Has anyone tried both Kanoodle and Enhance (former Ah-ha)? I would like an honest assessment of which is better, or are they about the same?
I'm particularly concerned about bot traffic, since I've heard neither has really brought this issue under control?
If you had to chose one only, which would it be, or should I not waste my time with either one?
The bid prices seem very low, so this is a plus, but if a high amount of traffic is coming from bot clicks, what's the point? It won't convert to anything anyway. Am I right about this?
We get more volume from Kanoodle than we do from Enhance. Enhance is basically an afterthought. We spend roughly triple on Kanoodle that we do on Enhance.
I'd give Kanoodle a whirl. You can take or leave Enhance.
What do I need to look for in my logs to determine if a click-thru is from a bot, is there a "sure sign" that I need to look out for so that I can disable those keywords that are suspect?
Since I've been working with Overture and Google, there has not really been a need for me to worry about this, and FindWhat is working out very well for me so far, but the other second tier sites worry me.
I need more traffic (I get a pathetic 100,000 page views a month for a 250 page site) and need to find an effective way of increasing my visitors, as long as it is legitimate traffic that can convert.
The problem I had with Ah-Ha was no traffic, not bot traffic. Niche US city travel term; broader terms might do better. Customer service was great, though.

Because of amount of traffic or quality of traffic?
Because of quality.
I received many referrals from one affiliate who had several template sites. His business model is to feed clicks to Kanoodle through these similar looking "search" sites.
Prior to Kanoodle I have never heard of these "search" sites. After Kanoodle, I've never heard from them again.
These "search" sites apparently exist for the sole purpose of feeding clicks through the Kanoodle system.
The odd thing about these clicks is that:
This was as of November 2003. My advice for Kanoodle is that they better put their sales force to work on acquiring better partners.
My free advice to Kanoodle: Give Barry Diller a ring. ;) Y
