Ah-ha is changing all grandfathered bids under .03 in March to .03. What does everyone thing about this? Is Ah-ha (and partners) worth .03 per click?

Any comments?

I think we'll be deleting terms en masse.

It means it'll be time to reevaluate ah-ha again. I did (for the first time since I opened my accounts) get two customer support calls recently from them and it really does look like they are making an effort to increase their customer relationships, etc.

I think if they started with more relevant traffic, they would see more customer loyalty without working so hard.

due to the third class affiliates and high fraudulent clicks ha-ha is not worth more than 0.01.

will not fund my account after march.

I would kill for that infrequency. They leave a VM at least every month. About what, I dunno.

Yea, I just closed my account today. Needed to add some new terms, but I will not give ah-ha more than 1 cent per click. Reason being, their wonderful "new" partners.

I wonder what will happen to them after the first? I see that they are already running eBay befree banners around the site. I do not think that this was a wise decision for them to make. I also think this was done due to Findnothing's min. bid price raise.

What 'new' partners are you talking about?

Are they large sites with actual content, or just more sites that run syndicaitons of their ads?

According to our former Ah-ha rep, they had added an additional 150 or so new partner sites. They also had added an affiliate partner info link on the front page. So, they are really fishing for new partners to extend their reach. If they were quality partners, I would not mind, but these have no quality to them. I am currently compiling a list of some of these sites, and I would be happy to share with anyone. Sticky me if anyone wants a partial list.
