I would appreciate feedback you may have.
You should read the submit a site more carefully.
The $2500 minimum spend is for Large Customers and the CPC rate is a negotiated rate.
Small business listings has a CPC rate of 15c and the monthly spend limit is determined by you.
There is a onetime listing review fee of $29 and a minimum monthly spend of $15,but maybe you should read the Looklisting section.
Hope this helps
If you do not,then i think you answered the question yourself.
Looklistings accounts have a much more sophisticated tracking and reporting tool available to them over Small Business Listings.
Another word of caution,if your keywords are very popular expect to pay more then 15c CPC in Looklistings.
Microsoft's bcentral has been rolling out some new products and they are always happy to talk with you about their products. I suggest you give them a call. I'll bet even Microsoft won't recommend Looksmart! They didn't for me.
This states quite clearly what you need to do to cancel a campaign.
8. How do I cancel a campaign?
You can cancel a campaign from the Manage Campaign State page. You can reach this page via the Manage Campaign State icon next to the campaign on the Manage Campaigns page. Canceling a campaign will end traffic to the listings in the campaign until the campaign is reactivated. If you would like to reactivate a campaign, simply click on the reactivate icon next to the campaign on the Manage Campaigns Page or reactivate the campaign from the Manage Campaign State page.
Every Looksmart thread... there you are with the helpful advice. I don't care, but it would be nice for you to reveal the extent of your relationship with Looksmart. It would be good to have you here in an official capacity, like Googleguy.
Someone stickied this Jillibert quote to me:
"As Jrobbio points out it is the intention of Looksmart to use the Grub results in Wisenut and it may be a little while until Wisenut is as relevant as we would like." - note the word "we"!
11 of Jillibert's last 19 posts have been related to Looksmart services.
I think that if Looksmart are going to use an employee here, then there should be some disclosure. It would be very useful to have someone here that we could ask directly about Looksmart. It is not useful to have someone slyly posting promotional material as "help".
It is nice you take such a keen interest in some of my posts,but if you care to check all my posts from the very first day i posted here.i advised then and i will advise again now.
I have NOTHING to do with LOOK as an employee or as some other capacity.
I am not sure what you are so afraid of.
I am simply helping people out who have issues and or problems.
Should i search your posts to see if you have helped anyone out?
I simply have a keen interest in this entire sector and follow closely the machinations of all industry players.
After all,you are a part of the same industry aren't you?
And if there was NO competitive industry would you be whining there was NO competition?
"No frying, just asking for clarification. Jillibert is clearly involved with Looksmart in some way. This has been pointed out before, but AFAIK Jillibert hasn't stated the nature of the relationship."
would be greatly appreciated?
As your post is factually incorrect as i said,i have qualified my status previously and that status remains the same.
"I simply have a keen interest in this entire sector and follow closely the machinations of all industry players. "
Er..but especially Looksmart. In fact, more than half of your posts are related to Looksmart, and they ALWAYS present it in a very favourable light, despite evidence to the contrary.
"And if there was NO competitive industry would you be whining there was NO competition?"
What? Where did that come from? Getting a bit defensive of Looksmart, even when there isn't any criticism, aren't we?
Here is an example of your blatant promotion for Looksmart:
Question: "If you had to choose which paid inclusion to take a gamble on for several listings would you go for alltheweb/fast, altavista, or teoma? Which has the biggest "bang" for your buck? "
Your answer: "Robert..........to get into MSN is best done thru Looksmart for paid inclusion"
And just slip in this bit of promotion:
"LOOK gets you distribution across MSN,About.com,Infospace,Cnet,Road Runner plus many other distribution partners"
First in with a bit of Looksmart news:
And a bit of competition bashing:
"I personally would NOT use OVER or Google."
And of course, the original thread where you leapt in to defend Looksmart in a most bizarre fashion:
I think that, for the moment, I will stick with my original conclusion.
I would imagine that you can pretty much use your existing small business listing to give you an indication of the conversion rate that you will get.
Factor in a 15% duff click rate (standard), and work out the maximum CPC that you can afford, including a profit obviously.
