:) BlowSearch was on CNN- go to their page and you can watch the video:

"CNN interviews BlowSearch on April 1st, 2004"

I thought that their business/traffic will go to the sky once someone makes it to CNNbut that didn't happen what kinda surprised me.

No Article matches for "blowsearch" on CNN.com

I saw the CNN mentions on the Blowsearch site for 1 April, but as I had never heard of Blowsearch until today, I was reacting to the initial post. IOW, how do you know that the exposure didn't help him? Did he die, go bankrupt, get bought out, etc?

I don't think anyone will buy them, they are way too small. They are very unprofessional - won't reply to emails, they don't even respond to phone calls. The closest you can get is to email them - it's the same as throwing an email into wastebasket. Their traffic is going down anyway...

I wanted to say that it was a surprise that they can make it to CNN but sad that this didn't help them at all. From my point of view, that would be a lifetime chance you should grab with both hands.

I met with them at the SES 2004 conference in NYC... Such an unfortunate name.

Anybody want a blowsearch t-shirt? No way I'm wearing that thing in public.

BlowSearch I think doesn't have any real PPC advertisers, because it has partnered with MyGeek.com like SearchHippo and others. The technology - It uses InfoSpace feed which allows them to display results from Google, Overture, FindWhat, Enhance, LookSmart. The get traffic from the parent company AdOrigin.com a Ad Network. Not really a PPC solution in my mind. Stick with Google and you will be in the results.
