconds in my site.
Hello chaitan, I just wonder if you could sticky mail me the keywords you've used, please? If it's not a secret/problem/something else. I'm doing a small research on the subject. Just out of curiosity.
Guess they haven't changed. I have found that some of the smaller ones aren't that bad. I will be giving a few of them the ole kick the tires situation and let everyone know what my opinion is. Cause I'm sure everyone cares :)
In addition to traffic issues, I found their business practices irritating -- constant phone calls to "see how you're doing," barrage of horrible email offers to spend more money, constant role-out of new half-baked services, etc.
RoboPal, The keywords I am using are popular magazine titles for our magazine site, which working well with overture or google, although few time more expensive, they do bring us real users (who may not, yet, place any order but at least spent their time in exploring our site) as well as customers. The average ah-ha CPC is much cheaper, but the cost-per-user is much much much higher, not to mention cost-per-customer.
