Same here. Lots of clicks with almost no results.

Cost per action much higher then any other PPC including Overture.

Don't really do CPA.

CPC and CPM

Have you put a tracker on your webpage. I used a separate
page for Kanoodle when I used to advertise with them, and
put a tracker on this page. Found out that most of the
traffic was coming from Hotbar. This traffic was
worthless to me, and I will never advertise with them
again.

I never heard anybody say a good thing about them. Only bad, why to run a business Kanoodle....I guess they don't care.

thanx for the feedback. I'm realizing that as well, it's useless.

Is there a special company you use for PPC, that actually WORKS? I tried several already but it seems that i'm bumping into the worse ones.

Kanoodle hasn't worked for me either. I recommend findwhat, ah-ha.com and even goclick. Good luck

Kanoodle has been hit and miss, but mostly miss. I sprinks has never made an effort to fix any fraud problem, but ah-ha, kanoodle, goclick, and findwhat will credit your account when you prove fraudlant clicks with a report.

Fraudulant clicks have aggravated me to no end.

It's true, ah-ha escpecially. They all have some bad traffic, it really can't be helped, however ah-ha and others make a good effort to credit you back and make you happy. Ah-ha is the best 2nd tier ppc engine out there by far.

We've eliminated entirely all but Google, FindWhat, Lycos, Espotting and Overture.

All the others, despite there best efforts to tell us otherwise have not delivered a single sale between them, with some producing ridiculous numbers of clicks without ringing the cash drawer. When the ones mentioned above are delivering between 1 and 3% clicks to sales, and using the same site, same landing page etc. where we would have expected say 20 sales, we didn't get one.

We've used tracking URL's and either they don't parse the URL's correctly, which if it's the case they are shooting themselves in the foot big time, or they don't produce results.

One of our clients has used Xuppa for a campaign in a competitive arena and they haven't even had a click, never mind a sale, and that is after a month......what is the point of that?

webdiversity, I agree with your list except when I tried Lycos they weren't delivering much traffic. Has the quantity of their traffic picked-up?
